Join the APTD/CPTD Virtual Study Group!

Have you considered elevating your talents and capabilities by becoming a Certified Profession in Talent Development (CPTD) or an Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD)?

Based on the Association for Talent Development (ATD) capability model*, the CPTD and APTD are esteemed credentials provided to talent development professionals who successfully complete the requirements. The preparation is an intense process that takes several months and has many benefits:

  • Build and validate your skills
  • Differentiate you in a competitive market
  • Broaden your career opportunities
  • Join an elite professional community

About the Model

The CPTD is grounded in the Capabilities model and covers a subset of knowledge and skills and it focuses on the application of knowledge and decision making.

How is the APTD different from the CPTD?

The APTD designation is intended for those early in their career with three to five years of experience in talent development. The primary focus of the APTD is around three areas of expertise:

  1. Training delivery
  2. Instructional design
  3. Learning technologies

Evaluating learning impact and the foundational competency of Global Mindset are also included in questions. For more information, access the ATD website at https://www.td.org/aptdlearnmore

Upcoming Schedule

Having a support system during your preparation can be extremely beneficial for your success. The Dallas Chapter partners with several other chapters to offer a virtual study group to support both the CPTD and the APTD.

The study group is free to members of the chapter members. For non-chapter individuals, it is $100.
