RALEIGH, N.C. — Sept. 2, 2020Training Industry’s new Measuring the Impact of L&D Certificate is designed to fill a critical skills gap in learning leaders by offering learning leaders a toolbox of strategies for evaluating the impact of training, as well as the expertise to match these strategies to their unique learning initiatives. . Research has consistently identified measuring the impact of training as a core challenge for training professionals, with only 8% reporting that they excel in this area and less than 11% of training organizations having processes in place to optimize the reporting and analysis of their training programs. This gap represents a serious vulnerability, given measuring the impact of training initiatives is critical in positioning the learning and development (L&D) function as a vital business asset.

“The need for this course could not be greater or more timely,” says Amy DuVernet, Ph.D., Training Industry’s director of training manager development. “Now more than ever, learning leaders need to prove their value to the business, and this starts with measuring the impact of training.”

The certificate is completed over two virtual half-day sessions. Upon completion, learners will leave with a tailored evaluation plan; the ability to apply multiple training evaluation methods immediately in their role; and a certificate validating their expertise in measuring the business impact of L&D.

“This certificate is designed for any learning leader looking to prove the impact of training on the business,” says Alyssa Kaszycki, learning product manager at Training Industry. “After completing the program, learners will have the skills they need to evaluate, measure and report the impact of their training initiatives to stakeholders, helping them gain buy-in for future learning programs.”

The first session will be held October 7-8 from 1- 5 p.m. (ET). L&D professionals can register here or contact Marisa Shapiro, director of professional development at Training Industry, Inc., for more information.
