IOA has developed a highly successful format of education, skill building, and theory that combine to provide both the new and experienced Organizational Ombudsman practitioner with a practical approach to addressing problems in his/her respective environments. Each Professional Development program focuses on the needs of the Organizational Ombudsman at a particular experience level, and provides demonstrations or role play, theory, and education appropriate for that level. Video segments are used to enhance the case studies and Ombudsman situations.

A training manual designed for use with each program serves as a continuing source of reference. Completion Certificates are provided for those who complete each program. Early-registration discounts are offered for each course. IOA members receive a discounted registration rate.

All of IOA's trainers, while volunteers, are experienced Organizational Ombudsmen. The use of a team approach in all their training provides participants with a variety of dispute resolution styles and techniques.
