9780071370288: The Trainer's Support Handbook: A Guide to Managing the Administrative Details of Training

Most books on training focus on how to prepare classroom materials and lesson plans, and how to be a good presenter. However, a 1999 survey of 200 training professionals conducted by author Jean Barbazette's company, The Training Clinic, found that 26% to 51% of their time was spent on administrative tasks relating to training: scheduling training events; registering and confirming attendance at training events; preparing training rooms for instruction; evaluating the success of training efforts; and marketing training internally. "The Training Coordinator's Handbook" is the first book that focuses on these tasks - "the other 50%" of a trainer's workload -that happen outside the classroom. The Handbook makes life easier for training professionals with dozens of tools, job aids and guidelines that make these tasks simpler and faster. The book should appeal to training managers, trainers and full-time training coordinators bogged down in administrative details and responsibilities, or who want help with the important planning issues every trainer must deal with, such as developing an overall plan for training in the organization and determining who needs training and in what areas. Based on a public workshop offered by The Training Clinic entitled "Today's Effective Training Coordinator", the book provides helpful tools for speeding up tasks such as: selecting and hiring training vendors or internal subject matter experts; marketing training internally; registering participants; scheduling and setting up classrooms; and following up after training to see if the training was effective or what additional training needs remain.

From the Back Cover:

Simplify Training Support Tasks!

Training professionals spend at least half their time away from the classroom tending to paperwork and performing support functions such as scheduling, registering and confirming attendance at events, preparing training rooms for instruction, evaluating the success of training efforts, and marketing training internally. Yet most books on training ignore these tedious but necessary tasks and focus on presentation skills. The Trainer's Support Handbookis the first book designed to simplify and speed up the administrative tasks that take up so much of a trainer's time.

Based on leading trainer Jean Barbazette's train-the-trainer workshops, this book helps simplify tedious, time-consuming tasks so trainers can spend more time on training. The book provides dozens of worksheets, forms, checklists, and job aids can be downloaded from the Web and customized to meet the needs of your organization and your trainees.

Time-saving worksheets in the book help busy trainers:

  • prioritize responsibilities,
  • get management support,
  • assess training needs,
  • select packaged training,
  • keep courses up to date,
  • hire external trainers and consultants,
  • publicize and market training events,
  • maintain a training web site,
  • administer training events,
  • set up off-site training events,
  • run a corporate resource center,
  • create a budget for training, and
  • demonstrate training successes.
  • And much more

The book also includes training room set-up diagrams, forms for participant feedback and more. The Trainer's Support Handbook is the definitive resource for today's busy, multi-tasking training professional.
