- Jul 27, 2009the problem I have with Trainer's EDGE is that it assumes you already know all the presentation techniques and does not include the basics of "how to" for them. New trainers don't know them, because they have never had to use them.
I realize everything is power point now, but what if you have no computer, or your power goes out? you need the presentation techniques for plan B in training. It also isn't as boring as watching power point presentations all day. You can put a little of yourself in the training.

While I am not on the national group responsible for the writing / re-writing of the Trainer's EDGE and other train-the-trainer syllabi, I do know members of the team. I have exchanged emails with the team and they have encouraged me to use the Trainer's EDGE as a replacement to TDC until the material is re-written. I like the Trainer's EDGE and I will follow this advice even if it is not (yet) the official position.
> I am confused about TDC and Trainer's EDGE. When the EDGE syllabus first came out, I read the introduction where it mentions that this replaces TDC for WB and NYLT staffs. I interpreted this to mean that it is in addition to TDC, but it seems that others interpret it to mean that TDC is now dead and has been replaced by EDGE.
