Becoming a Corporate Trainer!

Companies today are turning to experienced in-house corporate trainers to meet their staff development needs.  In-house corporate trainers enjoy the advantage of watching their students grow and evolve over time. They can see the results of their work play out in terms of sales results or improved customer service ratings. Evaluating those figures, they can expand and adapt their training programs to provide more effective learning experiences for new hires. They can also design remedial programs for employees who have not met company expectations.

Become a Contract Trainer!

More and more companies are relying on corporate training specialists to educate their customers on the proper use of their services and products. Especially in the software industry, where updates and revisions can potentially confuse and irritate customers, these roving groups of trainers drop into client worksites and make sure that their customers' teams can properly integrate their products to meet their goals.


In addition to traveling to client facilities, contract trainers can also work from centralized locations. From the corporate hub, they design and improve customer training programs, which can be delivered on a central campus or through distance learning.  As an extension of customer support, a good contract trainer can head off future drains on a company's resources by ensuring that customers do not require further assistance after their training session has ended. Companies that invest in expanding front-end training can often recoup huge savings from their annual customer support budgets.

THE TIME IS  NOW!!  

A corporate trainer, sometimes referred to as an instructional designer or business analyst, is a professional who designs training programs and instructs employees on a range of topics.  These professionals work for organizations that require standard training and other types of development for their employees.   The trainer seeks to ensure employees understand the organization's mission and values, they also strive to improve the productivity and efficiency of the workforce.   Average salaries were reported by PayScale.com in January 2011 based on a survey of 556 people in this occupation.

The average salary ranges from $46,426 to $70,780 per year.   Some employers offer other compensation such as bonuses and profit sharing.   Average annual bonuses range from $1,049 to $5,042 and average profit sharing from $1,628 to $5,042 per year.   Of those working full-time for an employer, 89 percent reported receiving health care benefits and paid time off.

Although some corporate trainers are full time employees of organizations, others are   self-employed or work on a contractual basis.   Those working as contractors earn average annual salaries from $60,028 to $91,010 and those self-employed earn average salaries from $36,973 to $27,500 per year.   Of those employed full-time reporting their wages to PayScale, most work in industries such as financial services, educational institutions, information technology, health care and insurance.   The highest wages were reported in the information technology services industry, where corporate trainers earn average yearly salaries from $48,648 to $71,244.  Educational institutions pay average salaries ranging from $45,033 to $65,487 per year, and the health care industry pays average salaries ranging from $46,423 to $67,574 per year.
