Trainer Guideline (37kb) - This document provides suggested strategies, tactics and tips for those who will be presenting the material contained in the C&S Training Modules.
Training Modules
Shown below are the C&S Training Modules that were presented at the April 12-14, 2002 Leadership Training Conference. These modules are being made available for use in face-to-face training of groups, or for individual self-training. The sub-modules will be periodically updated, as needed; the date of the current sub-modules are shown below.

To assist committees in tracking the training accomplished for the committee and its subordinate groups, a sample tracking form in an excel file is provided. Committees may use the form as is, modify it to suit the committee's needs or use some other means of tracking.

Questions or comments regarding the content of the modules should be addressed to the Chair or ASME Staff contact for the pertinent committee.
