Now there are no more excuses. Here's your chance to join a group of professionals with like-minded challenges and expectations, find in-depth content to improve your day-to-day work, and learn from renowned instructors who truly want you to succeed — all in a new online format. The programs include project work with your peers so you can absorb and integrate information from each week.
Every live session is recorded and stored online so you can access it up to six months after the program ends. (Archives of sessions are for review purposes only. In order to earn your Certificate of Completion and eBadge, you must log in for and participate in each live course and successfully complete any homework assignments by specified deadlines.)
These online certificates are designed with your busy schedule in mind, while still providing the top-notch content you seek. By the end of each program you will have jump-started your career and enhanced your professional know-how.
Our producers and instructional designers work closely with topic presenters to choose the most appropriate mix of best-of-breed learning tools for each topic in order to create a vibrant learning experience that grows and gains momentum. Certificates may be highlighted by interactive webcasts or group discussions delivered live and archived for immediate on-demand playback, or might focus on asynchronous and collaborative activities. Quizzing, polling and assessment tools can be launched within live sessions, or posted within the community for participant access at anytime.
You'll participate in online and collaborative activities in a number of ways, each designed to provide a unique means to interact and learn from experts and colleagues. All course delivery software operates at Internet connection speeds of 56.6 kbps or better, on PC, Mac and Unix platforms. Programs will use teleconferencing or VoIP* (Voice Over Internet Protocol).* The login instructions emailed to you the week before your certificate starts will outline platform use as well as any headset requirements or suggestions.
*Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line. Some VoIP services may only allow you to call other people using the same service, but others may allow you to call anyone who has a telephone number - including local, long distance, mobile, and international numbers. Also, while some VoIP services only work over your computer or a special VoIP phone, other services allow you to use a traditional phone connected to a VoIP adapter.
Training Magazine Certificates have been pre-approved by the ATD Certification Institute to offer educational programs that can be used towards initial eligibility and recertification of the Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) and Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) credentials.
After successfully completing your certificate program, you will receive a professionally produced Certificate of Completion and an eBadge. eBadges are transforming how your hard-earned achievements are recognized, shared and rewarded. You can showcase eBadges in your email signature or on social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
