On a practical level, the best training is to successfully complete a "term paper" or some other long-term writing project.

On a technical level, try to find a technical writing certificate program that includes a course in proposal writing. Ideally the course is taught by a practitioner. When I was in the tech writing certificate program at Cal State Fullerton, I had the good fortune to take a course from a woman who worked for several years as a proposal writer for a large defense contractor.
