Program Overview

Program Overview

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.

Learner feedback indicates high value in the following areas:  student engagement, expert facilitation, and applicable tools and techniques.
