Instructional Methodology:

DeMuro Enterprises, LLC views its responsibility as the relevant transfer of practical knowledge. Its approach to training is to inform and instruct while supplying both theoretical and applicable performance-centered knowledge for practical understanding.  All training sessions presented by DeMuro Enterprises, LLC provide a consistent level of knowledge and understanding to all attending students. Adjunct instructors and Research Sources experienced in the topic are used as applicable and/or regularly accessed for topic updating.


There are basically three types of instructional development offered to clients. The first is basic training sessions that can provide applicable awareness on specific issues and concerns. The second is founded in customization for agency specific training. It is developed for organizational requirement and need. The third is a Train-the-Trainer session that can aid a cadre of experienced instructors when developing curricula for agency need. All Train-the-Trainer sessions incorporate lesson plan development into the instruction to provide a topic-applicable curriculum for immediate use. However, all sessions developed are designed to provide awareness and performance-centered knowledge. The three instructional approaches outlined employ a variety of methods to efficiently transfer performance-centered learning in the time allotted. Methods will range from interactive lecture and assessment of conceptual scenarios, to Socratic inquiry and realistic in-class and after-class analysis. In effect, all training supplied by DeMuro Enterprises, LLC is focused on a realistic understanding by the student of any topic presented.
