When we talk about skill development and vocational education, training becomes very important. And trainers are crucial to any kind of training program. Vocational trainers make a huge difference as they impart skills and knowledge and leave a lasting positive impact on their trainees’ lives. Therefore, Training of Trainers (ToT) and Training of Master Trainers (ToMT) becomes vital for any organization or academic institution. This helps them in consistently re-evaluating their skills and performance statistics and looking at ways to improve.
