When your company recognises the need for training, the next step is to determine the training types to pursue and who should be responsible for delivering those programmes. You’ll likely encounter many training partners that offer the courses you’re seeking, but narrowing down the list can be challenging. Hence, we have identified the five most crucial criteria to consider when choosing the best training partners:
Expert Skills and Experience: When seeking a training partner, field experience is vital. The best instructors are masters in their fields and practise what they preach. They instruct on the correct methods to achieve goals and address issues when things are unplanned. Experienced trainers should be influential thought leaders who share resources. You want a trainer who is passionate about their work and eager to teach.
Importance of a Training Partner with a Proven Track Record, Tailored Approach, Thorough Preparation, and Ongoing Support.
Proven Track Record: Engaging a training partner helps address issues you can’t resolve independently. IIESMS ensures that our training partner has a proven track record of assisting customers in achieving their goals.
Tailored Approach: When an organisation hires a trainer, they’re attempting to meet specific needs, and individuals within the organisation typically have varying levels of experience. Therefore, a training partner that understands your organisation’s needs and customises material for your audience is invaluable.
Thorough Preparation: The involvement of the training partner is crucial. As previously mentioned, training takes time, and no one wants to spend time addressing technological issues during a session. Understanding the trainer-to-student ratio is critical to ensure everyone receives the attention they need. Multiple trainers allow participants to seek assistance while the primary trainer is teaching.
Ongoing Support: It’s important to remember that learning something new doesn’t mean all your questions are answered. An excellent trainer is accessible and available after the instruction. A genuine training partner will provide you with the tools and resources to continue learning beyond the session. All training partners offer post-training support.
