Course Development

PPI provides the development of a course plan, using the Needs Assessment as a foundation.  This includes professional analysis of current training methods, training goals and needs, documentation, and testing requirements. Complete course design and development for both computer-based courses and instructor-led courses can be followed by implementation using PPI instructors. Course evaluation and revision are also integral parts of the process, allowing a dynamic course that maintains its focus on transferring knowledge to the trainee or user.

Needs Assessment

A Training Needs Assessment will provide an objective observation of current training, training goals, and recommendations for course development or revision.  Experienced Workforce Development Educators will identify key areas where an improvement in training will positively effect employee productivity and improve job performance.

Trained and experienced Workforce Education and Development curriculum development specialists review current training methods, results, and documentation to determine the best way to meet training goals.  Identification of training needs will specify course requirements on a topical level, including:

  • Instructional methods
  • Target audience identification
  • Terminal objective definition
  • Basic content organization recommendations
  • Instructor/trainee material requirements
  • Recommended curriculum delivery mediums
  • Estimated training time requirements
  • Estimated instructor/trainee preparation requirements.

Instructional Program Management

When there is a training need that is more comprehensive than a single course, PPI can design an Instructional Program divided into courses and delivered over the required medium that best fits your company's needs.
