Stand Out in the Crowd - Become a CPLP!

The Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) is a credential for learning and performance professionals offered by the ATD Certification Institute (ATD CI).  It is broad-based and addresses ten areas of expertise as defined by the ATD Competency Model:  Instructional Design, Training Delivery, Performance Improvement, Evaluating Learning Impact, Managing Learning Programs, Coaching, Integrated Talent Management, Change Management, Knowledge Management, and Learning Technologies.

CPLP credentialing represents a level of professional achievement and competence. Just as important, achieving the credential demonstrates proficiency in support of learners and organizational performance and sets a standard of commitment to the learning and development profession.  Becoming CPLP certified makes you a leader as well as a role model in the learning and development community.
