Training Coordinator Role

Training Coordinators - Contract - TrainingPros

Do you possess high energy, attention to detail, and like to solve problems? You might be a great training coordinator! 

The deployment of workplace training involves a lot of moving parts. 

As an example, for in-person training, a room or facility must be booked that meet the size, location, and technology requirements for the class. Then a facilitator (outsourced or in-house) is selected and engaged. A list of targeted learners needs to be determined and those attendees need to be invited to the event well enough in advance to clear their schedules. If pre-work needs to be done before the training, that needs to be distributed to the learners and the completion of the assignment tracked and reported. Classroom materials need to be ordered and made available on the date of the learning. Depending on how long the training lasts, food and beverage often needs to be ordered for specific breaks in the class schedule.  

A great training coordinator will manage all of the above, plus they handle unforeseen emergencies as they arise with calm and confidence.
