However, not all of these highly qualified and experienced professionals are qualified to conduct engaging and result-oriented training sessions for adults. For an experienced professional to become a sought-after and much-admired trainer, he needs expert guidance, and ‘Train the Trainer’ courses are becoming increasingly popular to cater to the needs of these professionals.
