What Is a Train the Trainer Course?
Train the trainer is a soft skills training course, which means it aims to condition interpersonal interaction in a professional environment. Whatever industry you work in, there may be some benefit to taking the course. First, though, here are five things to know.
Who Is It For?
Train the trainer is designed for any kind of trainer in any kind of field. The point is to improve the understanding of trainers like managers and leaders on the purpose and importance of training as well as its cost and benefits for the organizations providing it. It may benefit:
- Training managers
- Vocational managers
It will be of particular use to people in these and similar roles or people pursuing employment in such a role who do not have any prior training experience.
Prerequisites and Awards
No qualifications are required to enroll on a train the trainer course. Neither is there an examination at the end of it. However, you will likely receive a certificate or some other form of confirmation upon completing the course. Furthermore, the American Management Association assigns 1.8 continuing education units or credits to the course, which may be useful to you during the course of your employment and professional training.
How Can You Benefit?
In other words, the course is less about formal qualifications than it is about the genuine development of your skills as a trainer. The train the trainer course will teach you how to:
- Apply cutting-edge adult and accelerated learning techniques
- Understand your trainees’ needs and adjust your methods to suit them

- [ ✔️ ] Adult Education Courses
- Joint / Combined Bachelor's and Graduate Degree
Discipline - An academic area of study. Literature, history, social science, natural science, mathematics, the arts, and foreign language are disciplines; each discipline takes a certain approach to knowledge.
Interdisciplinary - Programs taught by groups of faculty members from several departments.
Matriculated - A matriculated student has been accepted for admission to the college, has registered in a major and is pursuing courses toward a degree or certificate.
Non-Matriculated - Non-degree courses designed to allow any interested individual to attend college level courses without enrolling, declaring a major or seeking a degree, these courses are often taken for fun or to learn a specific skill.
✔️ Adult Ed ucation Courses - Also known as Continuing Education or Professional Development courses. Classes can be completed in a year or less and are frequently offered in the evenings and on the weekends. The cost of training is usually moderate. These cla sses will provide training for work and fulfill the requirements to obtain a General Education Development (GED) certification, which is the equivalent to a high school diploma.

Major / Minor
Major - In layman's terms your major is the subject that you will take the most courses in and learn the most about. Your major is the area of study that your degree will be in, after you complete the required (or "core") courses.
Applied Majors - Programs that prepare students for a specific career by giving the knowledge and skills needed in a particular line of work (ie: food science, landscape, architecture, finance, graphic design, special education, engineering, veterinary technology, forensic science, etc.). Applied majors also prepare students for special licensing, certifications and other credentials. The disadvantage of committing to an applied major is that there may be fewer job options once you graduate and you may have to worry about job cycles and economic slumps in your field, or the possibility of your education and training becoming outdated.
Academic Majors - These majors don't provide specific job training and therefore, don't necessarily lead to specific careers. As a result, you may have to accept a job with a lower starting salary. Academic majors prepare you for graduate studies or for professions in which a wide range of skills and creative talents are valued including: the ability to communicate, understand people, read, think about the world, or work with numbers. Future employers should note that academic training helps enable a person to understand texts, express themselves verbally, and analyze and solve problems, which ultimately helps adapt to change.
Concentration - Specialization in a certain area within a particular major (ie: a Business major with a concentration on Marketing). Concentrations are generally not available until grad[uate] school.
Double or Dual Major - Completing course work for two majors at the same time. The two majors can be related or unrelated to each other, they can also combine an academic and an applied major (ie: Major in Art History and Fine / Studio Arts or, Anthropology and Native American Studies).
Minor - A minor is course work in which you explore another field, but not as widely or as deeply as for your major. This is additional course work that is usually pursued at the same time as your Major. You might choose to minor in a subject that complements, or adds strength to your major (ie: a Minor in Business Administration with a Major in Public Relations). Or, you could minor in a subject that's not related but may exercise the opposite side of your brain.
