I appreciate how easy they are to work with and how invested they are in my projects.”
Development and Training Manager
“We have been working with TTA for over a year on LMS module creation for our new e-learning system, with a “turnkey” process that has kept us on schedule, with continuous two-way communication. Their professionalism and 100% deadline success rate for us have been nothing short of impressive, and why we continue to want to work with the TTA team.”
“Between TTA and our internal candidates, I believe I’ll be able to fill the last position. I couldn’t have accomplished this without TTA’s partnership. Thank you so much!”

Director, Educational Consulting and Training
“TTA has provided us with the services of several contract instructional designers during 2021. They helped us handle a handful of situations where our company had more work than it could handle. In each case, the contractors provided were professional, competent, quick learners, and carried out the needed services successfully.
Additionally, TTA’s employees we work with have all been dedicated to providing outstanding service to our company. TTA has delivered what we needed to help make 2021 a successful business year.”

Manager, Talent Development Programs
“TTA has been a great pleasure to work with over the last few years. They have helped design our specific materials and provided exceptional trainers for our outsourced subjects, and our project manager is awesome, she keeps us totally organized and on track. I couldn’t be happier with all they have done to make our ongoing Supervisor training a success.”
“We have worked with TTA for a few years now and they are a key partner for contract talent – for example, on one of our contracts, we were looking for an instructional designer but got much more regarding instructional strategy, project management, change management, and design thinking, and this project won a Brandon Hall award in 2022.
They are very responsive and seek to understand the business and project objectives before offering candidates, and, once placed, ensure a strong partnership with timely check-ins. We will certainly continue working with TTA for future needs.”
Director, Sales Development Operational Excellence (AMS)
“TTA is an amazing company to work with. I was fully supported by a team of professionals from my initial contact to the final invoice. TTA reps and recruiters heard and understood my need for an exceptionally skilled instructional designer.
While two other companies were suggesting I consider lower skills, TTA was locating several qualified candidates, and scheduling interviews at times that worked in my time zone and calendar. It was also such a pleasure working with Joseph who is a very talented instructional designer, reliable, and flexible.
Thank you TTA for making my job easier, and helping both me and my team reach our time and quality goals. My TTA rep, Eryne Busch, was so professional, kind, and helpful in sourcing contract talent to fit my project needs. She was always available, guided me through options, and arranged a team of recruiters to assist with reviewing resumes and interviews. As projects changed, the TTA team assisted with pivots, fully supporting my L&D needs. TTA is the first company I will contact for future contract L&D talent.”
Director, Learning & Development
“We were looking to provide an expanded instructor bench quickly, to provide our world-class training with world-class instructors. TTA really helped us design a template for us using very specific and focused scoping questions to help find exactly who we were looking for from the start.
Not only was the process quick and easy, but they brought us amazing talent to help ensure we didn’t lose quality and are still able to provide the best for our customers.
Working with TTA is simply, simple. We demand the best for our customers and we strive to provide that every day. TTA allows us to scale and keep that promise. We have formed a great partnership with TTA and look forward to that continued partnership.”
Sr. Manager, Education Delivery
“I’ve been using TTA for over a year now. The TTA customer success team is very responsive to our project needs and works hard to provide us with the right person for the right job. The communication between TTA and their customers is awesome and they work hard to make sure they’re providing their clients with quality candidates.”
Sr. Corporate Recruiter
“TTA has been a true partner, they delivered fast with quality resources that we needed at a fair and responsible rate. TTA has been easy to work with and sends exactly the scope of candidates we ask of them. We would continue to partner with TTA when we step out of our comfort skill set zone.
TTA has shown to be an honest partnership to work with and deal with several people in the organization. All have been extremely friendly professional and very helpful and would continue to use the organization.”
“We have partnered with TTA for 2+ years and it has been one of the best experiences we could ask for! With the growth of our organization, the demand for training and development has increased, and partnering with TTA allows us to expand our offerings and bring in top-tier talent to lead productive and effective sessions.
The team at TTA works with us to find incredible instructors for a variety of topics and always ensures we can tailor the sessions to meet our specific needs. Between sourcing and managing our multiple projects, TTA has definitely made our job easier! I trust them to provide our team with the best training available and I look forward to continuing our partnership with TTA and seeing what new opportunities we can bring to our organization.”
