The presentation deals with how well you are prepared to teach and how well you deliver the
material. While personal characteristics will vary between instructors, everyone can use several
tools of the trade to enhance the effectiveness of the lesson. The evaluator will judge your

command-designated authority for your personalization.
Classroom And Materials Are Ready For Training
m Make sure the classroom is physically ready for the student to receive training; that is,
seating arrangements are adequate; training equipment is in good working condition and
available as required; materials such as transparencies, slides, and charts are accurate and
in good working condition.
Information Technically Accurate
m Ensure the technical accuracy of information you present. Only an evaluator who is a
subject matter expert in the area of instruction will complete this category.
Cover Major Discussion Points

taught with the present material, or link the present material with what will be taught
