The courses offered by ISTD is very good & informative and provide sharp knowledge related to OB, OD & procedures of T&D. It is a specialized course in T&D. Also ISTD help for employment. You all can choose this course. It is worthy for HR professionals.
If any other information required pl. write.

As far as my view is concerned self awareness & self developement is the most suitable way for growth. ISTD course is not a tough one. You just go through the syllabus & prepare as ur level best. Hope u hav no. of books & materials on T & D, OB during ur MBA/MHRM study, if not then u can buy it from the market which r easily available. Most courses have already covered during ur HR study. I can help u on T & D as I'm currently looking after the same for my orgainzation i.e how to handle T & D activities in an org.
This is only my sugestion to you.
All the best
Thanks & Reagrds
I jus saw your mail asking about the ISTD course.Let me put it to you frankly....I did my ISTD course in 2003. I found that it was just another course for the sake of a Govt. Recogn.
The contents were not in depth, there were no contact classes. You just need to do some Q & A and send it.
Since I have done my M.Ed. I found this was jus a few leaves out of it.
Some of the notes are so badly done [syntax, grammar etc.]
I have not come across any good course in India [ if anybody has some clue please inform]
If you have time go thru the 'Training Journal' found in British Council Library, they give you some real good inputs what a training course should offer and what its end product will be.
Well if you want another Dip T.D. at the end of your name go ahead.
It was really nice of you to share your experience with me.
Now atleast I now where the pitfalls are.
Any way since I have already taken the admission , I think now all of it depends on me how & what I make out of it.
So wish me luck.
Even I have taken admission for the same course commencing Jan 2008. I spoke with the person dealing with the course at ISTD, and she told me that the course material would be available in the first/second week of January. The first semester for us would be in June 2008, for 4 papers ... B4 that we have to submit the response sheets, I guess by March. I have downloaded the details , if you are keen I could send them to you. The fact that we are enrolled for the same course, and might have to attend contact classes (optional), we may exchange notes regarding handling the course. My mail ID is

For Shruti ...... This a distance learning course, and attending contact classes are optional ...... but last date for enrolling was 30 Nov, so yould try for the course commencing July 2008.
also lemme knowif i can enrol in this or not?
m pursuing my mba in hr n will complete it in may 2008.
so can i enroll
looking for the replies..
I plan to join the july'08 batch.I have gone thru the istd site in detail. Since I stay in mumbai, are there any contact classes here?
do i have to make payments directly to delhi or where?
Is the course material sent enough to write the exams or do i have to read additional books?
kindly help me asap in order to complete the formalities.
Welcome on board at ISTD.
See first of all do not think its very easy and beacuse of distance learning anybody can clear this diploma...........I am not scearing you.. TELLING FACT.
You have to mug up with istd material as well as refrence books for extra learning other wise istd books are enough.
Learning should be open minded as in papars they are seeking answer with student point of view. so do not follow book perspective.
try to give answer as per your concept and in little elobrated mannar.
Try to sumbit assignment as soon as possible because with ut assignment you can not sit for exams.
I hope you will understand the process of ISTD and if you have any doubt then revert it back to me.
Even i have just enrolled in this course and am waiting to hear if i have gotten admission or not.
Is it difficult to get accepted for this course? Since there was no entrance exam or anything i am wondering if they accept anyone who applies and has the minimum eligibilty or do they screen the applicants based on education..experience etc?
Thanks for the help in advance..
Maybe we should start a group so we can exchange ideas and help each other out for assignments.
If anyone is interested and has started the course or is starting this July feel free to email me and based on the response I'll try to set up a group for ISTD'ians :)
you can email me at
I have just completed my ISTD Diploma, I am a HR Professional and working in as a Manager HR is an IT Software Company.
As you said earlier
"I need some guidance regarding how to go about it, how the course is, which books to read, how to prepare for the semesters etc"
For me This Course is a stepping stone of my career, it does provide me an enormous sphere in Human Resource.
I useto attend ISTD weekend classes, which was taken by HR Professional that sessions were very useful and informative, I came across a no. of individuals some of now become a good pal of mine, personally as well as professionally
ISTD course material
After enrollment ISTD Staff would provide you the course material, That is excellent one just go with that, for further studies just use ISTD Library its fabulous.
As far as preparation is concern that’s up to you, as per your conveniences you mold you’re self, if you have a time then I suggest you go with regular studies, its worthwhile.
If you have any queries regarding the same pls. feel free to ask.
I saw your name on one of the threads of CiteHr- Guide me in completing the ISTD- Diploma
I have completed my B.Tech (I.T.) and looking forward to joining MBA(HR) by july 2010,from some reputed institution.
Actually I need your suggestion regarding the ISTD DIPLOMA, whether it will be beneficial to me at the time of campus placements in 2011 & 2012 ....OR should i do some other certification courses/diploma etc., before or during my MBA(HR) Programme.
Or should i just go ahead with my MBA(HR) only.....
Please do suggest something so that i can start as early as possible....
I am working as a software professional in one of the reputed MNC in Mumbai. I have done my B.E.(Telecom) with PG Diploma in Business Mgmt and HR Mgmt. Will the Diploma in T&D help me in any way in the long run? Or is an MBA (HR) needed to be eligible for this course?
Thanks in advance
