    ATD National’s Training Certificate Class, the premier train-the-trainer program, is coming to Kirkland, WA!  Join in this 3-day learning session and gain a Training Certificate.   Sign up for the Oct 15-17, 2014 dates and don’t forget to use ATD Puget Sound Chapter CHIP Code: CH8020.

     

    About the program:

    The ASTD 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 ASTD’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 ASTD Competency Model

     

    Who should attend:

    This program is ideal for new trainers or experienced trainers who have not had formal education in training. It is also for those trainers who need a refresher to improve their classroom techniques and methods to transfer learning to work situations.

    ASTD Education programs are designed primarily for learning professionals – trainers, instructional designers, and organizational development practitioners – but also greatly benefit anyone within an organization who is responsible for developing others, from managers to human resources specialists.
