Train the Trainer training programs have the power to transform the way your organization manages health and safety training. There are numerous benefits of implementing Train the Trainer programs.
What is a Train the Trainer Program?
Train the Trainer (TTT) programs teach participants everything they need to become workplace trainers. Upon completion of a TTT program, employees are both knowledgeable on the subject, and able to teach the course to other employees. A TTT course covers all of the regular subject matter, and may also cover training-specific components such as:
- Adult learning theory and techniques
- Training delivery notes
- Answer keys
- Tips and tricks for timing your delivery
- Administering and marking tests
- Managing the classroom
Once a worker has completed a TTT course, they can deliver that course as many times as they wish to other employees. Some programs require the purchase of individual training materials through the TTT provider for every participant at a significant cost. Best Safety Training and Consulting Train the Trainer courses do not require the purchase of participant materials! Our TTT programs come with printable presentations.
The Benefits of Train the Trainer Programs
Train the Trainer programs feature numerous benefits for employers.
Save on training costs by training on-site, saving on travel expenses, and skipping registration fees. When you have a workplace trainer, you can train as many workers as you like, at no additional expense. And, since BEST Safety doesn’t charge for additional training materials, you’ll experience even greater cost savings with a BEST Safety TTT program.
Break free from the constraints of traditional classroom training and train where you want, when you want. Do you have a midnight shift? Your workplace trainer can complete their training without having to disrupt their schedule. You may choose to train at your facility, or a local meeting spot, saving the frustration of long commutes to training facilities.
Home Field Advantage
A lesser thought of benefit to having a workplace trainer deliver training on-site is that they’re familiar with your organization’s specific set-up, layout, machinery, and work processes. A workplace trainer has the advantage of being able to take a health and safety training course into the field to deliver a hands-on, customized learning experience.
Providing additional training for workers to become certified workplace trainers is a great way to drive employee engagement and motivation. Many workplace trainers take pride in having the opportunity to teach others through their experience on the job.
How to Select an Effective Workplace Trainer
When it comes to choosing a workplace trainer, there’s a lot to consider. You’ll want to be sure to select a worker who is responsible, experienced, and up to the task. Consider the following:
- Passion: It’s not a prerequisite, but it helps if the trainer is passionate about workplace safety.
- Charisma: Public speaking is part of the job, so try to choose a worker who’s comfortable, or can at least tolerate, being in front of an audience.
- Responsibility: Choose a worker that others look to as an example of safe behaviour in the workplace.
- Experience: A good workplace trainer has some experience they can draw from.
- Interest: Try to choose a worker who has expressed interest in further training or being a workplace trainer. It’s a great way to recognize good work.
