Training Needs Assessment Certificate

Are you tired of being an order-taker? Effective needs assessment will position you as a strategic business partner who understands organizational needs and how learning can solve them. But Training Industry understands that mastering the needs assessment process, and gaining a seat at the decision-making table, isn’t easy. In fact, Training Industry research suggests that less than 20% of organizations have optimized their diagnostic processes.

The Training Needs Assessment certificate course is designed to equip you with the tools and strategies you need to identify and respond to your organization’s most pressing training needs.

This certificate utilizes several areas of Training Industry’s Training Manager Competency Model™ to provide L&D leaders with an in-depth understanding of effective diagnostic and needs assessment approaches to ensure learning is targeted to organizational needs and priorities.

  • Recognize and communicate the importance of needs analysis in the L&D function.
  • Identify and understand when to apply the four types of needs analysis.
  • Differentiate between the various strategies, data sources, questioning tactics, or resources needed for each type of needs analysis.
