Dear all,
I have just come across this post grad degree from ICFAI namely PG Diploma in training and development. Does anyone know the merit of this program. I am considering doing it and was wondering if I should.
I am interested in becoming a corporate trainer and would really appreciate some guidance. I have 1.5 years of training experience
DO let me know if anyone knows the merits of this course.
Thank you

Dear Veera
Its not a post graduate "Degree:, its a PG Diploma !!! And there is a big difference in both.
If you are looking for a PG Degree in T&D, then I am sure you must be having some prior background in T&D or basic qualifications, and hence you want to peruse a advance ceritficatin. Am I correct ? Do please brief about yourself I am sure I will be able to guide you.

Hi Sajid,
I meant PG Diploma from ICFAI. As mentioned I have 1.5 years experience in Communication training. I would like to make a career in corporate training. I've been searching for a job in training for the past 1 month however I've not got anything suitable.
I would like to do a course that would enhance my knowledge in training. Hence was wondering if this program from ICFAI was beneficial or not.
Any advice on what should be my next step?

Hi rooma,
I understand that the course from ISTD is good however you need 2 years of work experience. I do not have that work experience. That's the reason why I can't look at doing the course right now.

Hi Vera,
I have done the diploma from istd, it is a good course and the two year work exp is not a mandatory requirement. They do relax on that clause. So i would recommend that you download the prospectus and send in your application. When i applied, i had only 1 yr work exp and they still considered my application.
All the best. Also after going through the subjects of the ICFAI course I feel ISTD is the better choice.

Hi Vera I agree with Shahnaz. As far as within India, ISTD is the best option. Go for it. Sajid

Dear Sajid,
Few days back I had enquired about T&D program at ICFAI, they said its 1 year course, they just provide the required material for the exam preparation. I feel, interactive classes would be better if someone wants career in T&D. I dont know whats a procedure at ISTD.

Thanks guys,
Ill check out the ISTD course however do any of you know an interactive post grad course in training? Cause of course a full time course will be better than a distance education course.
Do let me know.
Thank you.

Hi Altaf,
Well I'm currently looking for a job. I wouldn't mind doing a full time course if there is one in training & Development and is recognised.
Do let me know if you know of any such course.
Thank you
