  • Determine appropriate level and modes of training for each business role including live instructor-led, virtual recordings, micro-learnings, and simulations
  • Identify individual course objectives
  • Develop templates for courses
  • Develop course outlines per curriculum
  • Develop Training Materials such as Job Aids and Quick Reference Guides
  • Review with functional area team
