Join the CPTD Virtual Study Group!


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

Based on the Association for Talent Development (ATD) capability model*, the CPTD is an  esteemed credential 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 Models

The CPTD is grounded in the ATD Capabilities model and covers a subset of knowledge and skills. 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 APTD focuses on a subset of capabilities from the Talent Development Capability Model and how to use that knowledge in talent development. 

Upcoming Study Group Schedule

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

Chapter members - FREE 
Non-chapter members - $100
