Training and development is an essential part of many companies and organizations. Training and development managers are trained professionals that are responsible for planning, directing, and organizing the training and development tasks and staff of their employer.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a training and development manager do?

Training and development managers direct and oversee training and development programs. They strive to create programs that enable employees to achieve their highest potential, increase performance, enhance work quality and productivity, and build employee loyalty to the organization. They identify the educational needs of the organization and employees and develop training strategies to meet those needs. They create testing and evaluation procedures, personal development classes, and technical training sessions. They also evaluate the effectiveness of training programs and provide improvement recommendations. Training and development managers often conduct orientation sessions and set up on the job training for new employees.

What kind of training does a training and development manager need?

Training and development managers typically need at least a bachelor degree in training and development, human resources, or other related field. Prospective training and development managers typically complete courses in business administration, human resources, training and development, industrial psychology, principles of management, and statistics. Many training and development managers begin their careers in entry-level positions and advance to management as they gain skills and experience. Many training and development managers gain professional certification from the American Society for Training and Development Certification Institute. Training and development managers must stay up to date on the current advancements in the field and often complete continuing education and attend workshops and seminars throughout their careers.

What are the prospects for a career as a training and development manager?

Employment of training and development managers is expected to grow faster than average for all professions, increasing 16% from 2006 to 2016 (1). Technological advances and increased demand for improved training programs will drive job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be good, especially for training and development managers with extensive experience and professional certifications. Many job openings will arise from the need to replace training and development managers that retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do training and development managers make?

As of December 2009, training and development managers with less than 1 year experience earn average annual salaries between $37,500 and $71,603. Those with 1 to 4 years experience earn average annual salaries between $42,009 and $65,345 (2).

A career as a training and development manager is a great choice for people with a strong interest in coordinating the training and development activities of an organization. Training and development managers must have excellent leadership and teaching skills and ability to relate to a variety of employees. Creative thinking, good problem solving skills, and good decision-making are essential characteristics. Training and development managers must have excellent communication and the ability to work as part of a team.
