Advice on becoming a trainer


Following over ten years in the Live Event and Communication arena I want to use my knowledge and expertise to move over into training. Training of staff and coaching of clients to communicate clearly and effectively has always been part of my work. Having read various documents detailing certification and study I want to investigate whether there is a means whereby I can begin to work alongside experienced trainers and gain more experience.

I would welcome any advice and help with achieving this transition.

  1. good luck
    Hello Mark, I made the move into training about 6 years ago. I was fortunate enough to be coached by my manager and I also completed the Certificate In Training Practice (CIPD). The certificate is very practical and is not necessarily just for those currently in a training role. By completing the certificate you should be able to assess if you wish to continue your transition into training. Alternatively, have you considered making some internal networks where you currently work to job shadow the people who carry out training? Good luck and enjoy your new role

  2. Do associate work

    Would certainly recommend looking at a qualification, CTP being one. A route into the sector is to do associate work for other training companies. Doesn’t pay as well but can give you some bread and butter work whilst building up your experience and portfolio. A lot of the opportunities on TrainerBase are for such work; have you looked??
