With the recent release of ATD's new Talent Development Capability Model there will be changes to the APTD and CPLP (now CPTD) exams. Explore the model to learn more about the new standard for talent development, see what is changing with ATD Certification overall, or go to the (current) CPLP pages if you are ready to test before June 30, 2020.
The exam fee covers a testing seat for the CPTD exam, exam score report, and a CPTD certificate and lapel pin once the credential is achieved. Prep courses and materials are optional and not included in the exam fee.
How do I Register for the Exam?
To register for the exam go to the CPTD Application system (access will be available starting April 1). If it is your first time in the application system, you may need to complete additional fields and indicate that you are interested in the CPTD program.
If you require accommodations, please submit an ADA application 10 weeks before your selected testing window so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
