Introduction to the
ATD Competency Model 
Certified Professional in Learning & Performance (CPLP)

July 15, 2015

The ATD Competency Model guides our profession toward the goal of improving organizational performance through training and development activities. It emphasizes foundational competencies, or those that are important to everyone in the field, and specific areas of expertise (AOEs), which are the specialized knowledge and actions required by specific roles.

The foundational competencies are the bedrock on which to build more specific competencies. They are critical regardless of the specific organization, industry, or AOE in which a person practices.

To stay relevant and effective in today's dynamic organizations, training and development professionals should ask themselves, "What competencies do I need to focus on, and how do I get started?" It is important to note that the model is both broad and deep. The extent to which each individual needs to master the various competencies depends on a person's current role and future aspirations.

The CPLP is a certification that helps professionals in the Talent Development field increase credibility, growth opportunities, knowledge and performance.  

Program Objectives: 
  • Understand the ATD Competency Model Foundations and Areas of Expertise (AOE)
  • Experience a mini-practice knowledge exam from the Areas of Expertise
  • Familiarize yourself with a variety of resources to learn more about the AOE
  • Learn the CPLP Certification basics 
  • Bringing your laptop is encouraged so you can review the online resources in the session.
