Comments from participants in Katrina's Fall 2013 Fundamentals for Professional Trainers (Train the Trainers) Series:

  • Absolutely superb class from start to finish! Thank you!
  • Katrina sets a high standard for interactive, engaging, quality instruction, development, materials, fun and especially modeling what's being taught. Essential for Train The Trainer classes. Thank you so much!
  • Thank you again, Katrina, for the engaging, informative training. It was also fun! I will use much of this info in my conversations with clients.
  • Throughout class, Katrina modeled behaviors that were extremely valuable for all trainers.

New and improved curricula from Katrina Kennedy

The course is appropriate for new trainers, training professionals looking for a “recharge”, and has been attended by many who have had years of experience in training and development.  Many enter the training field with no formal training and use this series to attain a formal introduction to training and development principles, tools, and techniques.

The internationally recognized ASTD (American Society of Training and Development) Competency Model and the ADDIE Model have been used to design this high quality, value-driven event for Learning and Development (L &D) professionals wishing to upgrade their skills in assessment, design, development, delivery, and evaluation.

Special notice to all students: We are unable to allow “make-up days” in the Fundamentals Series - beginning in the Spring of 2014.  If you must miss a day of the series, you will not be able to receive a certificate for the series or repeat the day missed in future Fundamentals Series.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but due to the demand for the classes and limited class size, this is a policy we were forced to institute.


  • ASTD Sacramento Chapter Members: $229
  • Non-Members: $289 (includes a one year annual membership in the Sacramento Chapter of ASTD, which begins the first day of class, April 25, 2014)

NOTE: The price for members translates to less than $39 per ½ day session. This is a tremendous bargain!


This session of the Fundamentals Program is being sponsored by ASTD Sacramento’s Educational Partner in 2014, the College of Continuing Education (CCE) at Sacramento State. 

ASTD Sacramento and The College of Continuing Education at Sacramento State will join the Fundamentals class for a short session on further professional development opportunities, at some point in the Fundamentals Series.
