Job Description for Sales Trainer

Sales trainers are responsible for all aspects of training a sales force within their organization. They work with the sales training staff to create effective training methods, which includes developing curricula for training classes and creating training material such as video and computer training courses. Sales trainers may also design more interactive training methods, such as mock call sessions and direct supervision of live sales calls. Once training methods are created, sales trainers implement the training with sales teams. After training, sales trainers monitor the progress of the sales force to determine which training techniques are most effective and which need improvement.
