ATD's Stackable Framework allows you to combine your skills and years of experience to find the path that's right for you, saving you time and propelling your career forward.
Using real-world examples and breaking out our Stackable Framework model into segments, Holly Batts, MS, CAE, PMP walks you step-by-step through how the framework works for you and how building your credentials creates a proven path to success.
Our live, online workshops and on-demand modules are perfect for those looking to brush up on skills, gain focused experience in a specified talent development area, or gain knowledge by learning on their own time.
Resting on a base supported by The ATD Competency Model, our on-demand courses, live-online courses, and webcasts provide an opportunity for learning and continued enrichment for professionals at all levels of their careers. These offerings are all online, eliminating the need for travel and giving you the flexibility to drop in virtually at any time, from any place.
The next step in the framework is ATD Certificate programs. These are classroom-based, online, or on-site offerings that focus on comprehensive skills and concepts. Many of the certificates count toward the continuing education requirements of ATD Certifications, as well as those of SHRM and HRCI.
The popular ATD Masters Series is a collection of assessment-based certificate programs focused on mastery of one area of expertise. They include a knowledge assessment and final project. Successful completion of a qualified ATD Masters program will allow you to test out of certain areas of the Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) exam and, coming later in 2018, the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) Knowledge Exam.
At this point in your career, you've been around and seen some things. You're ready for the Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD). With eligibility, assessment, and recertification, this certification proves you know your stuff!
The APTD covers three primary areas of expertise from The ATD Competency Model, and can be a stepping-stone to the CPLP for some learners or a destination for others.
Earning the APTD certification can significantly help early-career professionals prove their knowledge of talent development, and will enable a practitioner to test out of the three primary areas of expertise on the CPLP Knowledge Exam.
You're an expert in your field and you're ready to prove it!
The CPLP remains the industry’s premier talent development certification. It includes a Knowledge Exam covering all 10 areas of expertise from the competency model and an in-depth Skills Application Exam. Recertification to maintain both the CPLP and the APTD is required, and is accomplished by earning continuing education points.
