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. The ASTD (American Society for Training & Development) is the world’s largest association dedicated to workplace learning and performance professionals. Members work in thousands of organizations of all sizes, in government, as independent consultants, and suppliers. 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.
CPLP designation showcases the workplace learning professional’s knowledge and performance in the ten areas of expertise as defined by the ASTD Competency Model. 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.
What is the Work Product?
For the work product submission, candidates will need to complete three different components:
- Project Work (Work Product) and Project Essays – Candidates provide a sample of their project work and answer eight related essay questions which enable them to provide rationale and documentation to support their project sample.
- Challenge Questions – Candidates respond to two challenge essay questions that are completely independent of their project work. One question is strategic in nature; the other is operational or tactical in its focus.
- Standard Forms – Candidates complete a number of other forms such as a contact information form and release and permission forms designed to protect all parties legally.

CPLP™ is a credential for learning and performance professionals offered by the ASTD Certification Institute. It is broad-based and addresses nine areas of expertise as defined by the ASTD Competency Model.
