Course Description

The Kirkpatrick Model comprises the foremost evaluation methodology in the world. In this course, you will learn directly from the Kirkpatricks the true and correct methodology and apply it your own program to maximize business results. This course is limited to 30 or fewer attendees to ensure you receive personalized attention and the opportunity to participate.

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 on your own evaluation plan you submit at the end of the course to become certified.
