If you’d rather develop your own training but need a little bit of guidance, try a Training Starter like this one for developing “Objectives that Work”. The meat of the training – called the Training Middle – instructs you to gather participant input, lead activities, and convey important points to the group. The opening and closing are left blank, resulting in a framework that can help you organize your thoughts while keeping in mind the principles of effective trainings.
The Training Starter templates can be downloaded as PDFs or as Microsoft Word documents, which means you can edit the document directly and add your own ideas to fill in the existing framework. It is easy to extend or shorten the training to your needs, too.
