Differentiate Yourself

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

The Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) certification is the only credential covering the entire breadth of the talent development profession.

In addition to formal degrees, between a fifth and a third of talent development professionals also pursue a variety of certifications that pertain to functional specialties. The CPLP is among the most in-demand of these certifications. This investment of time, energy, and certification fees yields not only a tangible economic return—professional certifications increase the likelihood of earning more than $70,000 by an average of 10 percentage points—but also many intangible benefits. In the graphic that follows, see what Maureen Orey, CPLP, believes the certification can do for you.


Set yourself apart. Prove you have what it takes.
