Are You Ready?
Business leaders have every right to question the value of learning & organizational development interventions. When your business leader comes asking you, will you have the data ready to support your work? If the answer is anything except "Yes!" this course is right for you.
The Kirkpatrick Model Can HelpThe Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification is the worldwide standard for evaluating the effectiveness of training. It considers the value of any type of training, formal or informal, across four levels. Level 1 Reaction evaluates how participants respond to the training. Level 2 Learning measures if they actually learned the material. Level 3 Behavior considers if they are using what they learned on the job, and Level 4 Results evaluates if the training positively impacted the organization.
What You'll Learn
During this course you will learn the four levels, receive a participant manual filled with examples and templates that you may borrow and adapt to build your own tools, and gain a complete understanding of what each level measures. You will also explore the reasons why evaluation is critical to training success and hear case studies and success stories from companies that have used the model effectively. You will learn the Kirkpatrick Decision-Making Model to help you to allocate training resources effectively.
A unique feature of this course is the exploration of how to ensure that what is learned transfers to on-the-job behaviors. You will learn why training alone is not enough, and receive guidance to make sure that what you teach actually gets used on the job. You will receive a grade and personalized comments for your own evaluation plan you submit at the end of the course to become certified.

- Objectively determine where to allocate training resources to create the most business impact
- Create an effective program evaluation plan that maximizes business results and minimizes resources employed
