BH206 Effective Training Design and Evaluation

Certificate Track: Management of Human Resources

Billions of dollars are spent yearly on organizational training programs nationwide, yet too often crucial steps that would ensure that effective training is developed, or deemed as necessary, are not taken.

  • Using the needs-assessment process to determine specific training problems
  • Ensuring that training design addresses the specific problem
  • Designing course material that looks at the "bigger picture" of learning for the "learners"
  • Sequencing and organizing course material and lesson plans
  • Using training techniques and methods that support Adult Learning Theory
  • Implementing effective training and evaluation strategies

How You Benefit

  • Discover a systematic approach to evaluate training needs versus performance needs
  • Learn to design effective training programs that link to organizational goals and objectives
