Throughout the practicum, there is ample discussion and team-based activities dedicated to using best practices in properly aligning your training programs with the goals of your organization.

By the end of the program, you will have developed a plan of action that aligns your training goals with the goals of the business you support. Each practicum will include a keynote discussion with an experienced training executive, who has faced many of the challenges you face in your company.

The two-hour online exam can be taken at your leisure at home or in the office. Upon successful completion, you will receive your certification.
