What is the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP)™?
The ASTD Certification Institute built the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP)™ credential to provide a way for workplace learning and performance professionals to prove their worth to employers and their peers and to be confident about their knowledge of the field. By earning your CPLP designation, you communicate to your employers that you are not only dedicated to continuing your education but also validate your expertise in learning and performance.
The training and development profession has undergone significant transformation in the last decade. The ASTD Competency Model redefines the skills and knowledge required for trainers to be successful now and in the future. It captures changes driven by digital, mobile, and social technology; demographic shifts; globalization; and economic forces.
Participants in the program will not only be confident and prepared for the CPLP Certification exam, but they will also network with other workplace learning and performance professionals, gain professional development through interactive discussions and exercises and provide a quality learning and performance system to your organization.
Those eligible for the CPLP certification are professionals in the learning and performance field and have a minimum of three years of related work experience, although five years of related work experience is preferred.
