Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program - Silver Level - Online
Program begins on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 For more information, call us at (770) 302-3500

     This program was converted from an in-person event in the Washington, D.C. area to a live-online event due to current health concerns. 

Program Description

Kirkpatrick silver level certification provides the structure and support you need to successfully execute a complete program evaluation plan. Its blend of cutting-edge skills and ongoing support begins with a full-day session during which participants share a formal progress report and obtain expert and peer feedback in a conversational environment. The program is limited to 30 or fewer participants to ensure that you receive personalized attention and feedback on your program progress.

During this program and through ongoing support, you will learn the key questions to ask during data collection and analysis, as well as how to use that information to ensure maximum on-the-job application and subsequent results. You also will learn how to identify and leverage success factors for future initiatives. Common challenges and their solutions will be discussed in large and small group discussions.

The program concludes with the creation of individual action plans for program execution and final reports. Silver level certification is obtained after the participant makes a final presentation of the program’s outcome and results to Kirkpatrick Partners via a conference call scheduled within 12 months from program attendance.
