If an organization really wants to change the corporate culture in order to improve key results, then influencing employees from within the organization is necessary. Real, lasting change always comes from within. To embed new, effective behavior in the DNA of your organization, VitalTalent has an accessible train-the-trainer solution. After following one our public workshops or in-company training events, you can start the certification process, which is led by a Master Trainer. As a in-house trainer you can exclusively train colleagues within the same organization in the skills and insights of the training you’re certified for.

Three Requirements for Trainer Certification
Our Trainer Certification courses focus on deepening content knowledge, maximizing instructional design through use of videos and exercises, and clearly explaining content through the use of storytelling.
In order for trainers to be successful, it is imperative that their organization supports them in the training process. Certified Trainers should come from a sponsoring workplace that has committed budget to the training. During the Certification Course, a Master Trainer will discuss the tools and resources available to assist trainers in marketing and implementing our training solutions.
Ability to use technology is an essential part of Trainer Certification. Our training presentations integrate slides, videos, exercises, and audience polling. The system is not diffcult to use for those who are comfortable with Microsoft Office Products or other presentation software.
What does the Trainer Certification Course entail?
The Trainer Certification Course is designed to give trainers a deeper understanding of the content and a basic set of skills to deliver the training.
Course Content Review: a cognitive assessment helps identify areas each trainer should focus on in reviewing the content and preparing to train. The content overviews will help you make the connections between lessons and skills.
Application and Coaching: trainers will apply the skills and have an opportunity to coach others through their use of the skill as they will with their participants in their classrooms.
Practice: trainers will learn to use the VitalSmarts Instructional Platform and have plenty of opportunities to practice and ask questions.
Videos and Exercises: our training courses have a wealth of videos that demonstrate important skills, and exercises that give participants a chance to practice what they are learning. The certification course covers how to set up and debrief key exercises and videos, as well as how to get the maximum impact from them.
Teachback: at the end of the Trainer Certification Course, each trainer will have an opportunity to demonstrate facilitation skills during a fifteen-minute “teachback.” He or she will also receive coaching and feedback from the Master Trainer and others in the course.
