Nine new trainers added to PNGCJE’s Faculty of Trainers

The Papua New Guinea Centre for Judicial Excellence (PNGCJE) has facilitated its second Training of Trainers (ToT) course for this year (2021) which graduated nine new trainers into the PNGCJE Faculty of Trainers.

The first ToT training was held in May, which saw 17 officers of the National Judicial Staff Service (NJSS) attending and receiving their ToT Certificate and becoming recognized professional trainers.

The nine new trainers have been added to the list with the second training on September 06-10, raising the total to 23 new trainers trained and certified by the PNGCJE in 2021. A total of 17 participants were initially selected to undertake the course, however, only 11 attended. From the 11, only 9 completed the course and were issued their ToT Certificate.

Most of the participants are skilled professionals in their respective fields, but they need training on how they can effectively transfer their knowledge and skills to other employees in their line of work. The ToT course has proven useful in outlining standard practical steps and procedures trainers can use to design and deliver training programs.

“I have been a trainer for many years,” says Deputy Chief of Security Mr. Eddie Kavina.

“I have so much experience in my field and I run trainings based on that, but this ToT course has made everything look so simple and more organized. For instance, I have no idea about session plans until I took this course and now, I realize the importance of having session plans of my training sessions. It makes everything look simple and organized.

Many topics were covered, including Curriculum Design (Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes base), Training Techniques and Methodologies, Learning Styles and Training Cycle, etc. Effective Communication Skills and Effective Time Management Skills were offered as complements of the training to adequately equip the participants.
