Is there a word in English for a person who conducts trainings with a use of some already written programs?

It's not about program made by him - he just realizes outer standard programs. And it's also not about qualification or junior role. It could be a very professional person. In Russian, there is word "ведущий" for such meaning. But in this particular connotation it does not mean neither: presenter, principal, anchorman, master, narrator, etc. It is close to "conducting" - a person who conducts trainings or conductor of trainings. But if I google "conductor of trainings" I would not find many examples of such phraseme.


1) It could be "Conductor of training" - it seems to be ok unlike "Conductor of trainings"

2) It could be "Training facilitator" but I am not sure about it. Thanks to Graffito

3) And yes, I do try to differentiate between "Training Program Developer" and "Trainer". Thanks to Jim. And I'd like to show that both roles were taken. At the same time context implies that "Trainer" is also "Training Program Developer" so I should find some options.

    If the person is actually doing the training, consider instructor. If the person is just guiding people through a self-directed system, consider mentor or proctor. A docent could probably be used, or more informally, shepherd.

  • Nice, but I need to show some differencies on the way. Like: "assistant trainer, conductor of trainings, trainer". And this activity means training some skills, it's not only about knowledge.

  • Instructor sounds good, but people need to get their own experience.

  • Maybe 'Guide', or 'Course Leader' - both suggest that the person is taking their students along a predetermined path, probably not of their own making.

It seems that answer would be "conductor of training" but not "conductor of trainings". But I'm not sure.
