If you’re planning on expanding your firm’s knowledge base, or simply brushing up on the latest developments and a few fundamentals, it’s worth spending that little extra to ensure that the personal injury training your staff receive is top quality, relevant and, most importantly, current. However, there are many more factors to consider than simply how much money it costs.

The very first thing you should do, even before you begin looking for legal training providers, is spend some time considering the exact needs of your firm in precise detail. This will enable you to more closely match the requirements of your business with the offerings of individual training providers.

There are two parts to finding the right personal injury training for your firm: finding the right training provider, and finding the best course.

What to look for in legal training providers

When choosing a firm to provide your staff with the training they need, you should adopt an attitude similar to the one your clients do when they are looking for a solicitor. Questions such as ‘how long has the training provider been established’, ‘what are other people saying about them’, and ‘how qualified/experienced are they at what they do?’ are all relevant.

As well as examining the company itself, you should also look at the specific individuals who will be training your people. Are they seasoned legal professionals with many years of relevant personal injury experience and successful cases behind them, or are they deskbound theoreticians with plenty of book-smart knowledge but little practical experience?

The best place to find out about a training provider is not necessarily their own website, but on a Google search of their company name. Be sure to check out the Internet chatter or testimonials about the provider before committing to anything.

What to look for in a personal injury training course

First and foremost, you should look at what specific topics are covered by the training course offered. Clearly if your firm is inexperienced in personal injury cases you will want something which takes a broad view of the field, but also zeroes in on the details.

You should also look at the teaching methods employed. ‘Hands on’ courses that are more interactive in nature can be far more effective than simply sitting taking notes. The best training course is one that enables your staff to make mistakes within the safe environment of the training room, rather than in your office at a later date.

The more interesting and engaging the course is, the better your staff will assimilate the subject matter. You should also look at whether there is a formal qualification awarded at the end, and if so it a widely recognised one, and does it count towards CPD.

In-house personal injury training

Finally you should look at whether the training can be carried out in your own offices. In-house training can produce a more comfortable environment conducive to learning, and can also save a great deal of time and money that would otherwise be spent on travel expenses.
