Basic Requirements for a Trainer


Personal Trainer Prerequisites

Professional training is a specialism of responsibility and reward in equally high measures. Moulding and shaping the futures of others by providing targeted training can be uniquely fulfilling. Contrary to popular believe however, it takes more than knowledge and expertise alone to become a successful trainer. Regardless of personal experience or proficiency in any given subject, training and coaching other people requires an entirely separate set of skills. For a trainer to success, they must be able to engage, motivate and nurture every individual they work with equally. Which means that while advanced specialist knowledge may be important, it’s by no means the only requirement for becoming a capable trainer.

This exclusive ‘train the trainer requirements’ tutorial has been designed for existing and prospective trainers alike.  Learn about the most important trainer and assessor qualifications, the responsibilities of the professional trainer, the importance of developing assertiveness skills and what constitutes aggressive behaviour. Study passiveness and passive-aggressive behaviour from the perspective of the professional trainer, along with the value and importance of total self-confidence.
