The ATD Training Certificate content is practical and grounded in the real world, not just academic theory. This program focuses on what happens before, during, and after you deliver training, and what to do if training is not the right solution. With input from ATD’s Competency Study, we identified the competencies required by the most successful practitioners. The Training Certificate Program is aligned with the Training Delivery Area of Expertise in the ATD Competency Model.

Learner feedback indicates high value in the following areas:  student engagement, expert facilitation, and applicable tools and techniques. 

Why You Should Attend:

  • Learn the basics of adult learning theory and instructional design methodology.
  • Gain a foundation in conducting a needs assessment, developing learning objectives, and evaluating the impact of your training initiatives.
  • Learn and apply effective training techniques for managing participants, engaging a variety of learning styles, and creating an effective positive learning environment, and managing classroom challenges.