“TTA provided Challenge Manufacturing with a skilled instructional designer for a short-term, highly visible project. I was impressed with their ability to quickly understand our needs and match us with a quality instructional designer. TTA was easy to work with. They communicated with us regularly throughout the project.
Overall, we had a very positive experience working with TTA. I would definitely recommend TTA to anyone looking for top-notch training and development talent.”
Director of Learning & Development
“As the Director of Consumer Education at Cricut, I partnered with TTA to administer a training program for new customers. They provided a full stack of talent, from an experienced project manager to savvy technical producers to energetic facilitators.
We trained thousands of new customers together, consistently earning high Net Promoter Scores behind the strength of this contract team, and demonstrably increasing customer engagement with our products. TTA made it easy to work with from the beginning, with smooth contract negotiations, regular meetings with their team, and ongoing check-ins to ensure continued success. We even brought one employee in-house because of her talent and value to our program — a seamless process that saved us recruiting costs. I’d recommend TTA to anyone who’s moving fast and wants to flex their learning and development.”
Director of Consumer Education
“Working with TTA is so easy! We were candid up front with our expectations, the skills needed, and the deliverables we expected – they did not disappoint! There are constant checkpoints to ensure everything is running smoothly and input from our IDs is gathered.
We want them to feel like part of a team and know they are valued. TTA manages the business aspects and the relationships to ensure they are recognized as people and an important extension of our team.
We have been so pleased with the quality of candidates they’ve provided, the work ethic we’ve experienced, and the team mentality, it’s one of the best vendor experiences I’ve had in my 35-year career.”
Adoption Director, Learning
“The team at TTA crafted a solution for us quickly and efficiently by listening to our needs and placing a dedicated client manager as our partner. With a portfolio as vast as that of SAE International, our offerings change often.
We also have a sales team dedicated to providing corporate learning solutions for private offerings. These can be booked daily with a turnaround time of 3 weeks or less.
It didn’t take the TTA team long at all to realize that we needed a real-time solution to manage the volume. Your IT team went to work developing the training delivery schedule portal which allows us to utilize our Learning Management System to run reports, enter the information into the portal, and for TTA to assign the producers with the skillsets needed for each particular seminar.”
Senior Learning Operations and Delivery Manager
“I found TTA through a marketing email I received from them. I had been considering bringing in an outside consultant to deliver content on coaching and leadership for some of our team leaders, so the email came at a perfect time.
After meeting with TTA and their recommended speaker, I chose them to conduct the workshop because of the ease of scheduling, the attentiveness of the team at TTA, and the content I desired. The team members who attended the one-day workshop received relevant and specific high-level information. Our speaker kept them engaged and participatory throughout the entire session. I have already been asked when we will be offering more of these developmental opportunities.
Because of TTA, I was able to meet my objective of providing guidance to our management team in a comfortable and productive environment with a truly inspirational speaker. I look forward to working with TTA in the future.”
Director of Learning and Development
“TTA provided me with a learning strategist who was very knowledgeable and patient. TTA patiently and intentionally listened to me share my ideas about creating an internal leadership development program.
TTA gave me a resource to brainstorm the nuisances of creating an internal leadership program and helped me to organize all my ideas into an implementation plan!
Working with TTA made me feel privileged to have a learning strategist who was as invested in my organization’s learning goals as I was. It was a true delight!”
VP | Director of Talent Development
“Partnering with TTA to deliver Rapid7 certification courses has enabled significant growth in our service offerings. Their excellent recruiting team has access to a talent pool that we would not be able to reach on our own.
With TTA, we have a deep bench of highly talented instructors; this allows us to scale delivery across the globe and respond quickly to our customers’ needs. Our CSAT scores increased significantly after transitioning to TTA delivery resources, and our profit margins grew by 10% by outsourcing.
The TTA folks that we work with are an extension of our team, and we are grateful every day for the peace of mind we enjoy. We know the instructors are taking care of our customers in our classrooms, and we know our account and project managers are advocating for our shared success. TTA brings years of knowledge and experience to the relationship; every ounce of trust and confidence we have in their excellence has been rewarded with great outcomes for Rapid7 customers.
We will continue to partner with TTA as long as we have a need to deliver Instructor-Led Training. Additionally, I look forward to expanding our scope of work together as we explore additional instructional design projects that we need auxiliary talent to complete.”
Sr. Manager of Education Services
“As a global corporation that is growing rapidly and wants to support team members in their professional journey, we turn to TTA for those solutions.
