About This Certificate Program
Racing to create course materials and roll out initiatives without upfront analysis of what drives the need or knowing how to ensure results is shortsighted. In this highly practical course, you will learn a systematic approach for conducting your own training needs assessment of individual and organizational performance that prompts requests for learning and development solutions.

Learn to use an ATD-exclusive needs assessment process to identify individual or organizational needs prior to developing learning strategies. As a result, the effectiveness of the programs you develop will increase.

Why You Should Attend

  • Learn to stop operating in order-taker mode and relying solely on your stakeholder’s learning solution inputs.
  • Align learning solutions with business outcomes to maximize impact, increase your professional competence, and ensure you are a valued partner to your organization.
  • Gain access to data collection tools and methods you can use immediately on the job to assess business and performance needs.

Who Should Attend
This program is for professionals who want to gain a foundational understanding of conducting a needs assessment for training, organizational development, and other organizational projects involving people and processes.

“In my preconference Certificate I made connections with people I could go out to dinner with to discuss our hopes and plans for the conference, as well as the challenges we faced in our roles back at home. I was able to pick these same faces out of the crowd during sessions and keynotes, making the conference feel friendlier and granting me the confidence to engage with other attendees whom I did not know.”
