Kirkpatrick® Four Levels Certification – Gold Level

Kirkpatrick gold level certification provides a way for professionals to share the accomplishments obtained from their application of The Kirkpatrick Model to their programs and to obtain appropriate recognition for themselves and their execution team. It is designed for professionals who want to make a difference in the world of training and development above and beyond their own organizations.

Kirkpatrick Partners recognizes that we alone cannot make all of the necessary changes to the widely held yet false beliefs about training value embodied in the training event itself. Fulfilling this mission requires a worldwide team of business partnership “ambassadors.”

The gold level is open to those who have attained Kirkpatrick silver level certification. It consists of presenting or publishing your program evaluation process, results or best practices in a way that assists other training or business professionals.

Examples include:

  • Having an article published in a trade magazine
  • Presenting at a trade event or to an audience outside of your own organization
  • Having a case example included in a book, journal, or white paper

Gold level certification is available to silver level certification holders at no charge as a service to the industry.
