As you can see, a great deal of preparation takes place long before the actual training begins. Trainers must plan for the location of training, the room layout or learn virtual tools, audience needs, handouts and presentation media, and myriad other details that must all be arranged in advance. In addition to working out the implementation details of training, the trainer must prepare and rehearse for the presentation. Even the best possible training design can result in failure if not properly implemented and skillfully presented. Make sure to practice your training before you start recording it. Review and re-record your training as needed. It may take more than one attempt.
