Looking to upgrade your professional credentials? ASTD's Certified Professional in Learning & Performance certification is the way to go.

This summer and fall, ASTD Tallahassee is hosting study groups for the CPLP certification exam. We're looking for workplace learning and performance professionals serious about their career to join a study group in preparation for taking the exam.

Certification exams are given in September and November; each study group will meet approximately 8-12 weeks before the exam date. Groups will have the support of experienced chapter members and national ASTD staff and include the updated version of ASTD's Learning System.

Interested in being part of a study group? Contact Kevin Kjellerup at 

The Certified Professional in Learning and Performance certification equips you with the tools to be the best in the field and tells employers that you have real world, practical expertise that can be readily applied to the current work environment. CPLP gives you the capability, credibility and confidence to be a high performing contributor in your organization.

Performance Improvement SIG

The ATD Competency Model defines the skills and knowledge required for successful training and development professionals. It captures changes driven by digital, mobile, and social technology; demographic shifts; globalization; and economic forces. The model emphasizes six foundational competencies important to everyone and ten specific areas of expertise – functional competencies – that are specific to the training and development profession.

This Special Interest Group for Performance Improvement explores each one of the ten areas in depth. We’ll pursue a process for identifying, assessing, and analyzing human performance gaps and for closing them. Each meeting's focus is determined by participants' interests and questions.
