Standards for building training curriculum

Standards for building training curriculum:

Training curriculum is the mainstay and backbone of the training process, and no training program can achieve the quality of its performance independently from taking care of it and all its aspects and disciplines. It is considered as a requirement and an indicator of the high performance of the trainer; being guarantees the quality of the experiences that trainees should acquire according to their characteristics and in light of scientific and professional International Standard.

Therefore, a good training curriculum that designed according to the MIT system is a set of Standards that the training curriculum designer should adhere to and is divided into general Standards and special Standards, as follows:

General standards of the training curriculum:

  1. Showing the importance of training and allows increase the experience of trainees.
  2. The ability to link the trainee's knowledge, trends and skills in the training class and the performance in the work environment.
  3. Avoid repetition resulting from multiple levels of the training program.
  4. Taking into consideration the characteristics of the trainees and satisfying their desires and requirements.
  5. Information deep understanding.
  6. Qualitative stability in training outcomes.
  7. Dependence on integrated training experience.
  8. Pursuing the integration of the trainee personality, and increasing their experience of achievement.
  9. The enriched diversity of the training activities.
  10. Vertical and horizontal correlation of training outcomes.
  11. Increase the correlation between trainees inside and outside the training class.
  12. Reducing the useless quantity (content) provided to trainees and concentrating on the quality.
  13. Diversity in training methods and its suitability for trainees.
  14. Multiple use of different sources for gaining experiences.
  15. Accuracy in determining time and duration for sessions and training activities.
