This is what Kirkpatrick Certified graduates of the Programme are saying:

This is what Kirkpatrick Certified graduates of the Programme are saying:

“More than any other learning event in my time working in L&D, I feel that this will have immediate relevance and application to my work. I recommend this programme without hesitation, not only for Learning and Development Professionals, but even for General Managers and Executive Teams”

Andy Corbin, L&D Programmes Developer, IHC.

“The course catered well for those new to the Kirkpatrick Model and also to those already familiar with the framework. In practical terms, not only did the course help us with developing a more robust evaluation process (beyond learner reactions), but also with a re-think of our entire approach to needs analysis, learning delivery and on the job support practices.”

Carolyn Bates, Organisational Development Advisor, Christchurch City Council


"For me, the best thing about attending the Kirkpatrick Four Levels Evaluation programme was to be able to connect the dots. The programme takes a holistic and diagnostic approach which helps L&D professionals to establish connections between evaluation, Organisational Development, performance and engagement

Adrita Mukhopadhyay, Training Advisor, Ministry of Justice – Wellington


“Being an HR professional I was quite skeptical about the benefit of this training at first. However, during the training I realised its full potential and how it could help us to improve our current processes and practices. From time to time in my work I would come across a situation where an employee was given all the possible training opportunities, but still failed to apply learned skills and behaviours on a job. This training helped us to identify what we had been missing and how to fix a problem.”

Maryna Bilousova, Workforce Development Manager, Pact Group - Dunedin
