Training is a part of virtually every organization, but some are large enough to have their own human resources department or training program. In these organizations, instructional designers generally are part of a design and development team, working with graphic artists, programmers and subject-matter experts. You may be a pure designer, or you may develop and/or implement the training you design.

Many who have completed their certificate have found jobs or were promoted from their current position.
