The CPLP and APTD Certification Handbooks are the technical guides for the CPLP and the APTD programs and provide individuals with everything they need to understand to complete the certification process. These are the primary sources for CPLP and APTD program support and are a must read for candidates. Candidates must follow all policies, procedures, and deadlines outlined in this Handbook. The ATD Certification Institute (ATD CI) reserves the right to change the standards, application, and requirements for certification and recertification and will do so as necessary; therefore, it is important that candidates refer to the Handbook on an ongoing basis to ensure they have access to the most current information. The most recent versions of the CPLP and APTD Certification Handbooks can be downloaded below.
