The primary requirement to be a soft skills trainer is good communication skills and loads of self confidence. If you have these, then focus on those topics that you are familiar with, confident about, passionate about or have a good grounding in. Keep updating yourself by reading extensively and start outlining the broad course contents keeping in mind the type of audience you are likely to address. In particular pay attention to the type of exercise, examples, activities that you will use during the program to reinforce a point or make the learning relevant.
Ideally take a few sessions if you have no corporate training experience for post graduate students in colleges or for social service clubs like Lions and Rotary's so that you gain in experience and also can fie tune your material. Once you are confident, approach a few corporates and the first few training programs are vital for future reference and for your own confidence.
If possible attend a Train The Trainers (TTT) program and also be a participant in a corporate training program so that you have a better understanding of how the sessions are conducted.
