Cascade training is providing training a individuals who in turn provide the same training to others.
Employees from different departments of a company or from different companies may attend a training course then each one of them goes back to his or her department and provides the same training course to other employees in his/her department or company.
- Provides a way to train a large number of people quickly
- Spreads skills and knowledge quickly
- Saves training costs
- The original training course must be designed with the intention of having it cascaded later on. That way the course must be clearly defined with all its activities clearly documented.
- Cascade training works best with training courses that aim more at knowledge transfer rather than changing behaviors, attitudes or perceptions or equipping participants with new skills.
