Explain the need for training and development in this scenario. 2. Describe the purpose of the training plan. Training Program Objectives 3. Describe the training program objectives. Skills Gaps 4. Identify four safety skills gaps of roofing supervisors by comparing the attached “Injury and Illness Incident Report” and the attached “Position Description for Roofing Supervisor.” Learning Objectives 5. Write a learning objective (for supervisors) for each of the four skills gaps identified in part A4. Behavior Changes as a Result of Training 6. Describe a desired behavior change that supervisors will demonstrate as a result of the training they receive for each of the four learning objectives identified in part A5. Program Design 7.

Explain how each learning objective from part A5 will be evaluated after training using Kirkpatrick’s level 2 or level 3 method. 14. Describe two specific examples of supervisor behavior that would prove that training transfer has occurred. B.
