More than ever, organizations rely on the support of training to execute strategy and change. At the same time, most training as it is designed today is too “event” based and does not engage learners in a meaningful and effective performance improvement process. In this certification program designed and developed jointly with Robert Brinkerhoff, trainers, facilitators and instructional designers will get the tools to make training programs and create new and lasting behaviors for their participants.
