While training is an art and every instructor will have his / her own teaching style, there are some common methods of training. These techniques are widely practiced in all industries as styles remain the same irrespective of the content. Presenters need to choose styles as per the subject and need of the moment. An analysis of the objective of training and assessment of the target audience can help you make this decision.

There are broadly 3 styles of training:

• Cognitive Approach

• Behavioral Method

• Management Development Method

In the Cognitive technique, it is more about imparting theoretical information to the attendees. You would generally see instructors explaining ways of doing something and demonstrating relationships among concepts. The several forms of this approach include:

• Lectures

• Demonstrations

• Discussions

• Computer Based Training (CBT) - CBT further includes 3 styles of training - Intelligent Tutorial System (ITS), Programmed Instruction (PI) and Virtual Reality.

Coming to the next method, the Behavioral technique of training concentrates on the practical aspect of concepts. This kind of instruction helps the trainees to behave in real fashion and thus facilitates better understanding and effective skill development.

Below are the several methods of Behavioral training:

• Games and Simulations

• Behavior-Modeling

• Business Games

• Case Studies

• Equipment Stimulators

• In-Basket Technique

• Role Plays

Another technique is the Management Development method. This style is adopted with the objective of building futures and concentrates on the education of employees. With the help of reasoning, this kind of training aims to create better performers in the work environment.

Management development method is further divided into two parts - On-the-job training and Off- the-job training.

On-the-job style of training aims to build abilities amongst professionals. The four ways of such training style include Coaching, Mentoring, Job Rotation and Job Instruction Technique (JIT). This technique is majorly adopted in smaller organizations where more knowledgeable and experienced employees impart training to staff with lesser knowhow. This kind of training is usually informal and doesn't have any set objectives in the beginning.

Coming to Off- the-job training, there are several models under this style. These include Sensitivity Training, Transactional Analysis, Straight Lectures / Lectures and Simulation Exercises.

It is crucial for all instructors to be acquainted to these styles so that while conducting sessions, they can decide about which technique to adopt. Trainings happen in all domains and industries. It is an inevitable part of all sectors as the need to grow and develop arises for every individual sometime or the other. Some examples include Oracle training, personality development training, basic computer training, etiquette training, systems up-gradation training etc. Depending on the nature and subject matter, instructors can decides which style suits them the best.
