Being a corporate trainer for more than 10 years, my passion for training, sharing knowledge and helping develop skills for the job just gets stronger every day. I still remember my first few nervous lines and sentences as a trainer. I was very awkward and still unsure of what I was supposed to do, but I plowed on. I pushed forward so I can keep doing something that I definitely have a passion for.

Fortunately for me, being a trainer just keeps getting easier every day. A corporate trainer does not just stand in front of a group of participants and talk about a topic or subject. It is a lot more than that.

The training process starts when a training request is received because there is a gap between employee performance and company expectations. The trainer will need to determine whether training will help bridge the performance gap. If not, the trainer can suggest other tools such as handouts or buddy system. If training can help bridge the performance gap, the trainer will then start making a training outline and training program.

Finally, the trainer can facilitate training. After the training, the trainer will then need to evaluate whether training was effective or not by evaluation the performance of the participants post-training.
