OK everyone! Have just a moment now so I will explain TTT---
T = Train
T = The
T = Trainer
This course has been (at least in the past) an annual course put on in
councils, cluster councils, areas, and region levels to train those who
wish to train others.
1. I attended the "TTT" at the Florida Sea Base for specifically invited
trainers throughout the country in 1982.
At this course we received trainers' info that was at a very intense level,
very specialized to teaching and instructing. It was also where we
received (the ink was probably still wet at the time) the then new version
of the C.S. training course for leaders.
2. Area 2 of the non defunct East Central Region, hosted annual "TTT"
course with staffs from all over the area. I served as chairman for the
Area 2 Train the Trainers' course in March 1978 at Rockford College. The
course was a weekend long, lots of fun and fellwship. The participants in
our course got to prepare a short presentation; and give the presentation;
-- all on camera. Needless to say, with a video camera pointing at them,
no one REALLY had to tell anyone where they went wrong in the physical
presentations. We all saw our failures.
3. Cluseter councils - I have been on staff for numbers of cluster council
course, and co-chaired one with Northwest Suburban Council. At this level
we try to train our trainers NOT to lecture, give speeches, etc., but to
train with active hands on presentations; varied visual aids and
You all are probably right, there probably are no longer any TTT courses
being given, as they involved a large staff of quite qualified presentors
in order to do the job right, and was a 9am - 4pm. An all day course.
I still do have a manual and would be happy to mail you a copy if you wish,
just e-mail me direct at email@example.com.
