Are you considering pursuing the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) credential, but aren't sure if you're ready?

Are you registered for the Knowledge Exam or Skills Application Exam, but looking for some advice on what study techniques have worked in the past? Or, do you have more general questions around the potential impact the CPLP can have on your career and goals? 

If these or any other burning talent development credential questions are on your mind, join us for an hour-long interactive webcast featuring three current CPLPs. Each panel member will share why they chose the CPLP, how they knew (or didn’t know) they were ready, their tried and true test preparations, and the impact the certification has had on their professional life. Throughout the 60 minutes, panelists will take any and all questions you may have.

In this webcast, you will learn: 

• if the CPLP is right for you
• the best ways to approach the exam process
• helpful hints on how to maximize the value of your study time
• pitfalls to avoid during the credentialing process
• the value of the credential from CPLP holders' perspectives.

Event Description: Be sure to submit a specific question or two for the panelists when you register to attend.
