Program Overview

Program Overview

This online instructor-led workshop spans seven weeks; each session is two hours long. The workshop is designed to help participants plan and execute their personal study plan for the CPLP using the ATD Learning System as the primary study tool. During the workshop, participants use the Learning System and a variety of interactive and reflective exercises to determine which of the 10 Areas of Expertise (AOEs) they need  to focus on to create their own personal study plan. Participants also review the requirements for the skills application exam (SAE) component of the certification process.

Each course group will have access to an online community for their course. Upon course completion, course participants will have the option of joining an inclusive online community of all course participants for ongoing peer support and exchange.

About the ATD Learning System

The registration fee includes online access to the new ATD Learning System. The Learning System will be offered in both a digital access format and a fully searchable and printable PDF. The ten modules (Areas of Expertise) will be accessible by course participant during and after the course. The ATD Learning System is required for this program. A Print Option is available for an additional fee at Check-Out.
