As a training coordinator, you are a human resource specialist who implements talent development solutions. In this role, you assess staff needs, assist with the design of training materials, coordinate the delivery of training programs (whether developed internally or sourced externally), and monitor the results. In addition, you are often responsible for administrative tasks relating to training technology, internal consulting about training, project management, and working with outside vendors.
Gain a strong foundation to help you manage your diverse job roles and responsibilities. Develop a working knowledge of the basic skills used for instructional design and the integration of technology as a training device and management tool. Build your influencing skills to aid your interactions with peers, clients, and management.
The role of a training coordinator is an exciting one in any organization. You get the opportunity to touch many of the various roles within training: instructional design, assessment and evaluation, managing operations and project timelines, and occasionally executing some of the training itself. On top of that, you get to interact with employees before, during, and after training, along with inside and outside of training. But where do you start? It seems a little overwhelming, right?
In this three-part interactive course, participants will be introduced to and practice applying the key actions and outputs required to successfully support the efforts of a training team to execute learning events. Case study analysis during the course will prepare participants to apply the concepts of basic instructional design and training delivery, project management, and event logistics for when they return to work. Additionally, this course will strengthen participants’ ability to be the voice of reason for training in their organization—assisting them in making a business case for training, handling difficult people, and preparing to be an internal consultant.

In addition, it is strongly recommended to use a desktop or laptop computer as using a tablet or phone severely limits your ability to fully and actively participate in the program.
