Workshops & Training
What are the Characteristics of Workshops and Training Sessions?
Workshops and/or training sessions are characterized as longer, more focused seminars through which participants can interact with experts and gain invaluable information, perspective, and knowledge. Generally, a workshop or training session is designed around a specific topic area, and often utilized to educate members on new techniques, policies, and products. Many groups require a certain number of hours or sessions for members to remain certified or to advance to a higher level of accreditation. With a greater opportunity for the exchange of ideas, as well as group participation, workshops are valued for their stimulating nature and as an efficient way to learn new concepts.
