Becoming a professional trainer requires skills, knowledge, practice, and a recognised certification. There are many different train the trainer course qualifications available, but QQI awards are most popular in Ireland.
What QQI Qualifications Are Available?
We offer 3 QQI certification paths in Train the Trainer. What you choose will depend on your situation and requirements.
QQI Training Delivery & Evaluation (code: 6N3326) – 5 Days
This 5-day course centres on training delivery skills and methods for evaluating the effectiveness of a training programme.
We do cover a small amount of training planning and design, but the primary goal is to help you develop your capability and confidence to deliver engaging training sessions.
QQI Training Needs Identification & Design (code: 6N3325) – 4 Days
If you want to learn how to understand the training needs of your clients and design professional programmes that match those needs, Training Needs Identification and Design is the right course for you.
QQI Special Purpose Award in Training and Development (code: 6S3372) – 9 Days
This Special Purpose Award combines both courses (Training Delivery and Evaluation and Training Needs Identification and Design).
We give you the flexibility to complete each component at a time that suits your schedule, so that you can have a gap between courses.
How can I get started as a trainer?
We recommend that you start by attending at least one of the courses above to achieve a recognised, respected qualification.
There’s nothing like practise for developing your training style and confidence. For this reason, we include a lot of practical learning during our courses.
Once you have trained and certified, nothing matches regular training practice for progressing your professional skill.
During your workshop, our expert trainers will share their experience of building a reputation as a professional trainer.
