    Gain a practical, how-to overview of the entire training function. Through modeling of the best practices and latest techniques in training delivery, discover the 4Ps of training: Purpose & Assessment, Planning & Preparation, Presentation & Facilitation, and Performance & Evaluation. New trainers will gain a strong foundation in critical training skills and seasoned trainers will be introduced to new approaches for delivering powerful training.


    The ATD Training Certificate content is practical and grounded in the real world, not just academic theory. This program focuses on what happens before, during, and after you deliver training, and what to do if training is not the right solution. With input from ATD’s Competency Study, we identified the competencies required by the most successful practitioners. The Training Certificate Program is aligned with the Training Delivery Area of Expertise in the ATD Competency Model.

    Learner feedback indicates high value in the following areas:  student engagement, expert facilitation, and applicable tools and techniques. 

    Why You Should Attend:

    • Learn the basics of adult learning theory and instructional design methodology.
    • Gain a foundation in conducting a needs assessment, developing learning objectives, and evaluating the impact of your training initiatives.
    • Learn and apply effective training techniques for managing participants, engaging a variety of learning styles, creating an effective positive learning environment, and managing classroom challenges.
    • Develop engaging training solutions that are learner-centered.
    What to Expect:
    • Pre-Work: Complete a self-assessment and read an industry article titled, "Do's and Don'ts for the New Trainer."
    • Homework: You may find it necessary to do some preparation for your skills practice outside of the classroom.
    • Supplemental Resources: This program includes tools and templates to help you apply what you learned on the job.

    Holiday Networking and Giveback


    Join us to celebrate the holiday season with some networking over delicious beverages and appetizers at O’Connor’s Restaurant!

    As part of our Holiday Networking and Giveback event, we were on the lookout for a local community-centered project that might benefit from the support of the CMATD group. We discovered a local initiative called Keeping Worcester Warm, a small group of volunteers who spend several weeks collecting warm clothing and toiletries and then hold a drive where they hand out the items to the homeless and other needy folks behind City Hall in Worcester. This second annual drive took place this year on November 4th so we weren’t able to contribute to that but the group directed us to another group performing a similar service. Called the Net of Compassion, this group gets together every Saturday to cook and serve a homemade meal to over 200 folks living in poverty in  Worcester, Massachusetts. These Net of Compassion volunteers also help by organizing and handing out clothing.  Many people visiting the Net of Compassion tents are currently struggling with homelessness, active addiction, are in early recovery, or suffering from untreated mental health concerns.

     

     

    So, how can CMATD help? The Net of  Compassion is in need of donations of gently used or new:


    • Winter coats
    • Hats/scarves
    • Gloves
    • Socks
    • (In all sizes)

     



    Please consider taking a look around your home and donating any of these items that are no longer needed by your family. These items will make a huge difference to someone who is homeless or living in poverty!

     

     Please bring your items for donation to our event on December 7th at O'Connor's Restaurant in Worcester and we will coordinate getting the donations to the Net of Compassion to be distributed to local folks in need. Together, we can make a positive impact on our local community!
