4 Months Intensive and First of its kind ‘Train the Trainer’ Certification Program
Evidence continue to grow showing that companies investing more in training produce improved financial results in terms of higher net sales, gross profits per employee, stock growth and ratio of market to book value. Organizations are now realizing that worker knowledge and skills is a competitive advantage. Organizations have begun to realize that training is a tool not only for getting better job performance, but also for creating organization –wide adaptability. It is not just large organizations that see the value of spending substantial amounts of money on training. An analysis of small business shows that firms that they too are equally committed to training and developing their employees. Companies not investing in training are more likely to fail to maintain competency levels of existing employees and thus lose out their competitive edge in the marketplace. Consumer demands for higher quality product and services and the fiercely competitive global economy require employees at every level, who are more knowledgeable, more committed to quality, show better judgment and demonstrate more competencies than ever before. Not only for organization, even for individuals ‘training’ is the single most powerful investment one can make. Investing in ourselves, to sharpen our skills and to develop a deep desire for continuous self improvement is the key to self actualization, success and excellence in life.
At IATD/IATD, Training is not transmitting information. We believe Training is transformation of learners in ways that are desirable both for them and for organizations. Telling in any form engenders passivity. It is one way communication. It is content focused. It is transmission. True learner centered training and education required dialogue and experience – engaging conversation and meaningful interaction – to transform. Most training programs focus on instructional stimulus elements, that is, what you should do to be a great trainer. They rarely explain how the learner deals with these stimuli and how he internalizes these learning. Humans have an enormous capacity for learning, a capacity genetically coded into us. Learning is an innate capability of all humans but like height or body build, it varies by individual. Without a clear understanding of how humans learn and retrieve what is taught to them, we decrease the probability of successful learner transformation. The same content, presented differently, creates a different path on learning and retention. We are designed to notice what appears to be relevant. If we perceived everything around us, we would not be able to eliminate the irrelevant. That lion bearing down on us should command all of our attention, and the pretty blue flower nearby should not distract us. As an information processing organism, we are hardwired with an automatic ability to filter out perceptual irrelevancies. From a training-learning perspective that is very important. If the learner feels that the information is not vital to his or her needs, the automatic system may raise the threshold of sensory input and filter out what is being transmitted. As a result, there is no perception and no learning. Learners generally want to learn; trainers want learners to learn. This disconnect arises in the‘What’ and ‘How’ of learning. . By understanding that learners have information processing constraints, memory load limits, differing perceptions and backgrounds, we can facilitate what both learners and trainers want – effective learning.
At IATD/IATD we unfold the secret to excellence in training right from need analysis, design stage, development stage, and implementation phase to evaluation phase. IATD/IATD – Train the Trainer program is one of the most in-depth and intensive train the trainer program that helps participant to transform themselves and to develop confidence and skills to transform others.
