Preconference Learning Options

Extend your ATD 2019 experience to include preconference learning. These learning opportunities are highly interactive, focused sessions that will help you build expertise in a specific area of interest. Not only will these Certificates and workshops develop the skills needed to be successful on-the-job, but they will also keep you competitive and up-to-date. Space is limited to ensure small group interactions, so be sure to register early.

Choose the best preconference learning experience for you:

  • Education Programs are two-, three-, or four- day courses focused on a comprehensive concept or group of skills. Participants earn a certificate of completion at the end.
  • Workshops are one-day deep dives on trending topics in talent development.
