Train The Trainer Workshop


Training is an integral part of human resources function and many of us HR professional really want to enter into the field of training. However, becoming a trainer is not a cakewalk. You should possess excellent communication skills, excellent presentation skills and wider knowledge. With this you should also have patience, highly focused. Alongwith this you should also know how to handle different function of training perfectly.
I often come across the advertisement that Train the Trainer programme in 1 days, 2 days, 3 days etc. (I prefer not to take name of such institutes)

Ridiculous. I do not believe that in one or 2 days you can be a trainer. It takes years to gather the knowledge and to train on how to delivery the training it requires good amount of training.

Today while doing researching come across through IGNOU's train the trainer programme.
When I went through duration and schedule, I found it worth. I suggest this one over other advertised train the trainer programme.
