What does a Training Specialist/Training Manager do?

Training specialists design, develop, implement, and oversee training programs for businesses, organizations, and educational institutions. They identify the organization’s training and development needs and create entirely new initiatives or reform and improve existing programs. They may directly present training content or supervise trainers and other staff. They identify goals and desired outcomes, and establish assessment standards and benchmarks to evaluate the program’s success. They manage the production of guides, videos, and other supporting content. They commonly work in close collaboration with internal stakeholders and teams throughout the program development process.

Training specialists typically have a bachelor’s degree in a business or human relations field, and a background in HR, ideally in roles that involve developing training programs. These positions require excellent project management skills and an in-depth understanding of common business training techniques.
