Milestone 2: design a training program for new recruits or existing
Training for new recruits is important because even though they may be experienced with their knowledge and past background in performing the job functions, incorporating them to align with how their new company wants the job performed can be critical. There may be specific ways that a job or task is to be performed.
Existing employee training programs may be necessary for changes within a company such as the adoption of new technology, new processes, or even recurrent training for skills or knowledge. For example, DOT requires 90 hours of annual substance awareness training for all supervisors who may come in contact with DOT certified employees (such as truck drivers).
For this milestone, you will reflect back on the position description you wrote or analyzed in Milestone 1 and either describe how you would train new hires or explain how you would approach designing trainings for existing employees in the position.
