Measuring Results from Training

Human Resources


Although we all know that training can have many amazing benefits, sometimes it can be hard to prove those benefits with a dollar value to training. Some topics, like sales training or time management, might have direct, tangible benefits. Other topics, like communication or leadership, might have benefits that you can"t put a dollar value on.

Our Measuring Results From Training course, participants will learn about the different ways to evaluate training progress, and how to use those results to demonstrate the results that training brings. Once the training has been evaluated the next step is to modify and update the curriculum to create content that is better suited for the participants.
