Collaboration and Corporate Support

In the expansive engineering fields, collaboration and corporate support can provide programs that offer synergy and intellectual stimulation to all parties involved. The Institute of Industrial Engineering and Safety Management Systems (IIESMS) actively seeks opportunities to collaborate with other organisations to broaden professional development and educational opportunities for its members. By partnering with industry leaders and educational institutions, we aim to enhance the learning experience and provide cutting-edge knowledge and skills to our community. For more information, please contact our Director of Business, Donal Nolan.

When your company recognises the need for training, the next step is to determine the types of training 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. To aid in this decision-making process, we have identified the five most crucial criteria to consider when choosing the best training partners.

Expert Skills and Experience

Field experience is vital when seeking a training partner. 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 go unplanned. Experienced trainers should be influential thought leaders who share resources generously. You want a trainer who is passionate about their work and eager to teach. This passion and expertise ensure that the training provided is informative but also engaging and impactful.

Proven Track Record

Engaging a training partner helps address issues you can’t resolve independently. IIESMS ensures that our training partners have a proven track record of assisting customers in achieving their goals. This proven success is a testament to their capability and reliability. A training partner with a solid history of delivering successful outcomes provides confidence that your investment in training will yield positive results. Their ability to demonstrate tangible improvements in other organisations strongly indicates their potential impact on your business.

Tailored Approach

When an organisation hires a trainer, it aims to meet specific needs, and individuals within the organisation typically have varying levels of experience. Therefore, a training partner who understands your organisation’s needs and customises material for your audience is invaluable. Tailored training ensures the content is relevant and directly applicable to the participants’ roles and challenges. This personalised approach enhances learning effectiveness and helps address the unique needs of each participant, leading to better overall outcomes.

Thorough Preparation

The involvement of the training partner is crucial. Training takes time, and no one wants to spend it addressing technological issues during a session. Understanding the trainer-to-student ratio is critical to ensure everyone receives the needed attention. Multiple trainers allow participants to seek assistance while the primary trainer teaches, ensuring a smooth and efficient learning process. Thorough preparation by the training partner, including pre-session planning and logistics management, ensures that the training environment is conducive to learning and free from distractions.

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 IIESMS training partners offer post-training support, ensuring participants can apply what they have learned and seek further guidance. This ongoing support is crucial for reinforcing new skills and addressing any challenges during implementation.

Considering these criteria, you can choose a training partner that delivers high-quality instruction and supports your organisation’s long-term success. At IIESMS, we are committed to working with training partners who meet these standards and help our members achieve their professional development goals.
