Actually, when I first began doing training documentation, I was having a
discussion (offline) with someone about training, who did send me a pdf of a
document as a sample. It wasn't a template that I could actually use, but it
did provide an example of one way I could structure such a document. I then
evaluated the structure and design based on my users' needs, compared it to
other samples I located on the web, and came up with a suitable design for
my purposes.

I think newbies who are asking for "templates" are most likely looking for a
place to start, or get a general idea of what others have done, not someone
else to do their work. (Some may be lazy, but most probably just need a
nudge in the right direction.)
