The Training and Development Certificate involves the study and application of the theories and methods used in the development of contemporary industrial training and technical education curricula, the identification of training objectives, the implementation of effective industrial training programs, and the analysis and evaluation of industrial training workshops and programs using process and product evaluations.
Training is a growing profession in industry but often does not require a graduate degree as credential. This certificate can allow the development of credentials and enhanced expertise for those attempting to become trainers in industry without the necessity of completing the degree.
Course content was identified through analysis of American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) and International Board of Standards for Training, Performance and Instruction (IBSTPI) standards and recommendations and is consistent with those recommendations and standards.
To learn more about each course, the prerequisites, and any additional degree requirements, we suggest going to the Graduate Catalog.
