Are you ready to advance your career as a talent development professional? Get started with this fast-paced training design boot camp that will build your foundational skills in both instructional design and training and facilitation, all in one program.

The course kicks off with an overview of the ADDIE model for instructional design and then walks you through each phase of the design process. During the first half of the course, you will learn how to apply the model’s tools and principles using a human performance improvement approach.

The second half of the program introduces the training cycle. You will learn best practices and the latest techniques for each step of the cycle and have an opportunity to practice your facilitation skills and receive feedback.

Enroll in this program, and take the next step toward becoming a well-rounded TD professional who understands the entire process of designing and delivering outcome-based learning events. Walk away with dozens of templates and tools you can use to support your work.

Why You Should Attend:

  • Access two certificates in one and accelerate your learning! Material from ATD’s Instructional Design Certificate and Training & Facilitation Certificate are provided in this single five-day experience (instead of six).
  • Build a foundation in core instructional design methods and activities: conducting a needs assessment, developing learning objectives, and evaluating the impact of your training initiatives.
  • Apply effective facilitation techniques to engage participants, create an effective and positive learning environment, and manage classroom challenges.
  • Create participant guides, facilitator guides, and supporting materials using templates provided in the workshop.