Currently, we have a library of over 6,000 courses within our LMS but sometimes it is necessary to have a live presenter who understands the specific barriers, learning goals, and team dynamics to ensure a successful training.
During our time using TTA, we have utilized them for one-on-one style training and also larger group training on leadership. The process ensured me that TTA was going to do a great job; the facilitator assigned was flexible to alter the course outline to fit the needs of our company. Along with wanting concrete examples so they can be woven into the course.”
HR Business Partner
“I have had the privilege to work with TTA for the better part of 12 years in a couple of different capacities. One as Manager of Program Delivery at a large tech firm and now as a Managing Partner looking to expand our delivery capacity.
In both roles, TTA has helped us to find, assess, and deploy contract resources on different sales and leadership enablement programs with a great deal of success. The portfolio of available resources is impressive and has enabled us to continue building the capacity and capability to grow our business.
I can clearly see with the ever-changing markets we work in we will need to continue to leverage TTA to help us find and resource the right people for the job we have to deliver to our customers. TTA has been exceptional to this end and highly recommend their services.”
“It was a fabulous experience working with TTA. My two reps were so friendly and caring from both a personal aspect and a business aspect. They listened to my learning and development challenges and requests and led with empathy to help me solve and execute them.
We worked together in lockstep to develop a comprehensive training schedule with my preferred trainers across the year. We also ensured we stayed on the same page from a budget and spending perspective.
I loved working with TTA because I got a lot of value from their products and services. The TTA training courses I offered to my company’s employees consistently received high Net Promoter Scores for both the class and instructor. Just a smooth and valuable experience all around.”
HR Business Partner
“TTA was open to our specific needs for background qualifications, location, and project duration. They were willing to change directions quickly as our needs shifted.
Our partners at TTA were responsive, professional, and kind. Their dedication to meeting the needs of our project was commendable. TTA was receptive to our feedback and willing to pivot as needed. They were available anytime we needed to touch base.”
“I have been in law enforcement for over 25 years, 15+ years with Union Pacific. I have attended literally HUNDREDS of hours of cultural diversity, cultural awareness, and racial profiling courses both through law enforcement and railroad resources.
TTA tackled a sensitive and potentially abrasive topic with grace, dignity, and professionalism. There were times in the day when people would question the course material or an opinion and they were able to relate to each and everyone while bringing the discussion back on topic in a meaningful way.”
“I have used many staffing agencies in my capacity as a Training Manager for multiple organizations. TTA has proven, time and again, to be the “go-to” provider for Learning & Development professionals.
Their recruiters and account managers take the time to genuinely understand my staffing needs and provide only those candidates that truly meet my requirements. Having worked with recruiting firms that rely on me to do most of the screening, I appreciate having a list of candidates that meet the technical requirements, leaving me only needing to screen for cultural fit.
I also appreciate the streamlined onboarding process that TTA uses when filling a request. I am very impressed with their ability to not only provide great candidates, but once a decision has been reached, they move very quickly to get the candidate onsite and productive. Additionally, their ongoing support is top-notch. I love having a designated point of contact to assist with payroll, time approvals, etc.
I can’t say enough how much I appreciate partnering with TTA. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to any organization looking to augment or expand its learning team.”
“TTA listened to our needs, assisted us with identifying other challenges, and provided a detailed scope of work to assist us in resolving the issues we were experiencing.
Throughout the information-gathering process and interacting with our employees- TTA identified and provided solutions to the challenges we faced by implementing templates and providing real-world unbiased analysis.
Each TTA employee we interacted with was attentive to our needs and proactive in their approach to gathering information and working with the various levels of our administration.
Our experience with TTA was exactly what we expected. A high level of professionalism and they did what they said they were going to do. No false promises and no loose ends. Their expertise provided us with value for the expense. Our employees learned a tremendous amount about the learning strategy process and Jerry was a consummate professional.”
“We had a unique profile that required a combination skillset that was somewhat unique to our organization. Because of their experience in the industry, TTA was able to understand these differences and discuss them with prospects before we met with candidates. It was a huge time savings and resulted in better hires.
Working with TTA is like collaborating with your own team members. They are responsive, friendly, and consultative. For an organization like ours, it doesn’t make sense to have our own recruiting team. We want to focus on our ed tech innovation. The partnership enables us to do what we do best and scale the capacity of our leadership team.
