Ordinary instructional designers just don’t get it….
There was a time when having expertise was enough, but today (if you actually want to get engagement, learning and retention), you need to do more.
So how do you do it?
How do you build “curriculum” that turns instructional design into engagement, learning and retention?
Fortunately, that’s what you’re about to learn.
FACT: Businesses Need Instructional Designers
(…Who Actually Know What They’re Doing)
I’m not going to sell you on the importance of instructional design.
If you’re here, you already know it’s an essential aspect of any training strategy, because instructional design:
Increases ROI and efficiency…
Engages and nurtures both employees and trainers by providing ACTUAL results, and most importantly it…
Enables your training to be engaging (and stick consistently!)
In other words, instructional design increases ROI and efficiency and lowers employee turnover: The lifeblood of any business.
So that’s why businesses need instructional designers.
There’s just one problem: Most so called “instructional designers” don’t know what they’re doing.
That’s where you come in.
As an Instructional Design Specialist, you are uniquely qualified to help business convert training into engagement, learning and retention.

About the Instructor
Jason Teteak is the Founder and CEO of Rule the Room Train the Trainer. Jason first made a reputation in the medical training industry, where he was known as “the Epic trainer of trainers.” In response to many requests, he began to offer personalized services and quickly developed a following as a private training coach and training consultant whose clientele includes elite institutions, universities, and top corporations.
In 20 years of working as a trainer and a trainer coach, he has helped more than 15,000 training professionals to “Rule the Room” and has appeared before more than 200,000 people. He’s won praise and a wide following for his original methods, his engaging style, and his knack for transferring training skills via practical, simple, universal and immediately actionable techniques. Or as he puts it “No theoretical fluff”.
He founded Rule the Room Train the Trainer with a mission to DOUBLE the impact of 10,000 training professionals in the next 5 years. The Rule the Room Train the Trainer team, under Jason’s management, has flipped the model and changed the approach to great training and instruction for even the most seasoned veterans.
Rule the Room Instructional Design Pro Is Different
Sure, you can probably find other “instructional design” trainings and certifications that cover similar topics, but Rule the Room instructional design is unique because it’s built and taught by real trainers who actually write and train their own classes and observe, coach and train thousands of trainers to mastery.
In other words, we aren’t “researchers” sharing “theoretical fluff”. We’re in-the-trenches trainers who despise untested theory and believe that the best way to learn training techniques is to actually get up and teach in front of a real classroom. If that sounds like something that fits you, then welcome! You’re in the right place.
Instructional Design Pro Course: Reviews
“Jason’s methods set the standard by which other trainers measure themselves. When I experience a problem in class or another trainer asks me for advice, the first thing that goes through my mind is, what would Jason do in this situation?”
Bren Mochocki - Software Trainer & Corporate Trainer Coach
“Jason is an engaging teacher who is not only knowledgeable about this field, but is intensely passionate about it. This course not only gave me the knowledge, insight, and skills to excel in this new role, but the confidence to implement these new skills and to share this knowledge with others.”
Lorielle Ouimette - Physician Software Trainer
“Jason’s passion for helping trainers is so contagious. When I work with him, not only do I want to be a better trainer, I want to be able to help others the way that he helped me.”
Sarah Gernetzke - Corporate Trainer at Epic
“You taught me and many, many other trainers here how to not only survive in the classroom, but how to thrive. We owe you a big thanks.”
Paul Mellon - Software Trainer
“So many of us have become better instructional designers/presenters/trainers/etc. as a result of your tips and in turn helped our customer trainers grow in their presentation skills as well.”
Lauren Wons - Training Team Lead
“Jason’s experience with teaching and working with our trainers and trainees has given him an unmatched knowledge of how to best train adult learners. During our sessions, he not only helped me develop the techniques to be a great presenter, but he told me exactly why those techniques work and why they are important to my audience. I was quickly able to incorporate many of his tried-and-true methods, such as standing in the “sweet spot” and making eye-contact with everyone every few minutes, and IMMEDIATELY saw an improvement with my class engagement and understanding. His genuine and passionate interest in training is apparent and contagious-Jason truly embodies what it means to be a great trainer and inspires those around him to do the same.”
