Lesson 6: Matching the trainer to the training task

Do they have the right workplace competencies?

No single trainer can expect to be able to do all the training that is needed in a workplace.

The training matrix for National Transport Services lists important workplace competencies and shows who has completed training in each of them and when. The advantage of knowing when is that you can pick the most up-to-date person.
