What are the product developer's professional backgrounds?
Our materials are developed by a certified Project Management Professional (PMP®), Pennsylvania, USA; Certified Corporate Trainer (CCT), Canada; and Certified Business Professional (CBP), Florida, USA who has spent 10,000+ hours of training and coaching, 20,000+ hours in Research and Material development.

How do you keep your prices so LOW?
Our mission is to offer top quality training materials at affordable prices to help them invest more time in training. Our set up allows us to sell at these low prices because we minimize our overhead costs and operate with a small, efficient business team. We offer the best price possible for our customers and in turn, trainers buy more of our products and develop their courses accordingly.
Why should I buy the presentations when I can create them myself?
Because doing the presentation yourself will cost you more! Are you surprised? OK, let's do the math: when you work on developing a 200-slide presentation, for example, how long would that take you? A developer will need around 1-3 hours to research the content of 1 slide (sometimes it could take longer, if you are introducing a new theme), which adds up to a minimum of 200 hours to complete the entire presentation! The average rate for business training or consultation services in the market varies from $80 - $120 per hour. Therefore, you will save a minimum of $16,000 per presentation (assuming a 200-slide presentation at an hourly consulting rate of $80). A 200-slide presentation will only cost you $29.99 with TRAINER'S BOX with a money-back guarantee!
How do I customize my presentation?
You simply open your presentation with Microsoft PowerPoint and make all the necessary edits or customizations you desire. There is a space included for you to enter your name or business. You can also add a logo in the header or footer of the presentation by manually clicking on them and saving any changes.
Why is the Agenda slide blank in my presentation ?
It's intentionally left blank for you to customize it every time you use this presentation for a new training session. All you need to do is to customize the pages, then you can freely add or remove slides as you please (the default is 6 pages), then add the sections you plan to teach per day and the time scheduled.
I accidentally erased some parts of my presentations and forgot to save a backup copy - what do i do?
Just send to us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send to you the presentation you purchased again within 24 hours.

What are the management tools?
These are ready-made and tested management tools or documents describing each step required to run a professional training event. These cover planning for training events, executing training events, and monitoring and controlling training events. Each process has a general description and the reason the process is needed, process outcomes, pitfalls you need to avoid and a flowchart of the process itself. The flowchart is a simple set of steps describing the sequence of major tasks to follow. We also have tips describing the process steps and lessons on how to conduct the process in the most efficient and effective way. You can check out management packets content by visiting this link: http://www.trainersbox.net/management-packets.html
Can I use your processes alongside external advertising processes, or do they only work separately?
Our processes should work alongside yours. Any standard process should do the same. In the case where you need to customize or re-brand your purchased processes, we can send to you a customizable version.
Are the templates required in the process offered together as a bundle?
Unfortunately not. We are offering the templates separately because we want you to buy just what you need. However, after we received a suggestion from a trainer to bundle each process with all the templates involved, we now offer them at a discounted price.
My company has 10 full-time employees and 30 part-time trainers. Would your management packets be suitable?
Our management packets are optimized for:
a. Companies with less than 50 employees (if you have more full timers than that then we would strongly recommend an application)
b. Individual trainers
What does the best price guarantee mean?
It means that we offer the same quality of products as other websites, but at a much lower price. If you find a product similar to ours sold at a lower price in any other online shop, we will discount our product to 5% less than that price.

Do I have to study additional material in order to teach the course?
Unfortunately we do not. We understand your time constraints when running a business. The workbook is written much like a book and we recommend that you read the workbook first to familiarize yourself with the content. You can then move on to the trainer’s notes and learn more about what to cover and how to cover it at each stage. Our 'Trainer the trainer Get prepared in 30 Minutes Video Series' will help you do the job and maybe add a few more hours if you want to browse case studies and read trending articles we offer you on the subject.
How much time should I spend preparing the training materials?
This highly depends on your expertise and overall familiarity with the subject. In general, you may need to spend a few days reading and rehearsing the training content before delivering the course. We offer a 'Train the Trainer' Preparation Video Series to get you prepared in 2 to 4 hours!
Do the materials clearly state additional resources that may be required to prepare and run the course?
Each course comes with a recommended list of reading which you can use to study about the course topic or find more content and resources to cover during the course.
