    Value of Certification

    Based upon the ATD Capability Model, CPTD is an esteemed credential provided to talent development professionals who successfully complete the requirement. The preparation is an intense process that takes several months and has many benefits:

    • Build and validate talent development skills

    • Differentiate yourself in a competitive market

    • Broaden your career opportunities

    • Join an elite professional community

    The CPTD exam is grounded in the ATD Talent Development Capability Model and covers a subset of knowledge and skills and focuses on the application of knowledge and decision making.

    The CPTD is a professional certification for Talent Development professionals with at least five years of experience. It is broad and measures a professional's knowledge and skill application across the breadth of talent development capabilities.

    Successful CPTDs report that the process of studying and getting their CPTD designation was a tremendous growth opportunity, allowing them to both learn and give back to the profession, and made a positive impact on their careers.

    For more information, please contact Sheila Adkins, CPTD at sheila.adkins@swimtothesky.com

    Intentional Learning, Reflective Practice  and Resources 

    Program: 

    Reflection is an essential aspect of adult learning and growth. Using poetry, writing, story sharing, and inquiry, we will explore our own personal and professional development goals and intentions. Participants will acknowledge and appreciate the lessons of this past year, identify areas of interest for continued learning, and develop their motivation and potential for learning in the coming year. We will also spend time sharing resources, support, and best practices to help us make and keep our own development a priority. In preparation for our time together, be thinking about these questions: What are you curious about? What is a problem you need to solve? What have you “been meaning to get to”? Bring a few resources to share: a favorite book, podcast, TED talk, website, article, influencer, class, quote, poem, song, habit or practice you have found essential, helpful, or nourishing in your own development. We will curate a shared list for future reference!

      ATD Capability Model

      Intentional Learning, Reflective Practice and Resources touches upon - Communication, Lifelong Learning, Career & Leadership Development, Performance ImprovementCommunication is about connecting with others. Effectively communicating requires a knowledge of communication principles and techniques that allows a person to articulate the appropriate message for a particular audience. It requires active listening, facilitating dialogue, and the ability to express thoughts, feelings, and ideas clearly, concisely, and compellingly.
