Practice Makes Perfect

June 27th, 2017 Comments off


How many times have you sat through a boring training session and asked yourself, why am I here? Adding real life situations and hands-on training is a breath of fresh air.

I just completed my CPI Instructor course for Non-Violent Crisis Intervention and found that the hands-on and practical training very useful. You can only learn so much sitting in a classroom. It was also interesting how everyone offered different perspectives based on his or her work environment. There were people from various industries such as ER nurses to teachers that dealt with behavioural issues.

Next time you conduct a training exercise, get people up on their feet and subject them to real world situations. Not only will the class be engaging, but you will also end up with students that fully grasp what you are teaching.
