An Investigation of Trainer Certification (Preparation) Programs in the Private Sector.
Leach, James A.
As part of a larger 2-year study of the nature of excellent vocational educators who work in business and industry, this paper describes what has been learned from a number of case studies about trainer "certification" (preparation) programs in business and industry. More specifically, the paper describes the processes used to certify trainers and knowledge and skills taught in certification programs conducted in five companies headquartered in Illinois. The companies include Deere and Company, Commonwealth Edison Company--Production Training Center, Arthur Andersen and Company, Bellcore TEC, and Allstate Insurance Company. For each training company, the report provides a company profile and a description of the trainer preparation/certification process. The report also identifies competencies taught in the company-sponsored trainer certification programs and summarizes the processes used in these programs. (KC)
