Webinar Description

Language: English

In this webinar the Scandinavian duo Eva and Emelie (Carpe Momentum) delve into teaching people teaching animals! To develop competent, confident and creative animal trainers, we need to be as good teachers for the human part of the team as for the non-human part.  Being a good teacher means includes goals and goal setting, how to set up for success, how to develop independence and how to work with groups, as well as building vital trainer skills such as mechanics, planning and more. Whether you teach group lessons, give private lessons, train with friends or work on your own, this webinar will help you set up for successful learning for the human side of animal training.
