Competency-Based Training Needs Analysis


Date Q1: 6 – 8 March 2023

Date Q4: 21 – 23 November 2023

Mode: Remote Online Learning
Certificate: SMR HR Group Sdn. Bhd.

Our three-day workshop is designed to help training professionals;

  • Collect and analyze relevant data to develop a training plan/schedule
  • Prepare and present Training Needs Analysis (TNA) reports
  • Engage stakeholders for successful implementations. 


Training is about helping people learn so they can do their jobs to the required standards. However, often training fails to address the real individual, occupational, departmental, or organisational needs. One of the major factors contributing to this situation is that training workshops are not based on business needs or mission-critical needs. Training should be based on a systematic assessment of the current and future needs of organizations. 

Designed For:

This workshop is designed for those whose roles require them to conduct systematic TNA, such as:

  • Trainers/lecturers
  • HR practitioners
  • Line managers/Executives/Officers
  • Instructional designers
  • Administrators

Learning Approach:

The program will use a range of interactive activities – group and individual exercises, case studies, and discussions. There will also be formal inputs of theory and models. The aim is to provide a focus for action that will maximize learning.
