About this Program
CPLP Prep Online is offered prior to CPLP exam windows.
The course includes exercises and quizzes that develop specific knowledge in each of the ASTD Competency Model's nine areas of expertise: (1) designing learning, (2) delivering training, (3) improving human performance, (4) measuring and evaluating learning, (5) facilitating organizational change, (6) coaching, (7) career planning and talent management, (8) managing the learning function, and (9) managing organizational knowledge. Participants work with a course mentor, an expert in the field, and benefit from the opportunity for online discussions with other WLP professionals preparing for the CPLP® exam.
Participants will use the ASTD Learning System (included with your registration fee) throughout the course, covering the profession's nine areas of expertise. CPLP Prep Online's primary purpose is to prepare an individual for the CPLP® certification during an upcoming exam window.
This is a self-directed course with online mentors. ASTD uses the most effective and highly qualified mentors for this education program. Each online mentor is a CPLP® and understands what is necessary to prepare for your CPLP exam and work product. Their roles are different from a traditional instructor. They will serve as guides to help keep you on track and on target. They will have regular "virtual" office hours each week during your ten-week course period, and will be available to answer questions as well as monitor the participant discussion board.
