Training & Course Development


Are your employees looking for training to support their development that is more than just a one-time event? Do they want a more modern, multi-channel experience?

At Dering, we offer many ways to deliver knowledge and skills to your employees, using a range of channels that allow opportunities for individualized learning or to delve deeper with group discussions.

Our goal is to help you build a customized learning path with topics suited for a specific role, delivered in multiple ways, which create an overall engaging experience.

Contact us if you want to give your training programs a boost. We offer a variety of options to create such an experience.

Leadership Development Programs

Interested in seeing programs that are already blended in a way to deliver content via multiple channels?

Instructor-Led Training

We design and deliver courses to meet your specific organizational needs through custom-built workshops that are challenging and engaging. And while we can source and customize almost any content topics for you, we also deliver hundreds of workshops annually from our catalog of over 25 courses focusing on interpersonal skills, leadership, and management topics.

Virtual Classroom Training

Powered by virtual meeting and training platforms such as Zoom®, Dering’s Virtual Classroom provides adult learners with a personal and engaging learning experience from a distance. We customize our content to fit each client’s needs, with experienced facilitators that guide each session.

Train-the-Trainer Facilitation Skills

Do you have someone on the team who really knows how to do the job but cannot seem to train others? We can prepare your own trainers to keep the same, high quality training alive. Our train-the-trainer program focuses on facilitation skills and how to educate others, using sound adult learning principles.

Dering OnDemand

We understand that now, more than ever, training and learning opportunities need to be available to meet your specific needs. Dering OnDemand does just that. Dering OnDemand blends our business and leadership curriculum with an easy-to-use online platform. This allows learners more flexibility in sharpening their skills.

Additionally, it allows you to choose the right amount of Dering expertise and experience to support your learning. With Dering OnDemand, blended approaches are now at your fingertips.


Our custom e-learning solutions provide on-demand training on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device, all at the learner’s convenience. We build courses to client specifications, using state-of-the-art e-Learning technologies. While our online courses can be launched through any webpage, they can also be designed for your learning management system to track and report on key metrics.


How do you know if a training program meets its objectives? Does it have the impact and outcomes you hoped it would? We help organizations assess the impact of training and make critical adjustments in content, instruction, and delivery methods. Using both quantitative and qualitative feedback, we help clients understand learners’ reactions to training and the degree of knowledge transfer, as well as behavioral changes and their impact.
