The Training Manager’s Yearbook
From AP Information Services
The Training Manager’s Yearbook grows every year and now has a total of 7,500 organisations listed in its first half with full details of all individuals responsible for training. And it lists information on these organisations’ training budgets – an activity that has a great “anorak” quality for readers who want to check up on their peers.
The book is now part of an online service listing suppliers and advisers but also features its own section of training course providers.
It does the provider information well but I found mistakes in some of the job titles and addresses of those responsible for training.
