The best times for providing a recap are:

  1. At the end of a training session
  2. Right before giving a break
  3. At the end of a training segment before moving to another topic.


Provide a summary of the most important points that have just been covered.

  1. A recap can be done by the trainer himself or herself
  2. A recap can be done by eliciting summary points from participants themselves.


  • Recaps help in absorption and retention of information making concepts sink in.
  • Eliciting summary points from participants makes the recap even more interactive and thus more engaging for participants.
