There are many and various ways of training a group of people who you need to be skilled in a new area of work. We’re going to take a look at some of the options that you can use to get that team fully conversant and compliant in whatever skillset you are trying to get them to do.
There are many reasons why a new level of training is required. In this modern age the basis of technology that we use is constantly shifting and changing so the need to be up to speed in any business, care profession or public works department is huge.
To start with, it’s a good idea to review the actual number of people you are looking to train. Increasingly the use of an online course or training tool that checks knowledge and stays at the pace of the person looking to be trained is a new and welcome development to some organisations. They can greatly reduce costs by purchasing a package that can easily be run by internal training or not even require a trainer at all.

Employees sitting working through online training is one way but from a personal experience point this can be very limiting especially if you think that the training need is just a case of upskilling. In this scenario, check regulations for training so you do not fall foul of a major error with the regulator if relying on a workbook and online structure. There may be a requirement to switch back to a trainer-based face to face programme instead. Mistakes here can prove costly. Trainer based programmes run over a wide range of days and groups can be beneficial as the students have a human focal point as opposed to a faceless unresponsive workbook.
Using trainers allows them to be able to focus on the class and to ascertain who needs more help and who is progressing so that they can help others. A good human trainer will be able to still utilise all kinds of media to train the class and there is also the development of webex systems where the groups can be working remotely yet still in contact with a human. There are also video and voip phone systems akin to skype that allow the trainer to work on a remote yet also face to face basis. Either way training is vital.
