Q: What is recurrent training?  

Recurrent training is training that is to be reviewed in a specific time frame. It is not dependent on the trainees’ abilities or current knowledge level. It is generally calendar based in some way.

For instance, especially in certain industries like healthcare and aviation where human safety is involved, organizations will institute a policy of recurrent training in order to keep employee skill abilities at a maximum level. This kind of training is also called recurrent vocational training.

Recurrent employee training is often found in middle management ranks of many organizations as well. Among the most common instances of recurrent training is CPR training.

Corporate recurrent training is accomplished in different settings. It can be outsourced to a dedicated classroom or done by a visiting instructor or a performed by instructors from a corporate training and organizational development department.
