What participants said about the course:

  • "I wish this course was offered before I had an intern! Very useful tools and I look forward to putting them to use in the near future."
  • "I have a much better idea of how to write a job description and conduct an interview in a way that will help communicate my expectations to my potential trainees."
  • "I plan to rely on the framework and strategies that were taught and practiced during the TRAIN-UP course. The seven steps of an effective mentor were excellent for me to refer back to and have as core concepts that I can remind myself of regularly."
