How to Become a Training Manager

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Training Managers are very important to the development of a future employee�s contributions to their workplace and ultimately to the success of the company that hires them. These kinds of managers are the ones responsible for screening applicants before they can even be considered to hold a position. But they're not just merely the weed cutters; they're also responsible for rooting out bad work ethics in an applicant who has potential and therefore refining and retuning them so as to work efficiently. In short, they are the bridge guards or gatekeepers that examine an aspirant before the crossing. If you think that you have what it takes to become this kind of manager, then consider this article as a basic guide on how to become a good Training Manager.

The Basics

The first thing you need to have to be able to work as a trainer in a company is a bachelor's degree in teaching or at least business administration. You can choose some other field that is related to whichever kind of company you want to work with, but those two mentioned above are the basic standards. Next, you'll need actual experience in the field you studied, such as getting a certified teaching and education degree. This is also important because you can't become a trainer if you don't know how to instruct people. In that same vein, being highly adept in Human Resources Management (HRM) is also a good idea.

Non-Technical Fundamentals

Before proceeding, you need to know which kind of field you want to work in before you can fully integrate yourself into the trainer business. There are basically two kinds. First is the technical aspect, and the second is the non-technical aspect. The non-technical aspect will be the first to be covered since the basics are transferable to technical managerial status. Below is a guide you'll find handy so you can start to work as a Training Manager. These may not be absolute, but they certainly help. When combined with the basics, they are certainly very useful. And if you know how to use them, they can become powerful assets that serve you well.

  • Have an academic knowledge of Social Science, Psychology, Management, and Business. You can choose just one, but knowledge certainly is power. Try to learn as much as you can.
  • Develop your soft skills. This means you need to practice your social abilities in order to become good with people. Your EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient) needs to be fostered by learning to work, lead, and negotiate well.
  • Start small to build up your experience as you go along. Never be too hasty, and consider everything as huge stepping stones. Begin with small companies and go from there.
  • Work at home and try out everything you've learned on your family or friends and see it as a way to practice. Ask for their opinions on what they think you're doing wrong and evaluate for yourself what you think are the right and wrong ways.
  • Be innovative and insightful. Don't just focus on one perspective. Be creative, advanced, and perceptive.

Technical Fundamentals

The above guidelines are enough for the non-technical aspect of becoming a trainer, but they are also highly applicable to the technical aspect. If you're considering on going technical, then you need more. First off, you must have more than a mild proficiency in various computer skills. With the modern era's above-average dependency in software and digital use, computer literacy should be a constant and expertise is needed of people who aspire for jobs manager positions. Here's what you'll need so that things are a little easier for you:
  • Software expertise. You need to have the basics of software analysis and hands-on testing experience for this job (CMMI, CSTE, CSQA, ITIL, ITSM, and IMS training). If you don't have at least one of these, then you'll be hard pressed to even be accepted in a technical coach.
  • Project Management. You're also going to need this experience to put in your resume. Although you're still eligible if you have been involved in a huge technical project that demanded a lot of personal time and social contributions from you, such as development analysis of a team's progress or as troubleshooting coach/supervisor.
  • Teaching Degree/Certificate. This doesn't just mean teaching in general. It basically means that you have to be accredited by the state or country you're working in to be eligible to teach, and that you also have to have field experience. This also means that you have to be specific on which technical field you're proficient in so that you can actually pass that particular knowledge to the aspirants. You don't teach physics to a tech rep class. Get the point?
So those are the basics, but here's a final tip to help you along the way. The most impressive thing you can show in your resume is the proud emphasis of your experience. Show the company what you've learned along the way so as to get that Training Manager Job you've always wanted. Don't be shy if you've worked odd jobs, as long as they're related to the work to which you're applying. In conclusion, it's all about experience and working with different sorts of people.
