Many organizations recognize the need for competency-based training beyond formal education and on-the-job experience. As a training professional, you will need to continually develop and update your skills to remain current with the workplace and with issues that affect you and your organization's productivity.


Requirements for the Certificate

  • Full attendance at all four days of the program.
  • Some evening work during the program
  • Homework assignment to be completed during class

Learning Through Experience

Coursework is designed and delivered so that the learners learn by application as much as possible. Participants are grouped in small teams, and exercises, discussions, and case studies are carried out in these teams, enhancing the learning process.

Instructional Faculty

The Training and Development Certificate Program courses are taught by instructors who have demonstrated skills and experience in training and organization development. Many are alumni of the program, and every instructor maintains a personal career plan for their own professional growth and development. Instructors include university faculty, private consultants, and corporate and government trainers.

The American Society for Training and Development (ATD): Central Oklahoma Chapter and Houston Chapter
