Hi Anisha

First of all congratulations on choosing Training as a career option.

I presume you have some expertise in the subjects that you propose to take the training in. It would be very beneficial if you attend a Train The Trainer program from a good training institute before you take up assignments.

In training the emphasis is on making the learning as practical as possible and hence the programs must incorporate lots of activities be it games, case studies, demonstrations etc. Get participants involved in the program. Do not make a training session a lecture where the trainer speaks and the participants only listen.

Read extensively on the topic. Plan a day long schedule. Write down the training objectives and how the learning from the training can be applied by the participants. For all activities that supplement the program ensure you are prepared for the debriefing and learning points from the activity.

I would also urge you to attend a couple of training programs conducted by other experts and you will learn from their styles, contents and expertise.

Best Wishes

chhagan meena.

I just want to add to what Act has advised I noticed while working in the field of training & development that most important thing a training recipient look at when looking for training is the following:

•The Main objective of the training course

•What is the training content

•What is the trainee going to learn from the program delivered

•What are the sills the trainees is going to develop

•How much of the knowledge obtaining during the training session is going to be applicable to the learning environment

•And the organization paying for the trainee to attend this program would like to see Return On Investment or they will not deal with you again.

So when you running a training session make sure that

•The information your trying to communicate can be applied in real life.

•You have enough theoretic evidence like reports & researches you back up what you say.

•Make your training session more dynamic i.e. let trainees interact don’t make it as a lecture

•Go with a mind set that your transferring knowledge and your also going to learn something from your trainees

1st of All I am thankful to Anisha for raising this Question. Secondly to Mr. B Jacob, Mr. M R S Sastry & Mr. Mohnan for their generous contributions.
Hi Anisha,

At the outset, it's good to know the choice you have made. It's indeed challenging, as i am also a tariner. I encounter a lot of challenges everyday during my training sessions. Each day is an experience of its kind, and i am really enjoying it.

Well, its not clear from your message what kind of training that you are into, and who is your target audience. The training delivery would certainly depend on the the target audience, there rank and profile etc. (Such as corporate executives, students etc)I agree with most of them to attend a train the trainer programme, as i have myself attended one. Apart from all this here are a few things that you need to keep in mind.

1. On the first session, needless to say, that you need to introduce yourself, and run through the contents of the programme. Highlight the benefits of the programme, and also how it value adds the person for his livelyhood.

2. Then you need to use the icebreakers to get the introduction of the target group. Icebreakers are the one which attempts to break the initial hesitation between yourself and the target group. I shall be able to assist you with some specific icebreakers required for the purpose. Also set the ground rules, such as punctuality, dresscode, discipline, use of mobilephones etc as the case may be.

Through the icebraeking method of introduction, you will be able to almost remember everbody's name, which is vital for any trainer.

3. Always do not jump into the topic in the very first session. Know each other better in a fun way.(There are many ways of doing it). Get to know about there goals ambitions in life etc.

4. Your delivery methodology must be of a trainer and not as a teacher (Teachers adapt Instructor led methodogy). You are training them and not instructing them. Eg. If i provide you a book on how to drive a car, will you be able drive after reading throgh the book. What makes a good driver is the training from the driving school, wherein the school provides you a hands on experience. He does not teach you theoritically.

5. Introduce about the concepts on the topic, and see how you can provide a practical approach for the same. Always try to derive from the group. Do not provide all the knowledge by yourself, and finally arrive at how close were they from the answer or how far. This will ensure a lot of interaction from the group.

6. Use games, drills, roleplays, video clippings, demonstrations, group discussions etc which makes the sessions very lively. Also quote a lot of industry examples.

7. Keep a tab on the bodylanguage, there behaviour, the interest to learn, etc, and accordingly shoot them questions. Make them come on the stage and discuss the about topic, etc.

8. Start the next session by making someone summarize the previous session, about the assignments if you have given any.

Let me know your interest to know more, and i shall keep posting you accordingly.

Warm Regards,

Raghavendra P. Girimaji
