As an employer you know the importance of ensuring employees continue learning and keep their skills up to date. Professional certifications, such as the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) and the new Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD), validate knowledge and skills, and require demonstration of experience and expertise.
The CPLP is a mark of distinction offered by the ATD Certification Institute. It is broad in scope and addresses a talent development professional’s knowledge in 10 areas of expertise, as defined by The ATD Competency Model plus the Global Mindset Foundational Competency.
A recent Robert Half staffing firm poll stated, "A majority of CFOs interviewed (72 percent) said their company covers some or all of the cost for staff to obtain professional certifications, and 76 percent said their organization helps in maintaining credentials once earned. "
Here is some recent data from an ATD Certification Institute study on the value of CPLP:
