•Download paper nomination forms to include with training handouts distributed during training sessions.
•For individuals involved in Train-the-Trainer programs, consider nominating one of your customers.

•Select the correct category for the nominee. Professional trainers are those employed by training companies or divisions of companies primarily engaged in training. Corporate trainers may conduct in-house training only or may serve customers for the industry, but whose employer is primarily engaged in some other activity, such as manufacturing, distribution, crane rental, etc.

•One Corporate and one Professional winner will be granted scholarships to be used for educational purposes. Scholarships may be used by the recipient for train-the-trainer courses, to earn a certification, or to attend an industry conference. Or the winners may donate their scholarship to a student of their choice for similar training or educational purposes.
