Scott Dickson (Low) says
A training managers job involves reviewing development work completed by others, to ensure that it is factually correct and contextually relevant as it relates to the learner persona and the adjacent-taught material. Training managers also deal directly with human content creators which requires experience dealing with a "whole-person".

Several companies are developing teacher-bots using "deep fake" humans to present lessons and machine learning to improve teaching techniques and allow one-to-one education. It's not happening overnight, but in 20 years many types of classes will be automated.

Been in this field for over a decade and the wage listed here is much too high. The field is saturated with teachers trying to find a different career. A great training manager will use automation to their advantage.

I think training is something that is not suited to automation. Self learning for machines makes sense, but what to teach people is more or an art form than a science
