There are various thechniques you can use, but why not try this one:
When he starts crying, go to him to make sure there is nothing wrong. Pick him up to calm him down - if he is hysterical he will not fall asleep. Once the crying has abated to a sniffle (but before he is asleep), put him down and leave the room.
He will probably start crying. Give him 3 minutes, then pick him up, get him back to a sniff, and then down again, but this time for 6 minutes, and so on, adding 3 minutes each time, until he falls asleep.
If he wakes later, start again at 3 minutes.
Also, if there is not a night light on in his room, it may be an idea to put one in, so that when he wakes it is not completely dark.
This usually takes 2 or 3 nights, and he may lose the training if he becomes sick for whatever reason.
