Train the Trainer is More than Standing in Front of a Crowd
The need for skilled trainers continues to grow as America's workforce meets the challenges of changing technology and information. Acquiring new knowledge and skills is critical to your job success and ongoing professional development.
Some workers may be able to walk onto a job and get their hands around it immediately, but for most new employees, training is necessary. That is why trainers are important! It is the trainer's job to ensure that employees have the knowledge, ability and confidence to tackle their new job.
It is important to realize that any trainer needs two separate sets of skills and knowledge. First, they need to know the topic they are teaching (subject matter expertise). Second, they need to know how to transfer that information to the student (instructional expertise).
Great Training leads to the following positive results:
• employees perform their jobs with more confidence
• they learn more quickly
• they work more accurately
• they get along better with other employees
• they're more capable of training other employees
• they work better in teams
• since things are easier for them at work, they have more job satisfaction; and they are more likely to stick with the job longer
• they are much more likely than other employees in the same position to master their job well enough to be promoted later
When a trainer stands in front of a crowd or is working one-on-one, it is their responsibility to make sure that the right information is shared with the proper methods. Attending a Train the Trainer certification workshop such as PrepMasters' Be A Great Trainer workshop can help with this. By using different techniques to meet the group and individual needs, trainers with the Train the Trainer certification ensure that the proper message is conveyed to their listeners so that they are well trained for their position. It may take a lot of creativity, patience and fortitude, but that is what makes the Train the Trainer participants so qualified to train.
In a Train the Trainer course, you:
• work on overcoming the 10 most common student complaints
• understand how body language affects a presentation
• practice presentations with people that are there to help you improve
and much more!
The Train the Trainer certification is not a goal, it's a result. The goal is to become the best trainer you can be! Next time you have an individual or group to train, think about what your objectives really are. If they are to train these individuals so they can be the best, then you have to use your skills to meet their needs, not just stand up and start talking!
