Include speaker notes in the notes section of your slides to expand and fully explain the ideas presented on each slide.

·         What are the typical steps in the training process in your organization?

·         How are your training efforts evaluated for effectiveness and efficiency?

Present your findings as a 1-2 page Word document formatted in APA style.


Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:

2.     ABSTRACT. A summary of your paper…not an introduction. Begin writing in third person voice.

The type face should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics except as required for APA level headings and references.

4.     REFERENCE PAGE.  References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final page of your paper. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hang indention, italics, and upper and lower case usage as appropriate for the type of resource used.
