Empowering professionals across the state of Arizona to develop workplace Talent            




Value of Certification

Have you considered elevating your talents and capabilities by becoming a Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) or an Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD)?

Based on the Association for Talent Development's Talent Development Capability Model™, CPTD and APTD are esteemed credentials 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 skills
    • Differentiate you in a competitive market
    • Broaden your career opportunities
    • Join an elite professional community

Study Group

Having a support system during your preparation can be extremely beneficial for your success. The ATD Valley of the Sun Chapter partners with several other chapters to offer a virtual study group to support both the CPTD and the APTD.
  • The study group is free to members of the ATD VOS chapter.
  • For non-chapter individuals, it is $100 for CPTD and $50 for APTD candidates.
