Measuring the return on investment (ROI) of a specific training program can be difficult at best. This often limits an organisation’s knowledge of how and which training programs benefit employees, which leads to poor budgetary planning for future programs.

The PD Training Measuring Results from Training Course provides you with the knowledge and skill development in various learning styles, training evaluation levels and plans, training measurement tools, ROI formulas and assessment of the training. This course helps your organisation identify and measure the tangible and the intangible benefits of training so that you can plan accurately and maximise the return from future training programs.

This high-energy, dynamic training course is available now throughout Australia, including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Parramatta, Canberra and Perth.

    Measuring Results from Training - Training Course Reviews:

    "Brad facilitated one of the most engaging and exciting sessions I have attended for PD in the past 20 years. He adapted to our team's needs throughout the session and allowed us to go off track to discuss organisational purpose and needs before we began to look at evaluation. This process was critical for us as a start up agency and helped to bring us together to help find future solutions for our development as a team and as an agency."

    The National Disability Insurance Agency


    "Brad was excellent and worked to the knowledge and ability of the group. He was comfortable in facilitating discussion that went outside of the 'learning objectives' for the day."

    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.
