Certification and Accreditation

ISPI has created certification and accreditation programs to prove proficiency, effectiveness and dedication to best practices in the industry.

Certified Performance Technologist (CPT) Certification

Established in 2002, the CPT certification was established to help practitioners distinguish themselves in the performance improvement industry. This proficiency-based certification involves practitioners documenting examples of their work based on a set of standards, criteria, and code of ethics. Applications are rigorously reviewed by peers who evaluate how the work submitted has produced results through a systematic, measurable process. Those who earn their CPT certification demonstrate their dedication to the field by keeping up with continuing education requirements, which is required to re-certify every three years. This certification is in demand by organizations hiring for specific expertise from individuals who have proven they know how to get results.  Learn More...


Accreditation

Founded in 1962, ISPI is the leading international association dedicated to improving productivity and performance in the workplace. ISPI serves as an independent third party accrediting agency that assesses education, performance improvement and training programs, courses, and services offered by for-profit and nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, corporations, departments, vendors/consultants, associations, military and government entities. Organizations document their adherence to a set of standards and undergo an interview and/or site visit by trained CPT-certified reviewers. It is the goal of ISPI's accreditation program to bring recognition to those organizations, departments programs, courses, and services that produce worthy, measurable results.  Learn More...
