Chapter CPLP Study Groups

Twice a year, the Metro DC chapter hosts a study group prior to CPLP test windows. A study group can assist with your preparation by providing a structured group learning program and connections to other professionals who are actively preparing for the exam. Anyone wishing to prepare for the exam and participate in a study group are highly encouraged to purchase the ATD Learning System to use throughout the duration of the study group; the chapter does not provide access to the Learning System.

If you are a Chapter member and would like to join or volunteer to lead a study group, please contact our Director of Professional Development.

Program Goals

By the end of the CPLP study program, you will:

  • Review the fundamental information identified by the CPLP competency model needed to sit for the CPLP Knowledge Exam.
  • Identify gaps in knowledge and develop a personalized study plan to prepare for the CPLP Knowledge Exam.
  • Create an action plan for your Skills Application Exam preparation.
Participant Requirements
In order to ensure your success in this study group you should be prepared to:

  • Own your own copy of the ATD Learning System. The Learning System can be purchased here: https://www.td.org/Publications/Books/ASTD-Learning-System.
  • Be a member of the Metro DC Chapter of ATD.
  • Actively contribute to this group by delivering short, informal presentations related to a self-selected AOE. Also be ready to provide a brief orientation of your AOE one week in advance and lead a brief review session of your AOE one week after the presentation.
  • Participate in all virtual study sessions after the kick off. Although this program is part of a guided study, you will ultimately guarantee your success by being a strong self-directed learner.
