There are a number of training specialist careers available for those who would like to help others improve their lives or their businesses. Personal trainers generally instruct others in how to eat well, exercise, or train for a specific event. When it comes to business training, there are several different categories as well. If you are interested in training specialist careers, you will first need to decide on what type of trainer you would like to be.

A corporate trainer instructs both leadership and employees in what is known as “soft skills.” Soft skills may seem like a non-specific term in regard to training specialist careers, but it generally indicates such things as working well with others, organizational skills, time management, using appropriate communication tools, and teaching employees to become more motivated or dependable.

Leadership training is another important service in training specialist careers. Not everyone is an effective leader, but many people can be taught to become one. By creating an environment of trust and support with those whom one hopes to lead, and utilizing other tools, a true leader can motivate his or her entire force. Other tools include team building, developing mutual respect, leading by example, and such things as giving effective presentations.


Customer service training teaches that happy customers are much more likely to become repeat customers and to bring in other customers. It also instructs in ways to ensure that customers will be happy. Friend to friend advertising can be as important as advertising campaigns. People like to share their experiences, both good and bad; therefore, a company needs its customers’ experiences with, and thus words about, the company to be positive. Effective customer service training plays an important role in this process.

Sales isn’t for everyone. Generally, salespeople should have dynamic personalities, and this is true of those entering many training specialist careers as well. Aside from the ability to draw people in, sales people should also have an in depth knowledge and a passion concerning the products or services they hope to sell. They must also know how to close a deal and training can help teach these and other qualities of a good salesperson.

If you are considering one of the many training specialist careers, keep in mind that there are many and varied courses are available for all types of personal and business training. You may need to narrow it down to a specific field, although in some cases, training courses may overlap a bit, such as sales and customer service.