I would be highly likely to refer TTA to any organization in the learning and development space. They are much more knowledgeable about the industry and about the specific needs of this industry. Plus, no one has their network.”
“Eagle has worked with the team at TTA to help staff and resource critical Learning projects for our firm. Their consulting resources possess outstanding skills and professionalism and have been integral to successful learning engagements with our key clients.
TTA’s sales, staffing, and project management executives have been extremely responsive to our needs and work collaboratively with our team at Eagle to help identify the proper resources to address our specific project needs and requirements.
We would be very happy to recommend TTA to other organizations who are embarking on difficult learning initiatives. Their internal team and consulting resources are outstanding and have enabled our firm to support critical learning objectives for our clients.”
“TTA is great and does quick, efficient work. I have gotten quality candidates. What I like about working with TTA is the speed of response and willingness to help. Each time I have been given quality candidates. L&D is a very targeted niche. It is nice to have someone focused in that space.”
Learning and Development Manager
“TTA had numerous resources for us to pick from when it came to helping us design and deliver the online training we needed to do. Based on our needs, they provided resumes of several candidates, and we were able to narrow it down and speak directly to the people, to determine the best fit for our needs.
TTA understood what we wanted to do, and asked questions to ensure that they did understand.
TTA was easy to work with, even though we were dealing with several time zones, between ourselves and the resources. We had weekly project meetings to discuss progress, next steps, deliverables, and schedule, which worked out well. We always knew the work’s status and understood our obligations to ensure that TTA could keep on track.
The project scope was understood quickly by TTA, the potential resources were found quickly, and the structured weekly meetings ensured we all kept on track.”
IFE Data Governance Officer
“We developed a great partnership with The Training Associates, and their dedication to assisting us with our unique learning and development solutions is quite evident in all aspects of their work ethic. The CfPA program schedule is quite fluid and TTA’s ability to adapt quickly to changes demonstrates their flexibility and sincere willingness to accommodate. We appreciate their attention to detail and creative approach in helping us bring our business to the next level.”
“TTA has proven to be an excellent partner! We partnered with TTA to provide both immediate help with creating and delivering a fundamental leadership training program and with creating a 5-year roadmap to stand up the L&D function. TTA was able to jump into both projects at the same time, responding to the urgency of our needs.
Knowing our timeline and budget were both tight for the leadership training project, TTA accessed their wealth of content to help us craft learning objectives to meet the needs of the business while limiting the cost of development. The trainer built a unique program for our leaders and facilitated 30 virtual courses over 4 months. The support of TTA throughout the process was helpful and kept the project on track. With TTA’s help, we were able to provide our business with a solution to a long-standing need in a very short timeframe!
For the project to develop a strategic roadmap, TTA walked me through every step in the process. They quickly learned about our company and culture – a requirement for the executive-level interviews he conducted. The outcome of the project is much more robust than I anticipated. I have a roadmap for how to set up the function and the steps to do so as well as specific, identified training solutions for our organization to meet our strategic goals in 5-years.
I will continue to work with TTA for my training needs. Each person on our account has been very professional and has a great sense of urgency. They are experts in their field and are very easy to brainstorm solutions with. I do not feel like sales or business development is their primary intent, instead, it’s to truly help support companies like mine and people like me!”
VP Human Resources
“When I first heard from TTA I was in the stressful process of doubling my team. I oversee workforce development and youth programs for refugee and immigrant clients at the International Rescue Committee here in Sacramento, CA, and was planning a staff retreat to train and develop my growing team. Specifically, I asked for an expert in the realm of client coaching experienced in serving vulnerable and diverse populations. The TTA team asked plenty of questions during our meetings to ensure they understood my needs and also helped me reach clarity on what I required for a successful retreat and training.
Eventually, TTA connected me with a subject matter expert who was a better fit than I could have imagined. In my first 10 minutes, I knew that they were the perfect fit to effectively deliver this critical information to my staff. TTA factored in important logistics for the training and made communication seamless while fitting the whole packing into the confines of the budget I initially mentioned. TTA set up meetings to customize the training materials for my staff to better fit the specific context of our work
The end result was an extremely well-crafted and impactful training that left my team and me with enough content to discuss and digest for several weeks. We now meet weekly to practice some of the great coaching methodologies that we learned and I know that our ability to make a long-lasting impact within the refugee and immigrant community has expanded because of the TTA team.”
