Train the Trainer courses or programs can take many formats and periods of time to complete. Derek Stockley, a Melbourne based training consultant, provides some background to the issues involved.

Team leaders and managers in the business, community and education sectors are often required to coach and train others. They do not need the formal training qualifications required by training officers, teachers and tutors.
Often, training needs can be quite varied. Courses can range from a one day program to develop on-the-job training skills, to programs of two, three, four or five days.
Train the Trainer - Course Content
The content of these train the trainer courses is as diverse as the people and organisations they serve. Each should be based on specific training needs, see: Training Needs Analysis.
Typical content could include:
- training needs analysis
- designing learning
- conducting programs
- evaluating training
Specific topics could include:
- learning theories
- communication and presentation techniques
- learning aids
- e-learning and blended learning
- competency influences
- presentation skills.
These are just examples of the learning content that may be necessary to develop trainers. A needs assessment would be completed to finalise the course design.
