Measuring Results From Training

Categories: Human Resources
Includes lifetime access

Course Overview

Although we all know that training can have many amazing benefits, sometimes it can be hard to prove those benefits and attach 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. In this course, we will learn about the different ways to evaluate training progress, and how to use those results to demonstrate the results that training brings.

Research has consistently demonstrated that when clear goals are associated with learning that the learning occurs more easily and rapidly. By the end of this course, you will be able to:
