“Have you got a professional training qualification?”
Although I’ve been the recipient of a great deal of training, have delivered training for years (and I’ve done a ‘train the trainer’ course), I’ve never actually been asked by a client whether I’m professionally qualified to train them.

According to the feedback I receive, delegates seem to like the fact that I am not a full-time trainer; rather, I am working ‘hands-on’ in the topics I train them in.

Do you think a professional training qualification is important?

People often make decisions on the smallest number factors, they want to keep it simple.

Perhaps a professional qualification falls into the 'tick in the box' category, compared to other, more exciting, factors that buyers can find to justify their decisions?

Any shortcut to decision-making helps. Maybe 'qualifications' fall into that category. I might stick with my reviews!

I have Train The Trainer, CEPEC and a few that I've picked up along the way. I'm accredited to deliver the tools that I use; SDI, Belbin, MBTI. I think that's important because you need to understand the models properly.

Nothing trumps experience though, and I do think that the most engaging trainers have a natural talent for performing.

That's bad, right?
There is a poll on Training Zone that shows 69% of responders say they are NOT happy with their ROI of their training investment. Ooer.

I went to see the poll to try to understand the questions and data better. I put 69% in the search bar, hoping to find it that way.

A lot of polls in the results seemed to have a 69% outcome.

Aha, maybe the same 3 people respond every time!

I wonder why they don't change their providers?
