Attending NIOSH Basic Train the Trainer Programme
Beginning June 27th, 2011, I’ll be attending the Basic Train-the-Trainer programme organised by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Malaysia.
NIOSH Malaysia is a company limited by guarantee owned by the Government of Malaysia. “In the words of the Minister of Human Resources, Malaysia, NIOSH would be a "critical catalyst" in the promotion of occupational safety and health that would also serve as the "backbone" to create a "self-regulating occupational safety and health culture" in Malaysia.”
NIOSH Malaysia conducts regular Occupational Safety and Health-related trainings around the country. As the “training arm” of the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), IMHO, the courses offered by NIOSH are recognised by that department.
About the Basic Train the Trainer Programme
The course aims to provide participants with the competency to gain skills in
- the setting of a training environment;
- the design and delivery of simple training sessions; and
- the basic assessment of learning.
The foundations that this course is built on ensures that the trainers are able to provide their trainees with quality learning outcomes.
The learning outcomes are:
- Work effectively in vocational education and training;
- Foster and promote an inclusive learning culture;
- Ensure a healthy and safe learning environment;
- Use training packages to meet client needs;
- Provide training through instructions and demonstrations of work skills;
- Plan and organise assessment; and
- Assess competence.
Looking forward to June 27th…
By the end of this 4-day course (30 June 2011), I would have obtained the necessary training & certification to become certified Trainer.
