"The program delivered content for both seasoned professionals and new instructional designers. I learned some new concepts, networked with peers, and gained confidence for my upcoming interview. Because I am unemployed it was a very tough decision to spend money on training, but my money was well spent!"
"After training new hires for more than a year with no previous training experience, this program taught me everything I need to know to effectively train adults. There were so many concepts and activities that helped me understand training as a whole and how to apply them to my future training. The Training Certificate program was amazing!"
Account Support Team Manager/Company Trainer
"I had an amazing experience at my Training Certificate program! It gave me a new perspective on what I do in comparison with what others do in the same situation when training. Not to mention the hundreds of examples of activities, best practices, techniques, and skills I gained in the 3 day period!
No matter how much we did in that class, I felt like we were only scratching the surface. I am positive that I could have spent a month there and not run out of interesting topics to talk about with my peers and instructor. I feel that this was one of the best investments I could have made. I would do it again in a heartbeat!"

As a beginner in instructional design, I learned that even the driest technical training does not have to be “death-by-PowerPoint”! I would recommend this program to anyone who feels trapped by the subject they teach because there are truths in this course that will set you free. This course was phenomenally designed and executed—I never once felt bored, distracted, or uninterested in three full days of instruction. I took away resources I can customize to meet my organization's needs, as well as a comprehensive picture of learning across a diverse range of organizations (government, non-profit, private, etc.). I walked out of that classroom feeling equipped not only for my job, but for my career—and that is rare and exciting!
Audrey Rubio, Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA)
"The online workshop was so user friendly that I felt that I took a quantum leap into technical savvy and a greater appreciation of learning via a web conference. The facilitator was right in tune with the participants, keeping us attentive and involved. It was a proactive event for me, and something I would like to repeat in the near future."
Center for Performance and Accountability Inc.
The Project Management for Learning Professionals certificate program presented a systematic process for managing a project from start to finish. The process took us step by step and was very helpful. It was such a diverse class with many different industries represented. We learned so much from each other and our facilitator did an EXCELLENT job keeping discussions going! I have my workbook on my desk and I refer to it regularly for tips!

"Both of the ASTD certificate programs I had the pleasure of attending were conducted by extremely well qualified personnel, the facilities were conducive to performing the required training, and the accommodations in the immediate area were of high quality and within a short walk. I'll be returning this year."
"I was more engaged in this online workshop that I have been in many of the classroom courses I've attended. I learned MORE in a condensed amount of time and paid LESS than many of the college classes I've attended. I hope that someday the classroom sessions that I facilitate will be as effective and engaging! There were numerous folks attending, some even internationally, but I still got the feeling I was in a small, personalized learning environment."
"The ASTD program I attended showed me that online learning can go way beyond simple information distribution. The case studies were directly applicable to my job and industry, and provided examples of when things go right and when they don't. A class bulletin board provided a forum for learners to post homework and real life issues, and to get feedback from other learners and the instructor. I will definitely take another ASTD online program in the future."
Global Leader of Learning & Development
"What I learned in ASTD’s Coaching Certificate program is invaluable for both my career and my own personal development. I walked out of class with the resources I need to continue my growth in this field, and the satisfaction of having met my goals for the class (and then some). I also got the opportunity to network with peers who have inspired me, and have a one-on-one discussion with our facilitator, who gave me more suggestions and ideas to tackle one of the biggest issues I am currently having at my job."