Joint / Combined Bachelor's and Graduate Degree - For many joint degrees you are accepted into both programs when you apply to college. A joint degree often includes three years of study for a bachelor's degree, then during the fourth year you begin the graduate program. The advantage is that you can complete both degrees in less time than it would take to earn the two degrees the traditional way (often saving a year).
Some colleges also offer their graduate master's and Ph.D. programs as joint degrees.
A Guide to Choosing Your College Major [study.com] - Trends shift over time and with so many areas of study there really is no way to create an all-inclusive and completely objective resource. With that in mind, Study.com has compiled information that might be considered a spring board when beginning your research into college degrees.

H. completion of course work, submission of course work to instructors.
Students in Yale College are expected to take personal responsibility for the timely delivery to their instructors of all course work, including examinations, in the manner and format prescribed by the instructors. In-person submission, either to the instructor or to someone explicitly designated by the instructor, such as a teaching fellow or an administrative assistant, is always the best way to ensure that the work has been received. Students who submit course work in a manner other than in person and directly to an appropriate individual (e.g., place it under a door or in a box in a hallway or send it via electronic means), should—even when that is the method directed by the course instructor—confirm as soon as possible after the submission that the work has been received. Students who must use postal services to submit a course assignment, because they will be unavoidably absent from campus at the time an assignment is due, should ascertain in advance from the instructor the correct mailing address and use receipted mail services to establish the date of mailing.
Instructors are not required to accept course work sent over a computer network to their computer, printer, or email account unless they have explicitly authorized such electronic submission in the course syllabus or have made a special arrangement with the student. Instructors may establish a deadline for electronic submission of a particular assignment different from the deadline for submission of the same assignment on paper.
Late or Postponed Work
There are three kinds of late or postponed work: (1) work late during term time; (2) work incomplete at the end of term; and (3) postponed final examinations. Instructors of courses may, during term time, give permission to make up late or missed work, provided that such work is submitted before the end of term. Only the residential college dean, however, may authorize the late submission of work still incomplete at the end of term, or the postponement of a final examination.
When students know in advance that they must miss or postpone work for a legitimate reason, as described in “Work Missed During the Term” and in “Postponement of Final Examinations” below, they should inform the instructor and the residential college dean as soon as possible.
Work Missed During the Term
The basic responsibility for permitting postponement of work during the term rests with the instructor. However, the residential college dean may give permission for a student to make up work missed or delayed during the term because of an incapacitating illness or incapacitating condition of any kind, the death of a family member, or a comparable emergency. The residential college dean also has authority to give permission to make up work missed because of the observance of religious holy days and because of participation required in intercollegiate varsity athletic events. Only in these cases does a residential college dean have authority to give permission to make up late work during term time. This permission is conveyed by means of a special form which, upon approval by the college dean, is sent to the student's instructor. Students participating in events of intramural or club sports, as differentiated from varsity events sponsored by the Department of Athletics, are not eligible for a postponement of work by the dean on account of those events.
In all other cases of work missed during the term, permission to make up course work must be secured directly from the instructor of the course, since the instructor is the only person who can decide, in the context of the nature and requirements of the course, whether such permission is appropriate. This permission may not, however, extend beyond the end of the term. Permission to submit work still incomplete at the end of term may be granted only by a student’s residential college dean. See “Work Incomplete at the End of Term” below.
Work Incomplete at the End of Term
Only the residential college dean has authority to give permission to a student to submit work in a course after the end of term. The college dean may give such permission because of an incapacitating illness or incapacitating condition of any kind, because of a serious family emergency, or because of another matter of comparable moment. In such cases, the college dean may authorize a mark of Temporary Incomplete for a period not to exceed one month from the beginning of the final examination period. Note that the mark of Temporary Incomplete refers to unfinished course work that was originally due in the closing weeks of the term, and not to assignments (such as lab reports, problem sets, reading responses, etc.) originally due prior to the last day of classes. Note also that the mark of Temporary Incomplete does not refer to a final examination missed for any reason; see “Postponement of Final Examinations” below.
