How long does it take to get Train The Trainer certified?
A lot of people ask about the certification process for Train The Trainer and how long it takes to achieve certification. You’ll be surprised to learn that it’s a simple, 3-step process.
Why Train the Trainer?
Getting Train the Trainer certified is a must for anyone who trains others in any capacity.
For this reason, Train the Trainer is one of the most consistently popular certifications across all sectors. It’s a skill-set and qualification beneficial to managers, business owners, HR professionals, team leads, and of course, professional trainers.
What Are the 3 Steps?
Step 1: Choose A Course
We know that as a provider of Train The Trainer Courses, we’re slightly biased here...
This is, however, a very important step in achieving your Train the Trainer certification. Take your time and find the right style of course to suit your needs.
Our courses are short and intensive, with a strong element of practical learning. They suit those who want to build confidence as they learn and come away with a high retention level of the skills gained.
Tip: If you’re in the process of choosing your training provider, here is our checklist of 3 essential questions to ask:
- Are there training dates available in the next few months?
- Is the provider authorised to deliver courses leading to QQI certification?
- Does the training format suit my schedule?
Step 2: Attend Training
Most Train The Trainer courses run over a short, focused time.
Our Training Delivery and Evaluation course (also known as “the new Train the Trainer”) is 5 days and runs from Monday to Friday.
Participants immerse themselves in training, learning about crucial elements and tools within the Training Cycle, and developing their unique training style through practical learning.
Tip: We recommend leaving your evenings as free as possible during the training course.
A full day of training is intensive, and leaving your evening clear gives you time to revise what you’ve done, prepare for your skills demonstration, and get some rest so that you’ll be recharged for the next day.
Step 3: Complete & Submit Assessment Work
Completing the required assessment work is an essential part of achieving a Train the Trainer certification.
We provide our delegates with a clear and detailed assessment brief, along with guidance and tips for getting the most from your assessment work.
With our course, the practical skills demonstration section of certification takes place on the last day of training, and you’ll have 8 weeks after training to complete and submit your written assessment work.
Tip: Get as much of your written assessment as possible done in the initial days and weeks after training.
The information will flow much more easily, as it’s still fresh in your mind.
Once you have submitted your work on time and scored the marks needed to pass, you’ll achieve a Train the Trainer certification!
As with all QQI certifications, it will take a few months to receive your physical certification.
Once you have achieved your first Train the Trainer certification, why not think about progressing to the QQI Training and Development Special Purpose Award?
