Yes and some do, especially those with large training departments, however, there are some things to consider before you embark on this road:

  • Do I have employees suitably qualified to conduct training? eg. Training qualification, qualified in the areas they are going to train.
  • Will my employees listen and take the training seriously when delivered by a colleague?
  • Who is going to develop our courses?
  • How can I ensure that they contain accurate and appropriate information and they are kept current?
  • How am I going to record each training event?
  • How am I going to prove that the learning was absorbed by the delegates?
  • What additional paperwork do I need to develop?
  • Who is going to be responsible for maintaining our training records?
  • Is this training going to be sufficient under Law and for our clients, customers and insurers?

The bottom line is that you need to do as much as is reasonably practicable in order to ensure the safety of you employees in the workplace. If there is an accident then your actions, including training records, will be examined and if found deficient could lead to serious consequences for your company.

The beauty of dealing with a professional training company like Providence Training is that these are all taken care of for you.