The residential college dean, in authorizing a mark of Temporary Incomplete, will stipulate the date on which the student’s late work will be due and the date on which the instructor is expected to submit a course grade to the registrar. The college dean may not set this second date later than one month after the beginning of the final examination period. If the student’s work has not been completed in time for the instructor to report a grade to the registrar by the deadline stipulated, then the instructor will submit a grade for the student that reflects the absence of the missing work, or the registrar will convert the mark of Temporary Incomplete to a grade of F. See section B, Grades , “General Regulations Concerning Grades and Transcripts,” and section F, Withdrawal from Courses .
Permission for a mark of Temporary Incomplete to last beyond one month from the beginning of the final examination period can be granted only by the Yale College Committee on Honors and Academic Standing. Such an extension may be given only for a brief period of time, usually one to two weeks, and only in response to extraordinary circumstances, usually of a medical nature. A petition for such permission must be submitted at the earliest possible date. In considering such requests, the Committee on Honors and Academic Standing takes into account the original deadline for submission of the work and the date on which a petition is delivered to the committee.
Use of Computers and Postponement of Work
Problems that may arise from the use of computers, software, and printers normally are not considered legitimate reasons for the postponement of work. A student who uses computers is responsible for operating them properly and completing work on time. (It is expected that a student will exercise reasonable prudence to safeguard materials, including backing up data in multiple locations and at frequent intervals and making duplicate copies of work files.) Any computer work should be completed well in advance of the deadline in order to avoid last-minute technical problems as well as delays caused by heavy demand on shared computer resources in Yale College.
Postponement of Final Examinations
Only the residential college dean may authorize postponement of a final examination. The residential college dean may give such permission because of an incapacitating illness or incapacitating condition of any kind, because of a family emergency requiring the student’s absence from New Haven, or because of another matter of comparable moment. The residential college dean may also authorize such a postponement because of the observance of religious holy days, or because of participation required in an intercollegiate varsity athletic event. Students participating in events of intramural or club sports, as differentiated from varsity events sponsored by the Department of Athletics, are not eligible for a postponement of final examinations on account of those events. Finally, the college dean may authorize postponement of a final examination if a student has three examinations scheduled during the first two full days of the final examination period, or three examinations scheduled consecutively in the final examination schedules.* The postponement of a final examination for any other reason requires the permission of the Committee on Honors and Academic Standing. A student’s end-of-term travel plans are not a basis for the postponement of a final examination. See Final Examination Schedules and section G, Reading Period and Final Examination Period , paragraph 4.
It is normally the expectation that when a student begins a final examination but does not complete it, the student will receive credit only for the work completed on the examination. If, however, a student becomes unable to complete an examination because of a sudden and serious illness or other emergency during the examination, the student may request authorization from the residential college dean to take a makeup final examination. In such a case, the student must explain their departure to the instructor, or to some other person proctoring the examination, before leaving the room, and must contact Yale Health or the residential college dean as soon as possible thereafter.
Instructors generally administer makeup final exams. Makeup examinations for the fall term should be scheduled by the end of the second week of classes in the spring term. Makeup examinations for underclass students who miss final examinations in the spring term should be scheduled by the end of the second week of classes in the following fall term. Students who will not be enrolled at these times—whether because they are on leave of absence or on a Year or Term Abroad, or because they have withdrawn from Yale—must contact their residential dean's office in advance of the second week of classes about alternative arrangements. The registrar automatically records a grade of F in a course for a student who fails to take an officially scheduled makeup examination in that course at the appointed time.
No fee will be charged for a makeup examination necessitated by illness, family emergency, the observance of a religious holy day, or participation required in an intercollegiate varsity athletic event. A charge of $35 will be made for the administration of a makeup examination occasioned by a conflict between two final examinations scheduled at the same time, or three examinations scheduled in the first two days of the examination period, or three final examinations scheduled in consecutive examination periods. Ordinarily there will be a charge of $35 for makeup examinations authorized for special reasons approved by the Committee on Honors and Academic Standing.
Permission to postpone a final examination does not authorize a student to submit other work late in that course. See “Work Incomplete at the End of Term,” above.
