Exploring the CPLP and APTD:
Should It Be in Your Career Plan?

The Certified Professional in Learning & Performance (CPLP) is the premier qualification of the Talent Development field. Awarded by the Association for Talent Development (ATD) Certification Institute, only 500 currently hold a CPLP demonstrating their high competency in the TD profession.

The Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) is a new certification for talent development professionals who are in the early part of their careers or whose professional roles and aspirations are focused on a few areas of expertise.

In this networking event,CPLP- and APTD-  accredited professionals will discuss their experience obtaining and maintaining the certifications and how they have contributed to their professional and organizational life.  Among the questions they will address are:

  • Why should these certifications be in your career plan?
  • Why should your organization include APTD and CPLP in its talent development plans?
  • What are the steps to achieving an APTD or a CPLP?
  • How do you prepare yourself for the APTD and CPLP?
  • How will an APTD or a CPLP contribute to my professional life and growth?

Bring your questions about the CPLP to add to the discussion.

In addition, ATDChi will be kicking off a CPLP initiative with the support of our Gold Sponsor, CARA, to support our members who have decided to add CPLP to their credentials.  Join us to learn how ATDChi continues to Advance, Build, Connect and Engage the Chicagoland TD profession and how you can participate.
