IT Trainers are responsible for training people how to use their computers for different purposes. They are technical experts with excellent communication skills that aid them to share their knowledge with other workers.
IT Trainers are either employed internally to train employees on how to use certain applications and computer systems or go from organisation to organisation on a contract basis. The majority of IT Trainers tend to specialise in a particular technical area, but some freelance trainers will share knowledge in multiple areas of IT.
IT Trainers usually focus on one of two main areas; IT professional skills and user skills. Training for professionals tends to be a lot more technical and involves teaching experts about new skills, such as security measures, project management or new programming languages.
On the other hand, user skill training involves teaching non-technical professionals the more basic computer skills, such as using a new desktop application or how to use database systems. This training can be delivered either face-to-face or via virtual seminars. A large part of the role includes devising and developing training programmes and other learning resources associated with the programme.
