Training people to be confident L&D professionals

The Fundamentals of L&D course through the L&D Pro Academy provides the foundational concepts and practical experience you need to grow your confidence and abilities as a well-rounded L&D professional.

L&D expertise is not in short supply.

More than any time in history, information and “expertise” are everywhere. Guidance on learning & development topics and how to get started or advance your career is readily available on a variety of websites, YouTube channels, and free webinars. 

You want to build a career in learning & development and feel confident that you’ve built a foundation of knowledge and skills that you’ve picked up from a credible source. You want to walk into your next interview or your next freelance opportunity and speak to instructional design, training facilitation or elearning development with the confidence of an experienced learning & development professional. You have something to offer to a learning & development position today but employers expect you to have years of experience or some sort of professional credential in the field before they’ll listen to you.

Almost everyone in L&D started where you are today.

You are not alone. Most of the Endurance Learning team has experienced the same thing. We were devouring information trying to get enough of an understanding to be able to find our way in learning & development. It shouldn’t take years, or even decades, to gain the experience and the industry knowledge to deliver incredible value to your organization or clients. That is why we teach others to do what we do in a way that is rooted in theory and practice.

The L&D Pro Academy focuses on the skills that we’ve found to be most useful in our decades of experience. We teach the skills that would have sped up our own advancement in L&D. You get to learn from our triumphs and our stumbles, while hopefully avoiding too many of your own!

You don’t have to have years of experience and hundreds of projects under your belt to feel confident and speak with authority.

I hope the video gives you a sense for what we can achieve together in the L&D Professional Academy. It doesn’t have to stop there. 

If you still have questions, schedule a call with me. I’d love to talk with you to make sure that this course is a good fit with your goals.
