The BMINZ Train The Trainer Course

Training co workers is a skill that is developed. Training is often not given priority and tends to be delivered by some that may know the content but are not skilled in training. The result is a workforce that learns bad habits, short-cuts, and who do not understand the reason why workplace knowledge is important. Training your best workers to understand the expertise of training others means that you will always have a plan to keep knowledge within the business. Creating a secondary expert workforce is also a key risk minimisation strategy.

It is important that trainers have two separate skill sets and knowledge. Firstly they need to know the subject they are training. Secondly, they need to know how to transfer that information to the trainees so they clearly understand, are able to put into practice, and change behaviour.
