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.

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!

I would only include this training on your resume if it helps in providing experience in the jobs you are applying for.

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!
