Gain a practical, how-to overview of the entire training function. Through modeling of the best practices and latest techniques in training delivery, discover the 4Ps of training: Purpose & Assessment, Planning & Preparation, Presentation & Facilitation, and Performance & Evaluation. New trainers will gain a strong foundation in critical training skills and seasoned trainers will be introduced to new approaches for delivering powerful training.

The ATD 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 ATD’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 ATD Competency Model.

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

Find out why facilitator Sharon Wingron values the Training Certificate Program.

What Participants Are Saying
"My favorite takeaways were watching Peggy effortlessly move the class from one activity to the other, injecting fun into training and the tiny details that Peggy went into to get us thinking about every aspect of facilitation. I would definitely love to attend another program."
"I would recommend this program because it is very interactive, and the instructor puts you in the same environment as your participants would be in. This is beneficial because you don't just talk about what to do; you experience it as well. My favorite takeaways would have to be: You can't teach someone, but you can help them learn, along with many effective ways to get your participants engaged in the information."
"The real-life experiences discussed by the facilitator and the open discussion among course participants provided a personal touch to the program. The materials are easy to follow and provide a great reference point for future review. I would recommend the Train the Trainer program to anyone who is getting started in the training field and also to anyone who needs a refresher course. It provided a great foundation of knowledge that allows the participants to take it offline and choose where they need to expand their knowledge."
