We had similar problems. The trainers wanted the entire script
We came up with a couple of solutions.
1. We developed the trainer materials in a separate doc with a
numbering system that paralleled that of the manual and collated the
2. We left large note sections on each page and printed only on the
front. We used a "Trainer" style. The style was white for the student
manuals and black for the trainer guides.
3. We used chapter - page numbering and put all the training materials
at the back of each chapter.
4. We persuaded them that It would be easier for them to manage if we
put the training information on the PowerPoint slides with page
I hope at least one of those makes sense for your situation.
