Certification 1. Commit Approved Trainers

Approved Trainers

What is an Approved Trainer?

Approved (or Accredited) Trainers are certified to lead introductory trainings on Client Protection Principles to a wide array of audience. Approved trainers may also conduct deep-dive trainings on particular principles, practices (e.g., creating a code of conduct), or by operational areas (based on Smart Operations). Approved Trainers are independent from The Smart Campaign, but requests for Smart Assessor Trainings and Client Protection TA Trainings should be directed to the Smart Campaign.

Approved Trainers maintain their accreditation by completing the following set of responsibilities:

Profile of an Approved Trainer:

  • Previous training experience: facilitation of at least 6 training programs over a time period of 2 years
  • Familiarity with Adult Learning Principles and Experiential Learning Cycle
  • Excellent knowledge of client protection standards, indicators and assessment guidance (ideally having participated in a Smart Campaign assessor training and/or participated in at least 2 assessments)
  • Good understanding of the Smart Certification program
  • A proven track record in microfinance
  • Excellent communication and soft skills

 

Responsibilities of an Approved Trainer:

  • Inform Smart Campaign of any training requests (even if not confirmed)
  • Use most updated training materials, to be furnished by Smart Campaign upon confirmation of training
  • Inform Smart Campaign of any suggested changes to materials
  • Provide final agenda, participant list and summary of participant evaluation forms to Smart Campaign within one week of end of training.
