The course you're describing is sometimes referred to as a "train-the-trainer" course. Instructors are being taught methods of teaching. Aufbau could mean advanced in the sense of developing advanced skills. The instructors would be building on the skills the students already have. But Aufbau can also mean preparatory in the sense of getting the students ready for advanced training. Pre-schools, such as kindergartens, get kids ready for elementary school. So Aufbau could mean preparatory.
