What does a Training Coordinator do?

Training Coordinators identify training needs and map out learning and development plans for individuals, teams, and organizations. Training Coordinators put together training curriculum and facilitate training sessions. Training Coordinators analyze training progress and suggest additional training modules, as needed. Training Coordinators make sure their clients continuously learn new skills and partner with vendors to provide special curriculum.

Training Coordinator job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimize your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialized, consider including the specialization in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

Examples of Training Coordinator job titles

  • Training Coordinator
  • Supervisor (Training and Development)
  • Training Coordinator (with DME experience)
  • Training Coordinator (Part-Time)
  • Training and Development Coordinator

Training Coordinator job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Training Coordinator job summary

Our private and commercial security firm has an immediate need for a Training Coordinator. The successful candidate will train not only our in-house employees, but also our customers and contractors when appropriate. We’re looking for a self-starting professional who can jump in with both feet and take over the training schedule and curriculum. The Training Coordinator will coordinate with our HR department and our employee management crew to ensure all jobs are fully staffed with trained, experienced employees. A background in the security industry is a must.

Training Coordinator responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organization and who the job reports to.

Examples of Training Coordinator responsibilities

  • Create a training schedule that includes all areas of practice, including commercial and residential security
  • Build rapport with trainees and encourage them to develop trust in one another so they can rely on each other in the field
  • Onboard new hires and train them in our policies and procedures
  • Organize training sessions with customers in 1- and 3-day intensives
  • Research and evaluate training software programs to automate the administrative functions of the department

Training Coordinator qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Training Coordinator skills

  • High school diploma/GED required (Bachelor’s degree preferred)
  • 5+ years’ experience in private or commercial security industry
  • Familiarity with industry best practices and standards
  • Ability to translate complex problems and concepts in training
