A human resource training manager is responsible for training employees. They may train new employees on what their individual job entails and how to successfully perform it; they may also provide continuing education for existing employees to maintain certain skills or reinforce safety protocols. The training specialist also meets with members of management to assess and implement their training needs. The human resource training specialist is responsible for the entire training process, including developing teaching tools, designing training programs, scheduling training and orientation sessions, and modifying training programs to ensure they are as effective and efficient as possible.
A human resource training specialist typically works in an office setting during regular business hours, and they often spend a substantial portion of their time in training sessions, giving lectures or other job-specific presentations. Specialists who perform their job well might have the opportunity to work in a higher-level management position.
A bachelor's degree in human resource management or a similar field may be required or preferred. The training specialist must be skilled in communication, have good interpersonal skills, be good leaders, and be able to effectively communicate complex ideas in an easily understandable way.
