Introduction To The Silver Level Certification Program
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.
Do I need to earn bronze level certification before silver level certification?
You must attend the bronze level certification program before you can attend the silver level certification program. Thereafter, earning bronze level certification is a prerequisite for earning silver level certification.
Is there a time limit to complete silver level certification?
No. We provide guided assistance for 12 months following the synchronous sessions of the program, but you can take as long as you need to complete the final assignment. We do not ever prevent someone who has invested in the silver level program from earning their certification.
Do I need to use the same program for the final projects to earn bronze and silver certification?
No. You may use any program you like to earn silver certification once you have earned bronze. If you use a different program, start by completing a Kirkpatrick® Blended Evaluation Form® for the program, and then use the tools you obtain in the silver level program.
What if the program I am using as the basis for earning silver level certification changes, is moving too slowly, or gets cancelled?
No problem. Program changes and delays are not a problem because you can adapt your silver level planning process accordingly to accommodate for these real-world occurrences. If the program is cancelled or your work responsibilities change, you can select a different program for the basis of earning silver level certification at any time.
Is the final project for silver completed individually or in a group?
You have the option to complete the silver level certification final project as an individual, or in a small group. Generally speaking, the group size is limited to eight program participants, but you are welcome to have others in your organization work on the project as non-certification participants.
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.
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?
It is no problem for a group of three or more people from the same organization to register separately and receive the group discount. Contact us for a promotional code to use at registration.
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.
What People are Saying
Data sourcing is key to performance measurement. The silver program provided excellent examples moving from the evaluation plan to data sourcing, analysis and recommendations using the New World Kirkpatrick Model.
This programme is essential to help L&D to become a good investment for companies, rather than a cost.
The pace and style worked well for me. The group discussions were very powerful.
As an independent contractor, this program is very important to me. It gave me additional ideas as to how to use the model in ‘real’ life.
The Kirkpatrick programs continue to deliver a practical approach that makes sense and will help us to demonstrate impact.
