Leahy & Associates, Inc. will be offering “The In-House Trainer Workshop,” April 13-15 in Boulder, Colo. As many operators do some level of in-house training, an in-house trainer is a key member of the staff. While a necessary part of an operation, there are risks, responsibilities, and industry requirements to be aware of.
The In-House Trainer Workshop will focus on the following areas:
Your qualifications as an in-house trainer:
- overview and training philosophy
- ACCT Standards: a description of the scope of training
- the Qualified Course Professional (QCP): Trainer
- trainer’s portfolio
- the trainer’s development path
The structures/systems you will need to develop:
- Course Operations Manual
- Training Outline/Manual
- job descriptions: student belayer, adult belayer, L1, L2, CCM, director/supervisor
- staffing structures for daily operations
- trainee pre-qualification: whom SHOULD you train?
- exclusions: whom and what you SHOULD NOT train
Considerations for your administration:
- time inventory to accomplish training
- objectives: minimum hours attended, documentation of content and trainees
- training/performance standards for your program
- in-house testing/test protocol
- liability, lawyers, and insurance: a brief look at your exposure
Participants must be at least 21 years of age and must own the 8th edition ACCT standards. Participants must have read chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the standards prior to the start of the course.
The 30-hour course costs $695. Discounts are available to early bird registrations.
