Trainer Performance Monitoring and Assessment (TPMA)

Why Assess Trainers?        

Trainers may know their subjects inside out but that doesn’t mean they are going to be effective communicators. For a training manager, knowing that all trainers have reached an industry-recognised level of competency means that quality is assured across all courses.

Adopting TPMA as a standard assessment and monitoring program gives several benefits:

The quality of all training is maintained to the highest standards.

Course delegates acquire a sound learning experience, highly relevant to their respective workplaces.

Trainers become more confident in their abilities to train.

The consistency of approach and adherence to an industry-recognised certification can help win business both internally and externally.
