Challenges a Training Business faces in enrolment management

Segregating between Corporate and Retail enrolment

Segregating between corporate and retail enrolment is a big task for training provider companies. A particular training business deals with a significant number of enrolments per day which are of different types. As such, it becomes quite difficult to sort them properly. 

Often for a corporate enrolment, a particular engagement deals with several enrolments. The person contacting the training business may not be the one enrolling. This makes it quite challenging to manage the information of the enrolments properly and segregate them in a proper fashion. For a retail enrolment, the person contacting the training business often becomes an enrolment. Manual operations can make the segregation of these enrolments quite time taking. There can also be sheer mismanagement of the information and details pertaining to manual operations. This poses a big challenge for the training businesses. 

Also, for any type of enrolment, quotations along invoice tracking and important follow ups are extremely necessary. Particularly for corporate enrolments, it becomes important for the training business to track these details properly as the business deals with several enrolments under a single engagement. As such, any sort of incorrect segregation can result in serious challenges for the engagement as well as the training business. 

Managing Multiple enrolment from One Contact

Multiple enrolments are often big concerns to deal with. With so many enrolments to deal with under multiple enrolments, crucial details can often get missed out by the training business owners. This can result in incorrect details getting registered. It can also get the engagement cancelled. 

With multiple enrolment comes management of multiple batches, timings, details etc. under one single contact. Manual operations with pen and paper can often result in the information getting lost. Business owners can write down the information on a sheet and lose track of them easily. They can also lose track of a single enrolment from multiple enrolments. Multiple enrolments also make it quite challenging for the business owners to follow up with them swiftly, deal with various tasks and meetings and so on.

Tracking each enrolment properly is another crucial part of multiple enrolments. Due to various other crucial business processes, a training business might not find enough time to track each enrolment in a proper fashion. As such, the training business will be left with very little information regarding the enrolments which can result in future operational challenges.

Managing Batches

For training providing businesses, it is extremely crucial to effectively manage the batches. Plenty of enrolments can create challenges with batch management. It gets quite strenuous to keep a track of all the trainees of each batch in a single spreadsheet. 

Updating the details of each batch properly is another big challenge. Batch management also leads to challenges with timings, courses, instructors of each batch and so on. A single training business handles several batches every day. As such, information about the timings, courses or other details of each batch can easily get mixed up. This can result in the students getting incorrect information. Also, it gets quite difficult to sort and track the batches manually. The entire process becomes extremely time-taking and can also result in serious errors. 

Challenges can also arise with the trainee capacity of each batch. If not paid attention properly, a training business can overbook a single batch. This can result in trainee details getting lost or the trainees not getting tracked properly. Overbooking a classroom training also puts the batch instructor under pressure. Since the instructor starts dealing with a greater number of students due to overbooking, crowded classes and lesser instructors can cause problems in student learning.

Managing enrolment details

Enrolment details form the base of a proper engagement for a training business. Training businesses often use spreadsheets to store details of each enrolment. This makes it extremely difficult to update the information whenever required. Incorrect information can easily get registered for a particular enrolment. Storing the information in a spreadsheet or file also makes it difficult to sort it properly. Sorting the data manually takes up a lot more time and accurate results are not always guaranteed. This poses a big challenge for the training business. 

Enrolment details also help to provide other crucial information about the students to the training business. Training businesses can learn about the career of the student, his/her aims, reasons for enrolling with the training business and much more. This helps the company to follow up with them with potential and crucial information whenever required. However, incorrect enrolment details can result in all these details getting wrongly registered or mixed up. This makes it extremely challenging to follow up with the students properly. Understanding the requirements of the students also becomes a huge challenge. 

Certificate generation at the end of training

Certificates are the acknowledgement a student seeks. After the completion of every course, a certificate of recognition is provided to the candidate which helps to showcase their expertise and training.

Most training businesses deal with the challenge of designing the certificates. Certificate design generation manually is extremely time-taking. Also, it gets difficult to design and generate certificates for all the different courses that an enrolment might register for. As such, certificate generation has always been a big challenge for training businesses.

There can also arise issues when the training business gets candidates who come up with concerns of losing the certificates. Preparing another certificate after their request also becomes quite challenging for the training businesses.

Since training provider businesses work with several courses and students at a given time, designing and generating certificates for each course and student can get quite repetitive and boring. Manual certificate designing can also result in proper details not getting updated properly which is a big challenge.