Leanne Britton - Software Trainer
“Jason embodies the meaning of the word "coach". Always accommodating, he meets others on their terms and speaks their language in order to communicate everything necessary. You will be hard pressed to catch Jason idly spinning his wheels or wasting time. Everything he does is for a reason and is building toward something. Given the variety of education and psychology theory that he has spontaneously absorbed and researched over the years, Jason always tailors a custom plan for growth and development based on what is truly needed then and there. Every roadblock is anticipated and resolved before it occurs. It is very easy to work with Jason. As a true leader, he always makes you feel like you were the one to come up with the solution, or you arrived at your own realizations without any guidance on his part. Would that more of us were so gentle yet effective.”
Anthony Arlotta - Technical Trainer
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: “How will this Instructional Design course help me?”
A: It depends on who you are…..
If you’re a business owner, this certification is a great way to learn instructional design yourself. It’s also a great way to train and certify members of your own team and get them up to speed in half the time on the latest instructional design trends and best practices.
If you’re a consultant, this certification is a practical way to show that you are an Instructional Design Specialist, which could help you attract better, higher-paying clients, boost their ROI and efficiency, and lower turnover, safety and security concerns.
If you’re a student, this certificate can set you apart from other graduates who may have a business or education degree, but don’t have the specialized skills that employers today are looking for.
If you’re an employee or training professional, this certificate can make you more valuable to your company, which can get you that raise or promotion you may deserve (but don’t have a reason to request).
Q: “How valuable is this Instructional Design Course?”
A: The course itself is highly valuable if your goal is to set yourself apart from the competition. What’s even MORE valuable than any course is the knowledge and understanding you’re going to gain when you take this class and pass all the tests. You will know instructional design. I’ll say that again: YOU WILL KNOW INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN.
Q: “When do I have to finish the class?”
A: You can go at whatever pace suits you best! You’ve got a lot of other things going on in your life, so just because you enroll in the workshop doesn’t mean you need to complete it right away. In fact, you can start and finish the workshop whenever you want. Either way, we’re going to be there with you every step of the way to ensure you’re successful and can get certified.
Q: “How soon can I finish the class?”
A: The Instructional Design Mastery class is in three parts. You will need the three courses to complete the 16 hours of video training, so if you are dedicating yourself full time to it, you could probably finish in 3 days, but we don’t recommend that. Instead, we recommend you take 7 – 14 days (if you can give your full attention to the material. If you only have a little bit of time each day, then you should dedicated 4 – 6 weeks to finish it up and take the test.
Q: “How certain can I be that I will finish?”
A: It’s never a guarantee. If it was, then our course wouldn’t mean anything. Instead, it does mean something, and because of that, you’re going to have to work at this thing to get completed. When you do finish, you can be certain that it will actually mean something. The class and the activities are both going to challenge you, but rest assured we make everything simple, easy to understand, and quick to learn. With that said, you will have to earn your completion.
Q: “How hard is the course?”
A: You can liken our course to the story of “goldilocks and the three bears” – not too hot and not too cold. In other words, they’re hard enough that you need to study and know your stuff, but we don’t make them intentionally hard just to be difficult. We make them as hard as they need to be to make sure you know how to “Rule the Room”. We believe learning doesn’t happen until a behavior change occurs, so to preserve the integrity of this certification, we have made the test challenging and the questions specific to our proprietary Rule the Room Train the Trainer techniques, methodologies and recipes. Don’t expect to pass the test just because you have taken other trainings or certification courses in the past. This training is different, and the course will reflect those differences.
Q: Why are Instructional Designers so valuable?
A: Instructional Design is the front line effort of all your training and retention efforts. If you know how to develop appropriate content at the right time in the employee and customer journey, and Exactly how to implement it, then you’ll be able to build a path to better results and ensure everyone knows how to do their part in the best way possible. When you can help others teach twice as much in even less time, you’ll be one of the most essential employees at your organization.
