How your training schedule works:
Trainers usually present the same seminar in a different city for up to five consecutive days. We contract with trainers approximately four months in advance.


Our promise to you:

  • Thorough certification. Before you conduct your first SkillPath seminar, you´ll complete an intense certification process. You'll also attend two of our seminars and watch our best trainers in action. Next, using our materials, you´ll prepare an entire seminar and teach it to us at our Kansas headquarters. Our faculty trainers will help you hone your skills and teach you how to maximize your sales. This is our investment in you; there is no charge to you—we even pay your travel expenses!
  • Ongoing support. Our professional staff has extensive experience in the seminar business and they are here for you. From scheduling, to travel, to specific questions about individual seminars, we are ready to serve you.
  • Product samples. We provide complimentary product samples to all our trainers. By building your library, we build your sales—and that´s a win-win for everyone!
  • Onsite training. Enjoy the unique experience of offering tailored facilitations and experiential training solutions to our corporate on-site customers. You´ll train some of the top organizations, including Fortune 500 companies at their site. You´ll have an opportunity to earn additional compensation for customizing the training, as well as the opportunity for referral fees.

To apply:

  • Send a resume. Show us your work history, professional training and speaking background, education and membership(s) in any professional organizations.

  • Send a video. Show us your presentation style and, if you´re a computer trainer, your technical expertise. The video does not have to be professionally produced in front of a live audience—pretend your living room is a classroom, record your training and send it in. If you limit your video to 10 minutes, you can post it on YouTube (or the Web site of your choice) and send us a link. Otherwise, you can burn it to a disk and mail it to us.

If your resume and video look like a match for us, we´ll invite you to audition live for our panel. You may either audition at our office in Mission, Kansas (at your own expense), or from your own location over the Internet.
