Who is the Trainer course aimed at?

What are the Course Entry Requirements?

There are no entry or qualification requirements for the Trainer course.  However, you should have a core level of communication, literacy and IT skills, and technical knowledge, appropriate for delivering training in your sector/occupation in the UK.
