Why Study to Become a Trainer?
Training is often defined as ‘the process of teaching individuals or groups either to do something new, or to do something better’. In reality, however, effective training is about far more than simple instruction or tuition. For training of any kind to be effective, it must be engaging, inspiring and motivating. It must encourage those taking part to take an active interest in both the subject matter and their own personal development. For this to happen, the trainer leading the course or workshop must be equally inspiring, engaging and motivating. To succeed as a professional trainer, it takes confidence, enthusiasm and the ability to adapt to a variety of learning styles. It also means being able to cope with difficult situations, put on an inspiring presentation and manage a challenging workload. Whether pursuing promotion from a current position or considering self-employment, career opportunities for successful trainers are wide open.
This advanced Level 5 ‘Train the Trainer’ Diploma is designed for the most ambitious and enthusiastic candidates worldwide. Course content is delivered over a series of 10 engaging modules, each concluding with an online assessment your assigned tutor will mark and return:

The functions and objectives of training are also discussed, along with the skills, knowledge and personal qualities required to succeed in the field.
Module 2 – Increasing Your Expertise
Module two turns attention to continuous personal and professional development as a personal trainer. Candidates examine the importance of increasing their own knowledge and expertise on an ongoing basis, while also considering the use of learning materials, the connection between motivation and learning, the concept of ‘over-planning’ and more.
Module 3 – Stress Management Training
