Can I obtain the Kirkpatrick Certified status without taking the program or test out of these programs and receive certification based on my past education and/or experience?
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.
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.
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.

What People are Saying
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.
Training with a purpose – tried and true – proven model. Appropriate for professionals in any industry.
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.
The program was well worth my time. That’s saying a lot – I paid for this from my own pocket.
This course is a life-changer in the world of learning and development. It provides a radical approach to true training evaluation. The practical, real-life examples and bold approach to helping organizations seek the truth about evaluation can initiate the culture change that builds the bridge for your business. I have learned the value of moving from activity-based evaluation to a true chain of evidence that tells the story stakeholders value. Jim and Wendy are both AMAZING!
This is undoubtedly one of the most valuable trainings I’ve attended in a long time. We are now equipped with the appropriate tools to confidently evaluate our training programs. Thank you!
