How to write a Training Plan
We are sometimes asked to produce a training plan for our department or team.. where do we start?
Having completed a Training Needs Analysis (TNA), the resulting information can be formulated into a document as outlined below:
REPORT/ PLAN TITLE __________________
Intro, purpose, overview, scope
2. Skills Needed
ABC personnel require the following skills:
- Familiarity with….
- Understanding of …..

3. Training Requirements
ABC personnel are required to complete the following training courses:
- Level 1 staff…..
- Level 2 staff….
- Level 3 staff ….
- Specific skill requirements by person are shown in the training needs analysis table
4. Training Records
Training records and dates completed for current employees will be maintained in three places:
Level 1 staff ….
Level 2 staff….

The Training Plan Matrix shows an example format for maintaining near-term Training requirements, training records, and. training schedules.
