Experts in Train-the-Trainer Training for 30+ Years

TrainSMART has been providing premier workplace training programs and developing top facilitators and trainers for over 27 years. With deep expertise across industries, we empower organizations to upskill their workforces through impactful learning experiences.

How Great Facilitators and Trainers Get Their Start

Most facilitators and trainers did not start out on that career path. Often they gained deep expertise in a certain field or industry first, whether it was manufacturing, technology, healthcare, or other domains. After mastering their discipline, they felt drawn to share their knowledge with others more broadly.

Some trainers and facilitators also had backgrounds in teaching, communications, writing, or leadership roles. These experiences helped strengthen their ability to convey information clearly, manage groups effectively, and encourage participation and interaction.

Common Threads Among Successful Facilitators

While backgrounds vary widely, most exceptional facilitators and trainers faced difficult training situations early on without much formal preparation. By diving in, they developed critical skills on the job to fully engage audiences, empower adult learners, and create positive changes through their programs.

The best workplace learning facilitators continue honing these capabilities over decades through constant practice and feedback. Common threads among top performers include passion, adaptability, audience awareness, and a commitment to ongoing improvement.

What is the difference between online Train-the-Trainer Course Training and the Face-the-Face Train-the-Trainer?

Same learning objectives and takeaways for the VILT and the Face-to-Face Train-the-Trainer; however, many attending the Virtual Instructor-led Training have stated that they learned so much about how to design, deliver virtual training, and how to use the various tools such as breakout rooms, polling, chatting, and the use of jam boards.

What People Are Saying…

 I enjoyed this very much as it was enough people to make it fun and engaging, while small enough that I was able to provide input along the way and participate. Michelle Allegretti was my instructor for this course and I have to say that she was phenomenal. I learned so much from her and she made it a safe place to learn. There were people all over the world that attended so it was quite an interesting class. It was extremely interactive so there was never a dull moment. I started the course skeptical and unsure of myself in a trainer role and left with the confidence to conquer my trainer role.
