What or who are you arguing against? Nobody ever said PowerPoint equaled
training. The OP wanted to know what kind of handouts would be good to use
with training.

Slide show presentations are very popular for training and other
presentations. What effective trainer would want to avoid a graphic
presentation in training when it is appropriate and feasible? None.

Some people are visual learners, some people are kinesthetic learners, and
some people are auditory learners. An effective trainer will produce a
presentation that satisfies all forms of learning. Usually this means a
slide show, handouts that people can read and write on, and a spoken

PowerPoint is a tool that can facilitate all aspects of training. It
certainly does not replace training. Who would even make that suggestion?
PowerPoint is also not the only tool used in training and its use does not
imply that no other training tool will be used. It is one tool.
