    The training that you then provide will serve as a starting point and guide for their learning , but learners are still going to have to take responsibility for their own skill-building.   Well, no…but some trainers seem to think so. In the age of “awareness level training” and “click next to continue” courses designed to check a box or meet regulatory requirements, we risk missing out on opportunities to really let learning happen. Awareness may be necessary, but it’s just the beginning. If your training program begins and ends with “awareness,” you’re missing the boat.
