Additional Areas of Expertise for the Work Product Submission?

This just in...

ASTD CI has enlisted the help of the Workforce Education & Development department of the Pennsylvania State University to conduct interviews with high performing professionals in the areas of managing the learning function or facilitating organizational change.

I'm speculating this means two new AOEs will soon be added to the Work Product submission phase of the CPLP certification program.

How soon is soon? That is currently unknown, but I think it's a good bet that the new AOEs will not be ready in time for folks who are submitting work product in October.

Perhaps they will be ready for candidates submitting work product closer to the end of the year.

What does this mean for CPLP candidates and prospective candidates?

It means don't try fitting a square peg in a round hole -- wait.

If your expertise is more in managing the learning function or facilitating organizational change, and not so much in designing learning, delivering training, or measuring & evaluating (the current areas you can submit for) -- then consider holding off on entering the program until an AOE more relevant to the work you do becomes available (as it seems these will be the next two to go, and sooner rather than later).

Another CPLP Job Posting!
