Create the ultimate customer-centric culture, by equipping trainers within your organisation with the skills and ‘know-how’ to transfer their Customer Experience (CX) knowledge to their colleagues.

Our SETA-accredited Train-the-Trainer programme is a high-impact practical application course held over nine days (not all consecutive) designed to nurture both personal and professional staff development. The content draws from more than 26 years’ combined CX experience and international best practice, covering two-unit standards in the Services SETA.

Ideal for experienced or novice trainers and facilitators, as well as both junior and middle management.


CX vs CS: How well do your staff understand the difference?

Focusing on your customers’ experience or CX, is so much more than adding a smile to your service. It’s all about putting yourself in your customers’ shoes and coming to grips with how they experience every interaction with your organisation, product, or service.

The CX gift that keeps on giving

By teaching your in-house trainers how to skilfully pass on their CX knowledge to their colleagues, your staff will benefit from this training on an on-going basis.

Developed, tailored and fine-tuned over many years

nlightencx’s Train-the-Trainer programme has seen companies’ CX performance improve in leaps and bounds, resulting in higher levels of client satisfaction. By training up your facilitators, they will learn to:

  • Understand and identify customer touch points through skilful use of customer journey mapping

Our clients’ experience


"Bidvest have a very good relationship with nlightencx. They developed the content of the programme for Bidvest which was bespoke for our particular requirements. The way it was communicated in terms of the initial proposal and then how it was delivered was very aligned to what we needed. Brendon was excellent at interpreting our needs. He was approachable and accessible for the duration of the project. The feedback has been great from those who have attended the programme. This is a Section 197 account and the delegates have never received anything like this before. The content has stood up to the test of many delegates."
