Hi Priya,
I am also working for an MNC and i believe that i am a good presenter. For me that's my passion. What i did to pursue my passion is that I along with one of my friend who is also a working professional approached certain professional colleges so that we can impart training to their students. we had a tough time and at last we got one. Now i am very much satisfied because i do what i love. I have my job as well as i have my passion. Dont let your skills go untried .Shoot it definitely u will excel

Hai Priya!
We welcome you to the world of TRAINERS!!! to be simple i can tell you is that TRAINER is one who should be a person who can indulge others mind. i appreciate your interest in this, instead of going into various classes say like "train the trainer", you can start up your initial stage with self preparation, start handling a guest lecture or an interactive session with your juniors in the college that u completed your graduation, which will get you a platform easily, see yourself how much you can handle , select topics which you can handle your best say like self confidence, importance of communication, self realization, Truth behind Truth. Prepare a presentation . it would be more fine, any help do let me know will help you out.
Thanks and Regards

Hi Priya,
Adhithya gave the correct reply to your question. For experience you can conduct small programs and that will give you more exposure rather than any other sessions

Hi Priya:

Glad to know that you are a wannabe trainer. Here are few suggestions:

Try joining the local chapters of JCI (Junior Chamber International) and/or ISTD (Indian Society for Training and Development).

JCI is basically a training organization. You will get to meet lot of local/national/international trainers through JCI, which would change your perspective about training.

ISTD offers diploma courses in T&D. You can visit their website to find out more details.

TTT programs are good. The effectiveness of the program would depend on the institute/trainer delivering the program. You can attend one or two to get a feel. Then, you can form an opinion of your own.

No matter what you learn or which institute/organization you join, your dream to become a trainer would still be incomplete if you do not have an audience/trainees to share your learning/knowledge. You haven't mentioned what profession you are currently in. If your current profession gives you an opportunity to test your training skills, then look no further. Grab it. If it doesn't, you may have to look for other vistas.

Through JCI, ISTD, or TTT you come across other training professionals who may give you first hand info on how to sharpen your training skills. If you build your network carefully, you might as well be able to join/work under a professional trainer. This would also give you an insight on training as a career option.

For a newbie trainer, getting an audience is pretty difficult. You would require some time to establish yourself. So, it is really important that you persevere, enhance your knowledge continuously, and build your network of friends/followers. As a first step (if your current profession does not give you an opportunity for delivering training), try volunteering for some NGO, where you can deliver training.

You will find a lot of information in citehr. Just do a research. Patience is the key. Do not forget to Google. It would give lots of information, more than you can handle.

Last point - there are several online communities/forums that you can join. Books too would help you a lot.

All the best!

At the outset let me compliment you on deciding to be a trainer. A number of readers of the post have given you some excellent inputs on how to go about sharpening your training skills. I am taking the liberty of adding my suggestions for your consideration.

To be a good trainer a prerequisite is good communication skills, and in particular effective presentation and public speaking skills. However, the heart and brains of the training still remains the domain knowledge but even the most knowledgeable person would fail miserably as a trainer without effective communications skills. To further improve your communication skills find a local Toastmasters club in your city and join them.

To get the academic inputs on training you can do the course from Indian Society for Training and Development (ISTD). Alternatively you can also attend some Train The Trainer (TTT) programs offered by private institutions.

To get going, 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. I would also suggest that you attend some corporate training by professionals on topics of your interest to get a feel of how it is structured and delivered.

If you have no corporate training experience, ideally take a few sessions 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 fine 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.

I would also invite you to visit the following Inspirational and Motivational Blogs which can also assist you in improving your vocabulary and communication skills.

Hi Priya,

Somehow I got attracted towards this topic's thread and motivated to write my experience.

I am currently working into QAG (in short my responsibility are to ensure process adherence for all departments, process improvements, audits and training of QMS processes).

I happen to be introvert and shy guy till I join this totally new function after 6-8 years working into support and development and even before that for some 6 years I worked into sales which never happened to be my liking and I quit reason doing what not loved.

When I give training to our new joiners / projects team for any project management tool , it gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction than anything in my life specially when my audience gets satisfied for some complex issues/queries based on my experience.

Following are the tips I may suggest you which I feel would surely help to any one who is a trainer

1. Make your session interactive with easy example and question

2. Try to mix some humor with live situation or example to make all feel light

3. Keep ready some relevant live example with data related to your topic to put weight on your most important statement of training subject.

Wish you all the best

Thank You Sushil sir,
M enjoying this interactive sessions.
Some days before, I was also the one of them who thinks that, the company in which you are working is important but, now I feel the work what gave u satisfaction is important, So like You, I am also diverting my work profile towards my interest.
Thank you for your tips. It will be definitely useful for my future as a trainer.

Good trainers should:
Believe in and have a passion for what they are teaching.
Know their material well.
Use lots of metaphors explaining the materials
Be willing to share their personal experiences with the topic.
Have a good sense of humor about the subject and be willing to play.
Talk to not at or down to the people in the class.
Not get caught into one personís issues in the class.
Keep the class moving at a fast pace without loosing anyone.
Find a practical application in the classís personal life for the particular subject. (Customer Service and using it at home, Time management and orderliness at home. Even computerís have life issues.)
Respect everyone in the class.
Lots of group activities
Get the class to like and appreciate the subject when they leave.

Further to all the suggestions you have received - I notice you have not mentioned your current job profile.
What I would recommend is meet up with your HR or the group responsible for new employee on boarding activity and request if you could help in that activity.
Presenting to these new employees in your company on topics like Company Profile, Values, Mission and HR Policies to begin with adds value to you and will give you the confidence to stand in front of groups of people. From there (and based on feedback) you could seek a transfer into the training team.
Mean while - begin general reading on the topics you intend training on. Once you become a subject matter expert, training on that topic becomes easier. Focus on no more than 3 to 4 such topcis to train on. You can expand a year or 2 later.

Hi Priya,
I would like to introduce a training tool. It can be used as a presentation aid. Its a new tool for making presentations. Its name is PREZI. I dont know whether u have tried it or not. If u have not tried it please try it as definitely it could be a good change where the audience are bored by conventional ppts. This tool will definitely give u a good impression.

Hello Priya,
It's a good idea to become a trainer, however, training involves a lot of things. Basically and primarily you need to improve your English because trainers don't think, they know their subject like the palm of their hand. So think about it and all the best. Ellis Nathan
