This interactive webinar addresses how to apply for the Certified Performance Technologist (CPT) designation. It is designed to support candidates who are unable to attend an in-person workshop or participate in an in-house program sponsored by an employer, chapter, or university. The program is comprised of three 65 minute segments with a 10 minute break in between each.
During the first 15 minutes, you will "meet" the other participants and learn how the CPT differs from more traditional certifications, why employers value it, and how it can benefit you. Next, we'll delve into...
- Part One introduces you to the requirements and first four Standards. You will learn how to avoid the common mistakes applicants make and the logic behind the standards (65 minutes).
- Part Two continues with an explanation of the last six Standards, and what you must do to satisfy them (65 minutes).
- Part Three explains how the certification was developed and is managed. You will have an opportunity to ask questions about the projects you are considering to submit in your application (65 minutes).
Pre-work: One week prior to the program, you will receive electronic copies of four sample applications that demonstrate how the Standards were applied to improving performance of an organization, a department, a program, and to the management of projects. You will also receive an electronic copy of the application you can complete when you are ready to submit your work.
You will be able to download the Standards, a self-assessment, CPT Handbook, and the slide deck prior to, during, and after the program. In addition, since the program is recorded, you will have access to the presentation for reference whenever necessary.
