What Train the Trainer Certification Course Students Are Saying...

Academy of Business Training:


I just wanted to let you know that I just got approved to be an Instructor by the State of Florida to give CE training. Thanks again for everything.

Dear Academy of

Business Training:

After completing the Train

the Trainer Self-Study

course, I filled out the

NY State application and

attached the Trainer the

Trainer transcript along

with a copy of the Train

the Trainer table of contents.

You might be interested to know I called the NYS Department of State, Division of Licensing Services, The Bureau of Educational Standards (518-486-3803) to follow up on my application process. The Director of Education at NYS confirmed my application arrived and went over it with me to make sure everything was in place so I could get a speedy approval.

He was very impressed with your course! He said, "This looks like a very intense course and not the usual mickey mouse course that people try and push through. I don't see any problem here and will approve it." I told him it was very intense and I highly recommend it.

Train the Trainer Certification Course Description

In the Train the Trainer Certification Course, students will learn skills to improve the competency and the productivity of one of the most critical pieces for success of any company...the training of adult learners. Adult learners are typically defined as learners over the age of 25. Adult education is the practice of teaching and educating adults. The practice is also referred to as Training and Development and is often associated with workforce or professional development.

​Educating adults differs from educating children in several ways. One of the most important differences is adults have accumulated knowledge, work experience, or military service that can add to the learning experience. Another difference is most adult education is voluntary; therefore, the participants are generally better motivated.​

Adults frequently apply their knowledge in a practical fashion to learn effectively. They must have a reasonable expectation the knowledge recently gained will help them further their goals ​

We offer three levels of this class. For the person who occasionally trains, we offer the Occasional Trainer Class (for class outline see below). For the person that training is their primary job responsibility, we offer the Master Trainer Class (for class outline see below), and for the person in need of a 40 hour class to comply with state training requirements, we off the 40 Hour Certification Class (for class outline see below).

The Occasional Trainer Class will teach you the basics of training to enable you to put together a class, reinforce learning through activities, promote understanding, facilitate discussion, and use visuals effectively.

In additional to the basics taught in the Occasional Trainer class, the Master Trainer Class expands on those topics and will provide you with an understanding of learning, how to assess training need, and how to develop and manage a training program. ​

The 40 Hour Certification Class follows the Master Trainer Outline, but provides additional time for activities and exercises to comply with most state Train the Trainer requirements.
