What does a Sales Trainer do?
Sales trainers provide sales training, mentoring, and support services. They train and educate sales staff from the point of their initial hire and on a continuous, ongoing basis. They develop and implement training and professional development programs. They may also provide training to help other staff members outside of the sales department strengthen and develop their sales skills. They create, select, and develop curriculum and other resources for training programs. They may also assist with the recruitment and hiring process by helping with the creation of job profiles or position descriptions.
Sales trainers typically have at least a high school diploma, although a bachelor’s degree is usually preferred. They have a strong background in sales, ideally including roles as a sales trainer. Teaching or training experience or a history of creating training materials is helpful.
