Training & Development Professional Certification
The next Certified Training Development class will be delivered on April 7-11, 2014 in College Station, Texas. The Training and Development Professional Certification Program is offered face-to-face.
This face-to-face training program is offered at least once a year in the spring. Additional offerings can be designed for individual organizations to meet their training needs. The training is limited to 25 participants; therefore, early registration is encouraged.
The Department coordinates the Training and Development Certification Program. This program is an intensive hands-on, competency-based program for Training and Development practitioners who are already experienced but desire to polish their skills or for individuals new to the field of training and development.
Unlike the previous programs, the Training and Development Professional Certification Program will be based on the ADDIE (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implementation and Evaluation) model that consists of five systematic steps used to create instructional products for a variety of settings. Each phase represents a series of tasks that ensure development efforts stay on target. This model represents a complete instructional design workflow. It has built-in planning activities, quality assurance checkpoints, and feedback cycles. The Training and Development Professional Certification Program will present the ADDIE model through a real-world corporate training perspective.
