Abstract. The main task of professional pedagogy is the training of specialists capable of ensuring safe and effective operation of a particular enterprise. This task is not new, but it requires constant attention owing to the rapid development of the most sectors of the economy, the need for constant updating of technical information, due to its rapid obsolescence, limits the possibilities of self-education in the field of professional pedagogy and psychology. Currently, technical universities are almost half staffed by professors and teachers who do not have pedagogical education. In addition, technical universities are increasingly attracting specialists from industries, those who can really share their experience and knowledge, but they also do not have pedagogical education. To some extent, this problem is solved by postgraduate education. But psychological and pedagogical training of postgraduate students and applicants is often optional.
In scientific and pedagogical literature the professional education of a teacher in postgraduate education is considered as a process of development of certain competencies, providing the possibility of high-quality implementation of the educational process. At the same time, external and internal factors, such as frequently changing Federal educational standards, social events, various regulations, etc. determine the need for the training of a teacher with not only special knowledge, but also a specialist with creative potential and striving for continuous professional self-improvement.
The article deals with the issues related to professional development of teachers who do not have pedagogical education, their adaptive readiness for pedagogical activity. The necessity of such training is determined and its main directions are shown.

Keywords: pedagogical education, professional adaptation, situational and functional approach, professional development
