Can I get banned for using a trainer in SINGLE PLAYER?

Hello everyone,just joined the forums and this is my first post
I was wondering if I can get VAC-Banned from a game's multiplayer for using trainers for said game's SINGLE PLAYER part.
Greetings everyone by the way ^^.

What game are you using it for?. becarfull what you download some trainers carry viruses.

if it is for a single player only game chances are that it will not carry a ban.

Use any such tool at your own risk.

* your definition of 'single player' may not be correct. For example, playing by yourself in your own TF2 server is not 'single player' even if you're not impacting other users.Dungeon Defender servers are ALL protected by VAC. Even in Open mode. Open is not a 'cheat free for all' mode.

* Trainers may have all sorts of horrible viruses

* Leaving a trainer or memory editor running while joining a VAC server may trigger a VAC ban

I know the site I am downloading from(not sure if I can post links or names) so 100% sure it's virus free(ok 99.(9)%,Just because I am paranoid).
So I want to use them for the single player part of games(some of them do have a multiplayer part but I won't be using them for that(IIRC the trainers I want to use are actually blocked,so you can't use them in multiplayer anyway),so just wondering.
Thanks for the fast reply

No,it is single player(A.K.A. me vs.AI,for example just cause2,Sup com 2) etc.
So I won't be having an advantage over any other player.
About the virus part,see above

Are any of the games you want to use a trainer in actually VAC protected? You can't get VAC banned for cheating in a non-VAC game. (Although, you might want to be careful not to leave the cheats on when going back to playing VAC enabled games)

Some(I think) are VAC protected in multiplayer,but I want to use the trainer in Single Player,will that cause a multiplayer ban?
P.S.Thanks for the quick replies guys

Short answer: No.
Long answer: No, not in singleplayer. You have to join a server that is VAC protected before it starts scanning your system.

Just be careful that "single-player" games are not actually "multi-player with bots", as with most Valve games.

I wouldn't use a trainer in general as the executable has god knows what inside of it. If a game uses console commands or actual cheat codes, use those in single player instead.

If the game uses vac and you train in a vac server you could get ban. If the game does not use vac you wont get vac ban.
