Online Brinkerhoff Certification - for High Performance Learning Journeys®

Learn how to create High Performance Learning Journeys® in this innovative online program

More than ever, organizations rely on the support of training to execute strategy and change. At the same time, most training as it is designed today is too event based and does not engage learners in a meaningful and effective performance improvement process. This program will give you the tools to make training programs that create new and lasting behaviours and results.

In finishing the certification, you will have a complete program ready to deliver, and you can offer this immediately as a new offering to your clients.

I am excited to have completed the “High Performance Learning Journeys Architect Certification”. It has been full of great insights and positive challenges. Professor Brinkerhoff and the team at Promote International have helped us take our learning design to a new level! As a result, we are launching our KnowledgeWorkx Inter-Cultural Intelligence Certification as an HPLJ blended learning journey… Oh, the beauty of life-long-learning!”

The Brinkerhoff Certification for creating High Performance Learning Journeys was an amazing experience and perfectly timed as I have moved away from an event-based approach to viewing learning as a continual process.

I joined a group of 20 amazing professionals from across the globe to learn a new approach to learning design and use powerful tools to create new and lasting behaviours and results. So what makes an HPLJ unique is the focus on performance and that it incorporates a balance of four core elements; Committing to the journey, Building the knowledge foundation, Developing & practising skills and Strengthening results!”

Creating learning that sticks and that is directly related to better job performance is a daunting task. This ambitious challenge is what the Brinkerhoff Certification Program addresses in a very successful way with its High Performance Learning Journey. The great strength of the method that it takes its point of departure in the business need that the training intervention is to address and then on the basis of that defines the learning objectives.

I have used the method in relation to a sales training program that we have for all customer-facing employees at Nordea Bank with great results. In our Training Department we have adapted the performance map from the course to a pre-scope document for learning, and it makes a lot of sense in our communication with stakeholders. The thinking in the rest of the program is also used in all phases of the training development. A highly recommendable course.

I can say without question that having attended the Brinkerhoff HPLJ programme it has made a huge difference to the way I work. The skills and techniques that I learnt on the programme, have transformed the way we now operate as a business. It genuinely made me completely rethink my approach to learning and development and how results can be achieved.

Completing the Brinkerhoff Certification and learning to use Promote has been a very useful and rewarding process. Our organization is using the design process and Promote to increase our ability to support coaching and collection of performance evidence that allows us to ensure that what we support people learning transfers into practice and achieves the desired results.

The Promote platform, and the design process helps to sharply focus the learning, align the practices that demonstrate use of the knowledge and skills taught, and achieve measurable results. Using Promote we can review the performers progress and outputs, give feedback, and support peer coaching and social learning.

This tool and the related design helps us provide our clients the type of meaningful and performance-based adult learning that helps their employees and organizations meet their goals.

I think this is a very well planned and executed online learning session. All my hopes and expectations were fulfilled (and they were quite high, given the topic HPLJ…). Nice, easy-to-understand learning portal. Adobe Connect works well – I especially liked the “chat pods” and the possibility for you as the facilitators to “delay” my view of the other participants’ messages, giving me the opportunity to think for myself a bit. And in these times of endless Teams meetings full of one-way communication – I must give you special praise for the level of interaction with us participants! Thank you so much for letting me remember how big a difference this makes and what it does for people meeting online.
