Looking for a quick way to uncover your employees’ most critical training needs? Introducing the Training Needs Assessment Tool (T-NAT), a quick means of learning your employees’ most critical training needs. Through a simple, 5-step process, T-NAT helps individuals compare their present skill and knowledge levels with those required by their jobs — and prepare an action plan for improvement.


The Training Needs Assessment (T-NAT) is precisely what the name implies - a vehicle for analyzing and documenting an individual's training requirements as compared to his or her present knowledge or skill level for performing a specific job. The goal of the analysis is to identify an individual's training needs and develop an action plan for satisfying those needs. The T-NAT provides an easily understood format that allows managers and employees to compare their perceptions and develop a priority list of needed training activities.


T-NAT is versatile, it can be used for:


  • On-the-job training by supervisors

  • New employee orientation

  • Career development or outplacement counseling

  • Follow-up to performance appraisals

  • Part of a larger training needs assessment program
