Dear Senior,
I am working as Product and Behavioural Trainer for a NMC since last 3 years. My Job Profile has been to train users on the exsiting product and on Behavioural Topics for West Region ie Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa.
There has been some restructuring in training department and I have been promoted and assigned with new JD wherein , I need to create and train the trainers on new modules on Behavioural Training at Pan India level, Co-ordinate with Supervisors, Tie up with Training Institutes/ colleges Pan India and also undertake New product / enhancement testing .
I am very happy about new job role but unhappy with the designation label which is Training coordinator .
Seeking your help and guidelines.
With kind regards,

Hi Shabnam,
I understand that the designation does not truly reflect your work profile.
I believe you can talk to the decision maker in your company and share your thought with the reason and do mention you would be happy if the designation is renamed.
Designations are created internally, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Dear Senior, Please help me with PPT on Email Etiquette for Customer Support Department and some templates that I may use as examples on email reply. Regards, Shabnam
You can ask for the designation of Training manager - as that is what you are doing, managing not coordinating.
Alternatively, you can use Talent development manager, Talent advisor and developer, etc.
You can google to find out a few other up coming professional names.
Choose any that best describes your work.
All the best!

How about something like Manager - Training and External Coordination
Dear Shabnam,
The designation is merely a show off to the external world. Be excited about your new profile and do justice to the profile you have got. The more you learn and groom yourself, the more prepared you would be to new challenges in your domain. For growth in your career, ideally, your evaluator would try to judge you more on your capabilities and achievements, therefore, the designation would be immaterial.
On a separate note, you should try virtual classroom platform for product trainings, since the trainings could be delivered much faster and at a lot lesser costs. You need to bring innovations in your space of operations. The quality of trainings could also be kept intact rather than train the trainers options which is mostly a sub-optimal solution.
Let me know if you would like to explore further on this.
