The rate of floating training programmes among male and female citizens in the informal sector of the economy called for the investigation into the nexus between expertise of facilitators and impact of training brokerage in Ondo State, Nigeria. The descriptive survey research design method was adopted, using population sample of training participants and organizers/facilitators in Ondo State. Two instruments design by the researchers, “questionnaire on training brokerage for participants (QTBP)” for clientele and “questionnaire on training brokerage for organizers and facilitators (QTBP)” for organizers and facilitators (r=0.81 and 0.75), using Pearson Product Moment Correlation of test retest method were use for data collection. Data were analyzed inferentially. Findings revealed that training brokers’ qualifications influenced clientele acquisition of knowledge (f=494.117, p<0.05) and competence of brokers significantly influences learning impartation at training centres (f=0.822, p<0.05).  Based on the findings, it was concluded that clientele patronizing private individuals most times do not have value for their money as brokers are more profit oriented than learners’ gain. Hence, it was suggested that the department of adult education in recognized universities should take up training brokerage programmes from the profit oriented private individual to restore it lost glory and develop young vibrant entrepreneurs.
