What does the Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification consist of during COVID-19?

Like all our other programmes, we are taking the necessary precautions during the pandemic and have moved all Kirkpatrick programmes online until further notice.

The Kirkpatrick Bronze online program currently comprises of five online sessions over 2 days facilitated live by Kirkpatrick Certified Facilitators. Each session is approximately 2 hours 30 mins long.

During this program, you will learn the four levels of evaluation, receive a downloadable participant manual filled with examples and templates that you may borrow and adapt to build your own Blended Evaluation Plan® tools, and gain a complete understanding of what each level measures.

You will also explore the reasons why evaluation is critical to training success and hear case studies and success stories from companies that have used the model effectively. You will learn tactics to help you to allocate training resources effectively.

A focus of this program is the exploration of how to ensure that what is learned transfers to on-the job behaviours. You will learn why training alone is not enough and receive guidance to ensure that what you teach actually gets used on the job.
