Leadership training is an intensified, evolutionary, and continuous process designed to offer local leaders the opportunity and assistance in developing strategies suitable for effective representation in their local. It provides the Union Representative with the skills necessary in meeting the needs and expectations of members, since it is often the Union Representative who is the first person a member seeks for advice, consultation, and guidance.

Through leadership training, Union Representatives acquire knowledge and become familiar with resources available to the union member, and therefore, are able to council them and/or make appropriate recommendations for action. Leadership training offers Union Representatives the opportunity to become proficient representatives of the membership by providing them with specific and concentrated training sessions to learn and improve the skills necessary for successful performance of the responsibilities of a Union Representative.
