What does a Corporate Trainer do?

Corporate trainers are teachers working in a corporate setting and providing education and training to employees to ensure they have the necessary skills and knowledge to complete their jobs. As experts in both their field and education and training practices, corporate trainers develop their curriculum and teach it through content and skills building.

Corporate trainers work with leadership teams to develop coursework and provide professional development courses to employees. They monitor the efficiency of the training and find additional professional development opportunities if employees are interested. They lead orientation and identify and procure effective employee training software and systems and report on the training’s efficiency to leadership and stakeholders. They distribute surveys to employees when training finishes, compile answers, and report findings back to upper management. Corporate trainers need a minimum bachelor's degree in education, human resources, business administration, or related fields.
