ATDeP will cater a number of trainees that qualified and passionate enough to be trained as trainers. The participants would come volunteerily or nominated after the completion of AKEPT Compentency & Enhancement Programme (ACEP). Hence, the trainees will then be polished and groomed in delivering training, providing positive feedback to create an atmosphere of acceptance and approval, facilitating participation and engagement in large and small groups, coaching to close the gap between desired performance and actual performance and eventually, creating measurable impact by linking concepts with organizational objectives.


The programme will take place in four (4) consecutive phases with miniature environment of nearly one-to-one coaching from the Master Trainer in ensuring eight (8) Trainer’s Core-competencies to be well developed. Among the competencies are :
