ATD-GTC's Learning Lab:

How to Implement a Certification Program

This workshop will include a copy of
"Product Training for the Technical Expert: The Art of Developing and Delivering Hands-On Learning" 
courtesy of our host:

The topic of “certification” often incites one of two extremes: some are afraid of it and the legal implications that it may include, and others award it with no more value than a certificate of attendance. If you are interested in designing or implementing an internal, proficiency-based certification program, this workshop is for you!

After this hands-on workshop you will be able to:

  1. Define the differences between a certificate and a certification program.
  2. Articulate when a certification program might be appropriate
  3. List the requirements for implementing a certification program
  4. Describe the process for authorizing certification instructors
  5. Practice demonstrating the value of a certification to stakeholders

The workshop will be based on two books, “Performance-Based Certification” by Dr. Judith Hale and “Product Training for the Technical Expert” by Dan Bixby. Both books are published by Wiley and available on Amazon or your vendor of choice.
