ATD-Orange County – Now Providing Professional Development Points for APTD and CPTD Certification and Recertification

03/16/2022 3:07 PM | Denise Ross-Admin (Administrator)

The next time you register for an ATD-Orange County Event, you may notice something new.  If the event provides a learning opportunity related to the Talent Development Capability Model, the number of Professional Development Points will be listed.  These points can be earned by attending the event.

The Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) and Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) certifications are awarded by the ATD Certification Institute.  One of the requirements of these certifications is that the holders need to remain current in the field and must earn continuing education points toward recertification.  People preparing to test for either certification also need to earn a specified number of professional development hours. 

Our ATD-Orange County programs have always supported the development of the capabilities in the Talent Development Capability Model. Getting the pre-approval to offer these points is one new way that we can support APTD and CPTD certification holders and those working to earn their certifications.

Whether you are a Talent Development professional in the larger Talent Development community or in our very own chapter, we hope to see you at one of our Pre-Approved events soon!

    Finally! Saves guesswork on hours and possibly even data entry time on the recert form if CI's is set up like HRCI's.
