Kirkpatrick® Strategic Evaluation Planning Certification Program
The Kirkpatrick Model represents more than just training evaluation. It forms the framework for the Kirkpatrick Business Partnership Model, a strategic process that creates, delivers, and demonstrates training value.
In this program, you will learn how to build business partnerships and create collaborative plans to maximize business impact through all phases of the training and performance process. You will study worldwide best practices and share your own experiences in an interactive, conversational environment. You will use your own programs for application activities, so actual work gets completed during the session.
Particular attention is given to business acumen and speaking the language of the business when making your case for training resources and support. You will receive a workbook containing templates, samples, and tools that will enable you to apply what you learned to all future programs within your company.
This program is available in person and live online.
Duration: 1 day or 2 live-online sessions
$1295; Save $300 off most sessions when you register 45+ days in advance. Group, government, military, and charitable / humanitarian organization discounts available.

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.
Can I take this program prior to bronze level certification?
Yes. This program has no prerequisites. However, we suggest that only experienced professionals take this program without first taking bronze.
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?
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.
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.
