Not sure which data collection tool to use in your training needs assessment? Need guidelines for deciding which media option best supports your learning objectives? Want to know how to prepare participant guides, facilitator guides, and supporting materials? Looking for tips on how to handle tricky classroom situations?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you need to consider attending ATD’s new Training Design and Delivery Certificate.

I recently spoke with the program’s facilitator, Nelson Santiago, a talent and leadership development leader with more than 20 years of experience working with all organizational levels creating, promoting, and delivering training solutions designed to enhance organizations’ business and strategic plans. He is passionate about creating an interactive and authentic learning environment that supports development and employee engagement.


Listen to the podcast to hear what you can expect to learn during this five-day, highly interactive course.
