Recommend two separate docs:

(1) Training manual - no slides
(2) Slide deck

Training develops slide deck, you give it once-over for editorial (or PDF shared reviews with larger team as appropriate).

You work with training to develop Training manual -- they provide the info, you develop the doc, PDF shared reviews to larger team, etc. (Or alternate collaborative review method as appropriate.)

In classes, the student uses the Training manual, and the instructor works from the projected slides. The student can be provided hardcopy/ecopy of the slides or a relevant subset of the deck.

You may also be asked to develop an Instructor's manual depending on the topic/industry/company, etc.

The good news is that we had special training for Tech docs and Training to prepare a customer-facing doc and a deck of slides about a complex issue. Although the slides would cover a subset to fit actual training sessions, the subset is large enough for us to consider avoiding duplication of effort between the departments. Is there a way to avoid such duplication and work in parallel?
