Sharing that knowledge with those who are less experienced both reinforces what the craft professional knows and transfers that know-how to younger protégés. The important elements of a formal mentoring program are covered in this training."},{"insert":"\n\n"},{"attributes":{"color":"#777777","bold":true},"insert":"Course Objectives:"},{"insert":"\n\n"},{"attributes":{"color":"#777777","italic":true},"insert":"Learning Objective 1"},{"attributes":{"color":"#777777"},"insert":" - Define coaching and mentoring and describe an effective mentor."},{"insert":"\n"},{"attributes":{"color":"#777777"},"insert":"   a.
