Many experts believe that 80 – 90 percent of what an employee learns about the job is taught through on-the-job training (OJT), yet the majority of OJT is neither efficient nor effective. Efficient OJT is training that takes the least amount of time and uses the least amount of resources. Effective OJT is training that increases the employee’s skills to the desired level. For OJT to be effective and efficient, the OJT must be structured and the employee must have a Master Training Plan.  This course is for all instructors, managers, and supervisors who want to improve their OJT process.

Our Master Trainer Certification Program prepares trainers in every aspect of the training process.

Our approach takes participants through all phases of training delivery from preparation, to presentation, communication, facilitation, and evaluation.

How important is training?

Better trainers equal better training. Period. A course may include ideal courseware, the perfect venue, and enthusiastic learners and fail if the trainer is ineffective. Conversely, a course that includes below average courseware, a less-than-ideal venue, and lukewarm learners can be extraordinarily successful if the trainer is extraordinary.

Extraordinary trainers go beyond developing employees’ knowledge and skills; they increase employee buy-in, motivation and ownership. They do more than score well on class participant feedback forms; they ensure the participants retain what they learned, apply the learning on-the-job, and impact the success of the organization.

Extraordinary trainers aren’t born, they’re made. Training is a skill just like any other and must be learned, practiced, and perfected. The best trainers are those who have been trained and coached by extraordinary trainers.

PeopleCore’s trainers have conducted hundreds of courses and trained thousands of learners.  Through their experience, they have polished presentation skills and are well-equipped to help good trainers become great trainers.
