According to the U.S. Department of Labor, a stackable credential is “part of a sequence of credentials that can be accumulated over time to build up an individual’s qualifications and help them to move along a career pathway or up a career ladder to different and potentially higher-paying jobs.” From ongoing education to more achievement-focused certificates and certifications, ATD offers a depth and breadth of professional development offerings that serve talent development professionals throughout their careers. Drawing from an extensive offering of content, resources, courses, and certifications, ATD has created a stackable career development framework to guide talent development professionals who would like to engage with ATD to grow their knowledge, skills, and abilities in a structured and progressive way. This enables a flexible and customizable approach, and has a progression that allows practitioners to apply the knowledge and skills gained in one stack toward other stacks—saving time and money—now and throughout their entire careers. Join us to learn about this exciting new initiative from ATD.
