Generally, a technical training coordinator oversees a group of trainers in a company and helps them administer programs. This person also directly trains employees via both group and individual methods when needed. Some training is in-person, while other training may involve distance courses administered as e-learning. Travel may be necessary to visit various branches and provide training.
A technical training coordinator should have extensive knowledge in their field to best relate to current business needs and educate employees on new findings. He or she must also be familiar with all laws and regulations in the field to properly deliver training materials.

Basic computer skills are usually needed to create training materials, keep track of training records, and analyze results; from there, technical training coordinators can determine exactly what changes must be made.
