Program description 

KP Silver

Kirkpatrick silver level certification provides the structure and support you need to successfully execute a complete program evaluation plan. Its blend of cutting-edge skills and ongoing support begins with a full-day session during which participants share a formal progress report and obtain expert and peer feedback in a conversational environment. The program is limited to 30 or fewer participants to ensure that you receive personalized attention and feedback on your program progress.

During this program and through formal, ongoing support, you will learn the key questions to ask during data collection and analysis, as well as how to use that information to ensure maximum on-the-job application and subsequent results. You also will learn how to identify and leverage success factors for future initiatives. Common challenges and their solutions will be discussed in large and small group discussions.

The program concludes with the creation of individual action plans for program execution and final reports. Silver level certification is obtained after the participant makes a final presentation of the program’s outcome and results to Kirkpatrick Partners via a conference call scheduled within 12 months of course attendance.

Program Level and Prerequisites

This is an advanced level program.

• All participants must have participated in the Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program - Bronze Level prior to starting the silver program.

• Ideally, participants come to the program with a completed four levels program evaluation plan with implementation progress (some or all training has been conducted, at least some data collected).

You may take bronze and silver programs consecutively if you have a good training evaluation background. You will also need to accept that some of the activities in the silver level program are focused on a bronze plan that you will just have started to create.



This program consists of four elements:
1. A pre-work assignment to be completed prior to the start of the first online session
2. Three live-online sessions - Live participation in at least one of the three sessions is required to be eligible to advance towards certification.
3. Program status calls that you will schedule as needed
4. Presentation of final plan

Message from from Dr Jim Kirkpatrick:

In December 2012, I co-facilitated the first ever Kirkpatrick Four Levels® Evaluation Certification Program in New Zealand alongside David and Mark of GMD Partnerships. This has enabled me to accredit both David and Mark to facilitate on behalf of Kirkpatrick Partners, and I fully endorse them to deliver Kirkpatrick training programs to our New Zealand and Australia community.

David and Mark recently presented a New Zealand case study at the Australian Institute of Training and Development International Conference in Melbourne on the practical application of the Kirkpatrick Model. In doing so, they demonstrated theoretical and practical knowledge of the model that is changing the way L&D practitioners are building bridges and partnering with their businesses. You will find their delivery style encouraging and enlightening, and I know you will enjoy every minute of your participation in this program.

All the best,

Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick
