Program Description
Click to download program brochure

The Kirkpatrick Model represents more than just training evaluation. It forms the framework for the Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model, a holistic process that creates, delivers and demonstrates training value.

In this program, you will learn how to build business partnerships and create collaborative plans to maximize business impact through all phases of the training and performance process. You will study worldwide best practices and share your own experiences in an interactive, conversational environment. You will use your own programs for application activities, so actual work gets completed during the session.

Particular attention is given to business acumen and speaking the language of the business when making your case for training resources and support. You will receive a workbook containing templates, samples and tools that will enable you to apply what you learned to all future programs within your company.

The Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Certificate Program was the predecessor to this program. It covered similar yet less comprehensive content. If you participated in that program, please call before registering for this one.

Accelerated Certification Event (ACE)
This program can be part of an accelerated certification plan because it is followed by a Kirkpatrick bronze level certification program. Anyone may attend these two programs consecutively. Foundationally, it is an excellent option. In Kirkpatrick® Strategic Evaluation Planning Certification Program, find out what to do during the planning phase for an initiative. In the Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program - Bronze Level, actually build an implementation plan. You must register for each program separately.
