Bill Williams Started The Discussion:
Training and OD Professionals,

I am curious to know how much a freelance training professional typically charges in the Indian market (in approximate $US terms). Most of my training experience has been in Australia where a freelance high school teacher can earn up to $US200 per day and management trainers hired by big brand training organisations typically get paid about $US800 per day ( charged out at $US2000 per day to customers!)

Here in Vietnam where I am now based international trainers work for between $US200 - $400 and are charged by reputable international corporate training providers at $US600- $1200.

Of course there are plenty of people who work for less and a few who work for more. The rates of described above would usually require a Masters degree and the ability to make training clients want the trainer again. For OD facilitators with sound group process consultation skills you can probably add 30 - 50% to the above figures.

So what are the indicative numbers in India? I would be very grateful for any responses to this question?

Thank you for considering the question.

I am Jo from Bangalore. I can be contacted on or +919448270474
The freelance trainer fee per day varies from US$ 300 to 700 or more based on experience, target audience etc.
Best wishes,
Thanks Jo, You were the only person who bothered to reply to this question. I wonder why? Best regards, Bill

Hi friends

I strongly disagree with CV.

Here the average cost is (I mean the trainer fee) around 400 US dollars.

Without which no one will conduct a training.

If it is an out bound or MDP or EDP it will vary from 800 USD and above.

This is what I am experiencing.

Bill, you can check this out.
