Hi Everyone, I am a MBA ( HR ) and I have a total experience of 4 yrs in recruitment I am looking to change my field to something in training as I understand that my interest and my potential are more towards training. I would like to know from this forum if anyone can suggest consultants/firms in Bangalore which can give me initial training to be a trainer and work with them to gain experience in the same. Looking forward to some positive response.

Dear Ramya,
Training requires subject matter expertise. Subject matter expertise comes with experience.
In corporate training, participants have varied background. At times they are experts of their own field. However, they attend your training class assuming you are the expert of that subject.
With your 4 years in recruitment field, please find out you are expert of what field. Once you satisfy yourself, you can enter into this field.

Dear Ramya,

What is your understanding of soft skill training? If you wish to impart training on some skills, ask question to your self do I have those skills in me? If yes then on a scale of 10 what is my level?

However, this could be your perception.

You need to repeat this exercise from your friends/superior also so as to have accurate understanding about your competencies.

When you map the shortfall of the skills, then ask question to yourself what job should I take so as to put on test your skills. Operations staff in general have to put on use most of the skills, next category is Customer Service staff. If not either of these then take up job in marketing or sales or HR.

I recommend doing this because as a trainer you need to be different from some management book or CD. How much it cost to go to Gangaram and buy some book or CD? As a trainer what is going to be your distinguishing factor? Personal experience is the best distinguishing factor.

In the meantime attend as many public workshops as possible. To be a successful trainer, you need to have exposure of at least 10 trainers. This will give you complete understanding of the training process, delivery style and so on.

Lastly, do some train the trainer course.

At times you will have very intelligent participants. Their take off level is very high. Handling them is a big challenge. I have seen hollow trainers being ripped apart in no time. This is where your personal experiences are very important because nobody can snatch them away from you.

dear friends,
well,mr.Dinesh has put it rightly.I am also a triner.Can we give something which we dont possess?No.Training needs lot of hard work .And, we should know whether we have a passion for that.That burning and authentinc desire to excel directs you to acquire required skills t.Imoportantly, we should have SWOT ANALYSIS.Ex,you want 2present on interpersonal skills.first think of INTRAPERSONAL SKILLS.Ten you should excel and know imprtance of nonverbal skills.listening skills alsoI have seen lot of speakers blaming the participants.It is not enough if we possess knwledge and skills.Because it only tells WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO.What we need is ATTITUDE AND RIGHT ATTITUDE THAT TELLS YOU WANT TO DO.That "want" is aburnig desre and passion

Hi Parvez,

That's great to hear that you're looking to enhance your skills as a corporate trainer Here are some steps you can take to get started:

Identify Your Goals and Areas of Interest:
Determine which aspects of corporate training interest you the most. This could include topics like leadership development, communication skills, team building, or specific industry-related training.

Research Online Courses and Workshops:
Look for reputable online courses or workshops that specialize in corporate training. Consider platforms like Coursera, LinkedIn Learning, Udemy, and Skillshare. Search for courses that align with your interests and career goals

Consider Accredited Programs:
Some universities and institutions offer accredited programs in corporate training. Look for programs that provide certifications or diplomas in the field.
Networking and Professional Associations:

Join professional associations related to corporate training.
This will not only provide opportunities for networking but also give you access to resources and information about training programs.

Practical Experience:
Apply your learnings in real-world scenarios. Offer to conduct training sessions in your current NGO role, if possible, or seek out opportunities to volunteer or work part-time as a trainer.

Attend Workshops and Seminars:
Participate in workshops and seminars focused on corporate training. These events can provide valuable insights, networking opportunities, and exposure to industry trends.

Stay Updated with Industry Trends:
Read books, articles, and blogs related to corporate training. Staying up-to-date with industry trends and best practices is crucial for success.
Practice Communication and Presentation Skills:

Effective communication and presentation skills are fundamental for a corporate trainer. Consider enrolling in courses or workshops specifically focused on improving these skills.

Feedback and Continuous Improvement:
Seek feedback from participants after your training sessions. Use this feedback to make improvements and refine your approach.
Build a Portfolio:

Document your training experiences, certifications, and any relevant projects you've worked on. This will serve as a valuable resource when applying for future positions.

Consider Professional Certifications:
Investigate if there are any industry-recognized certifications in corporate training that align with your goals. These certifications can provide a structured and recognized path for skill development.

Practice Patience and Persistence:
Building a career in corporate training takes time. Be patient, stay committed to learning, and continue to seek out opportunities for growth.

You may note there that it's not just about completing a course, but also about applying what you've learned and gaining practical experience. This will help you develop a strong foundation and excel in your role as a corporate trainer.
