Here at Kirkpatrick Partners, it warms our hearts to see our past graduates doing great things in their organizations using what they learned in our programs, and inspiring others through their efforts.

We have created the Kirkpatrick® BrightLight™ Professional Award to honor such people.

Kirkpatrick BrightLight Professional inspires others through the process of implementing Kirkpatrick evaluation principles and contributing to subsequent organizational results.

We are proud to have extended this award to four deserving recipients at a reception held during the ATD 2017 International Conference & Exposition. Click here to see photos from the reception.

May is Military Appreciation Month. We do a lot of work with the military, and some of our Certified Facilitators are military veterans.

Chuck Udell, a Kirkpatrick Certified Facilitator, describes below how the Kirkpatrick Model has influenced his career.

I am a veteran, having served many years ago as an Air Force weapons officer from 1971 to 1975. I was stationed in England and Thailand. 

The Kirkpatrick Model has influenced my career tremendously. I first earned my bronze certification, which was quickly followed by silver and gold certification. I am now a Certified Facilitator.

Using the New World Kirkpatrick Model has enabled me to provide sustainable training to my clients. I insist that an evaluation plan first must be approved by management, which ensures agreement on the desired result, leading indicators, critical behaviors and required driver package. Then, my post-training session clients are coached on how to implement their driver package. 

The Kirkpatrick Model has also enabled me to understand why an engagement I had before I learned the Kirkpatrick process was not successful. 

I have used the model while co-facilitating programs with our government and military. It has been an honor to work with the Kirkpatrick Model, so I can better train our armed forces.
