This is a live online interactive program within a virtual classroom. The Kirkpatrick Model comprises the foremost training evaluation methodology in the world. In this program, you will learn the true and correct Kirkpatrick methodology and apply it to an actual program to maximise business results.

During this program, you will learn the four levels of training evaluation, receive a participant manual filled with examples and templates that you may borrow and adapt to build your own Blended Evaluation Plan® tools, and gain a complete understanding of what each level measures. You will also explore the reasons why training evaluation is critical to training success and hear case studies and success stories from companies that have used the Kirkpatrick Model effectively. You will learn tactics to help you to allocate training resources effectively.

A focus of this program is the exploration of how to ensure that what is learned transfers to on-the-job behaviours. You will learn why training alone is not enough and receive guidance to ensure that what you teach actually gets used on the job.

You will receive a grade and personalised feedback on the Blended Evaluation Plan® submitted by your in-class team at the end of the course to become Kirkpatrick bronze level certified.

In December 2012, I co-facilitated the first ever Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program in New Zealand alongside David and Mark of GMD Partnerships. This has enabled me to accredit both David and Mark to facilitate on behalf of Kirkpatrick Partners, and I fully endorse them to deliver Kirkpatrick training programs to our New Zealand and Australia community.

David and Mark recently presented a New Zealand case study at the Australian Institute of Training and Development International Conference in Melbourne on the practical application of the Kirkpatrick Model. In doing so, they demonstrated theoretical and practical knowledge of the model that is changing the way L&D practitioners are building bridges and partnering with their businesses. You will find their delivery style encouraging and enlightening, and I know you will enjoy every minute of your participation in this program.

All the best,
