Training for a job on my resume?

I was hired for a teaching position in March and I completed all the training, but then all the in-person classes were cancelled and they didn't have enough online students for me to teach online. I still technically work there and I'm waiting for classes to return to in-person.
Should I include this on my resume? The training was around 24 hours and quite hands on so I think I learned a lot.

Hi Emma, I would add the training part on your resume, part of your Skills / Competencies (or similar) section.

Holly’s Answer

Everything you learn is worth noting. The key thing to remember is that you might be asked to indicate a key take-away. Also, maybe you could highlight something important you learned or how it prepared you for a future position.

Holly recommends the following next steps:

Go back and look at your notes or any handouts you had from the learning
Identify 1-2 important things you learned
Think about how you would express that during an interview
Ask yourself if there is a way to summarize that on your resume
Take a moment to congratulate yourself on learning something and thinking about how it will benefit you in the future!

Hi Emma,
Sure, include it. It would also help to show how the training provides you with the background to do the job(s) you are applying for.
I hope you can teach an online class!

Hi Emma

I would recommend you to Include the training on your resume under training part; however you would provide additional details about the training if the vacancy you're applying for is related to the training.

Margie’s Answer

Emma, you certainly should include this. You should list it as part of your "education," which can include job-related training like this. You can also list the skills you've gained from this training. It also sounds as though this is your current position. If that is true, you should show it as your current employment.

One quick note of caution: In today's world, it's easy for employers to check your facts and may eliminate you from consideration if the facts don't match your resume. It's never a good idea to leave anything off, but you can certainly think about how you position your experience to highlight your skills.
