Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program – Bronze Level
The Kirkpatrick Model comprises the foremost evaluation methodology in the world. In this program, you will learn directly from the Kirkpatricks the true and correct methodology and apply it to an actual program to maximize business results. This course is limited to 30 or fewer participants to ensure you receive personalized attention and the opportunity to participate.
During this program, you will learn the four levels, receive a 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 behaviors. You will learn why training alone is not enough and receive guidance to ensure that what you teach actually gets used on the job.
This program is available in person and live online.

Can I obtain the Kirkpatrick Certified status without taking the program?
Like any degree or credential, completing the program is a requirement to earn the right to call yourself Kirkpatrick Certified.
If I want to become Kirkpatrick Certified, do I need to complete the bronze, strategic evaluation planning, silver, and gold levels?
No. You can obtain just bronze level certification; thousands of professionals have done this worldwide and successfully applied their knowledge. You may enhance your credentials with strategic evaluation planning, silver, and gold level certification at any point in the future.
Does attending these programs certify me to teach the Kirkpatrick methodology?
No. These programs certify you to use the licensed Kirkpatrick templates and materials within your own organization. A train-the-trainer program is available for large organizations with 100+ people to train internally.
Can I take strategic evaluation planning and/or silver certification immediately following bronze?
Yes. You may attend programs consecutively if you have a good training evaluation background. You will also need to accept that some of the activities in the silver level program are focused on a bronze plan that you will just have started to create.
How do I register now and pay later, or how do I obtain an invoice?
During the registration process, click the “pay with invoice” option at the bottom of the second page. You will have 20 days from the invoice date to pay, or until 5 business days before the start of the program, whichever comes first. We accept credit cards, checks, and electronic funds transfer.
How do we get the group discount price if we register separately?

What if I register and need to reschedule or cancel?
We understand sometimes plans change and emergencies occur. Refer to our cancellation policy to see your options and then contact us.
Can I get certified without providing my contact information?
No. Kirkpatrick certification is worldwide recognized credential, and we must be able to verify who holds it. If you have an exceptional circumstance, please contact us.
What People are Saying
This was an outstanding offering. The Kirkpatricks really raise the bar on what it means to effectively evaluate training programs. I feel much more confident in my ability to convince stakeholders to invest in sustaining our program using the plan I developed during this course. Thank you, Jim and Wendy!
Great facilitating – mind-opening training. It is unlike any I have experienced, and most useful.
Although I am a Certified Performance Consultant, it wasn’t until after your class that I realized how to present a complete Performance Solution. And the importance of being a part of the complete solution, not just the training piece of it! I am really excited to continue using what I learned.
This course really opened my eyes on how to get past Level 1 and 2 evaluations and center in on the behaviors and results aspect of making training relevant to the end user, and helping stakeholders realize its importance to mission readiness.
Wendy took the time to listen intently to feedback that challenged the thinking and ideas. I did not feel that this was ‘The Kirkpatrick way and that’s all.’
This program has shown me the “new world” of Kirkpatrick’s 4 Levels. Thank you for taking me out of the traditional way of evaluating Learning & Performance solutions. This is going to power up the way we build partnerships w/ our stakeholders.
