How our Train the Trainer courses Dublin are delivered

We offer courses for both individuals (public) and teams / groups (in-company).

Our public courses for individuals run every month throughout the year. They are available online for anyone to attend. You can view upcoming dates below.

We deliver these courses in a live virtual classroom format. This format is very similar to an in-person classroom, in that you can interact with your trainer and fellow trainees throughout.

Our in-company courses can be delivered online or in person at your location in Dublin. In-company training is ideal for companies of any size that have a number of candidates for Train the Trainer.

Understanding the different Train the Trainer courses

The term “Train the Trainer” comes from a now deactivated FETAC award. It is still used by most people when referring to the group of QQI courses that cover essential training skills.

For more detail on the origins and background of Train the Trainer, we recommend a quick read through our “What is Train the Trainer?” article.

Here is an overview of the courses available:

QQI Training Delivery & Evaluation – award code: 6N3326


Training Delivery and Evaluation is the course that most people choose to attend. It is very close in content and style to the old Train the Trainer award, which was deactivated at the end of 2014.

If you have been told to “get a Train the Trainer”, it is likely that this is the award you need.
