Training Is Golden

Looking back through the years as Training magazine celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Lyndon B. Johnson was president. The Animals’ “The House of the Rising Sun” and Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman” topped the song charts, while Mary Poppins ruled the cinema. A gallon of milk cost $1.06. People called on rotary phones. Magazines such as Life and Look cost 25 to 35 cents an issue.

It was fall 1964 as Training magazine debuted its inaugural September/October issue. Fast-forward 50 years, and the U.S. has its first African-American president in Barack Obama. Singers such as Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga continue their eyebrowraising antics. A gallon of milk costs nearly $4. Millions of people communicate via smart phones. And a large majority of magazines have gone entirely digital.

Much has changed over the last 50 years—both in the world and the training industry—and Training magazine has been there every step of the way. From classroom training to virtual training, simulations, online learning, social learning, and more, Training has detailed the solutions, case studies, and best practices Learning professionals need to succeed. As Training magazine celebrates its 50th anniversary, we thought you would enjoy a blast from the past with a retrospective of covers through the years. Here’s to another 50 years of Training!
