What our Students Say
Here is what some of our students had to say about their live virtual training experience:
“I love that the course is now available online – and don’t see any ways to improve it. [Virtual training] was different experience and I would be keen to see more online courses going forward.”
“Although, our tutor and my fellow trainees didn't actually physically meet, it didn't really matter as we all got to know each other and we even set up WhatsApp groups at the end of both courses so we could keep in touch.”
“I was nervous about the virtual delivery as my computer skills are basic but found it easy to use and the trainer engaged with everyone throughout the course and the scheduled breaks were ideal in length to allow us adequate time away from computer screen.”
“I was pleasantly surprised with the virtual delivery format and how well it facilitated both class discussions and group breakout sessions. At times it felt like I was in the classroom.”
Finding the Right Train the Trainer Course Galway
There are 3 options for Train the Trainer certification:
- Training Delivery and Evaluation
- Training Needs Identification and Design
- Special Purpose Award in Training and Development
You may be thinking “I just want to get Train the Trainer certified! Which certification do I choose?”.
Don’t worry, here’s a quick breakdown that will help you decide which option is right for you:
What is “Train the Trainer”?
Train the Trainer was a popular FETAC course that was deactivated by QQI at the end of 2014.
QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) was formed to amalgamate the former agencies of FETAC, HETAC, and NQAI.
The old Train the Trainer was deactivated to make way for a new suite of more in-depth, expanded programmes.
QQI Training Delivery and Evaluation
When looking for “Train the Trainer”, most people begin here.
This course is often simply called “The New Train the Trainer” as its content is closely aligned with the old FETAC course.
Over 5 days, our Training Delivery & Evaluation Course covers the essential skills you need to deliver skilful training with impact and evaluate the success of your training.
QQI Training Needs Identification & Design
All successful trainers follow the Training Cycle, a sequence of 4 stages required for effective training.
Training Needs Identification & Design focuses on the first two steps of this cycle:
- identifying training needs (training needs analysis)
- designing training programmes
A high percentage of our Training Delivery and Evaluation students also opt to complete this 3-day course to round out their skills.
QQI Special Purpose Award in Training and Development
This QQI Special Purpose Award is achieved automatically when you successfully complete both courses above.
Gaining this award is a popular choice as it equips you with a more robust training credential and a well-rounded set of skills to support your training career.
Getting Started: Train the Trainer for Individuals in Galway
Our Train the Trainer courses run throughout the year. Training Delivery & Evaluation runs at least once a month and Training Needs Identification & Design has dates available every second month.
We keep our live online class sizes small to ensure plenty of time for questions, feedback, and discussions – key elements of any impactful training programme.
For this reason, courses fill up well in advance of their start date. We schedule courses several months ahead, so we recommend saving your space as soon as possible.
Getting Started: Train the Trainer for Teams and Businesses in Galway
We offer all 3 Train the Trainer certification options for customised, in-company training delivery plus an additional option of our uncertified, Train the Trainer Foundation Course.
We deliver Train the Trainer programmes to teams from organisations of all sizes throughout Galway.
You choose the training dates. We can work around your schedule, avoiding peak productivity times and delivering training at a time that suits your business best.
We can come to your location anywhere in Galway or deliver training to your team via our live virtual classroom platform (a superb option for remote working teams).
