Purpose

Training as stated elsewhere is an integral function of management.  Whatever the nature of the organization, there is always need for training of one kind or another.  The nature of an organization may be a large enterprise comprising of many employees.  In such cases training is institutionalized and structured as a training wing within the organization within such an organization, there will usually be a number of Instructors who will work under a training officer.  Other organizations are made of only a sizeable number of employees who do not warrant the establishment of a training wing.  In such situations, such organizations always take advantages of institutions and consultancies who offer training services.  Still there are other organizations, those whose core business is training.  These organizations have within their staff large numbers of personnel who require instructor training.
