Certified Training & Development Manager Course Overview

The Training & Development Manager is an integral component of an HR team. As well as supporting other HR team members, they are required to lead efforts for organisational development by identifying skill gaps in the workforce and arranging training accordingly. Although supported by Training Professionals, the Training & Development Manager is the primary decision maker regarding the training of employees. By providing efficient learning and development practices, a Training & Development Manager can help an organisation to execute their business strategy.

Our two-day Training & Development Manager certification will allow delegates to gain an understanding of the importance of training across all levels of an enterprise and the responsibilities of this role within an HR Department. The course begins with a brief overview of Human Resources as a whole, followed by an explanation of Training and Development. Afterwards, our experienced instructors will move on to discuss the specific duties of a Training and Development Manager. These can include managing the training budget, organising training sessions, managing relationships with external training providers, carrying out training needs analysis, and aligning training with business priorities. When training is deemed necessary, professionals operating in this role should be capable of selecting the most appropriate type of training and delivery method to suit the requirements of the employees and the business as a whole.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
