Certified Professional Trainer

Certified Professional Trainer

This is a career development programme designed to provide the competencies and the know-hows needed to become, as the title suggests, a professional trainer. Aside from coaching and moulding you into becoming a great trainer using creative training techniques, this programme also teaches you the BUSINESS of training. Unlike the typical train-the-trainer courses so readily available in the market, the CPT course is a professional development, apprenticeship and mentorship programme designed specifically for intended practitioners who want to experience dramatic growth and transformation in their effectiveness as a trainer. This programme also provides a very good foundation for anyone who has a certain expertise but does not know how to train.

A 12-month Career Development Programme with on-the-job training, coaching and co-teaching opportunities. As a scholar, you will be going “live” on real training assignments which are highly practical and intensive in nature.

This Programme comprises of 3 parts.

The Core Skills Programme focusing on the skills and the art of high impact training.

It covers the latest in training techniques where you not only LEARN but put into PRACTICE what they have been taught. This is done through a wide range of highly interactive exercises and practice sessions as well as super-learning methods and experiential techniques. Conducted in a supportive and dynamic atmosphere, scholars are also required to prepare and carry out four practice sessions and will learn at least 18 different exercises/games. Three of these sessions will be video-taped and critiqued to enable further improvements.
