If you are a Trainer and also specialised in the IT Sector then it would be good to combine both of these areas to be an IT Trainer. As a Trainer, you could be training internal staff or more likely you will run courses and train companies who are interested in learning all aspects of IT. You will need to be well versed and experienced in IT to be able to teach other people to use the areas that you are training on.
As a Trainer, you will need to be patient and good at explaining things to people. You will need to be able to train a range of different people sometimes at different levels.
