The Preparing for the APTD On-Demand Course is a personalized learning experience; it was designed to accelerate your knowledge of the areas of expertise (AOEs) tested on the Associate Professional for Talent Development (APTD) certification exam. The course provides in-depth coverage of the content in the three main AOEs covered on the APTD exam: instructional design, training delivery, and learning technologies. Material on evaluating learning impact and building a global mindset are also covered because these topics are also touched upon in the exam. The course combines classic theory with some of the most current information available.
The Preparing for the APTD On-Demand course is delivered on a platform that adapts in real time to each user’s behavior and performance to make learning efficient, effective, and engaging. As learners answer questions based on a series of learning objectives aligned to the key actions in each AOE, data are gathered on their performance and used to guide them to deeper learning. The technology is based on educational theory and cognitive science that explores memory, metacognition, and the personalized delivery of concepts. The questions in this course are not the same questions on the exam, but will help you assess where your gaps in knowledge are and help you master the information quickly. This course includes resources and suggested reading from the ATD Learning System, an online textbook.
