Many of us felt at least somewhat inadequate and questioned our professional skills and acumen during the credentialing process.
Think of it as a rite of passage and know that you're not alone; many a CPLP candidate fingernail is--at this very moment--still being obsessively chewed while the other hand tears out chunks of hair.
Hang in there, hang in there, hang in there!
Some counsel for those who have sent their packages off into the stratosphere:
* Breathe deeply. Give it about a week for that sensation of relief (for getting it done and out the door) mixed with that sick-to-your-stomach feeling (just knowing that you forgot something or could have done something better) to subside.
Now go out and celebrate!
You've worked hard these many months to get to this very point - treat yourself!
Besides, regardless of when you submitted your Work Product, it won't be scored for several weeks. So you may as well breathe and think positive thoughts (that's about all you *can* do, right?).
The rest of life will inevitably invade and you'll soon stop obsessing over your certification results.
When will you receive notification of your results?
Results for this cohort are typically sent in late April.
My guesstimate? I'm guessing notifications will go out via email the week of April 23, 2012.
So, really, relax. Celebrate the moment.
Get ready to move on to the next thing... (recertification credits!)
I look forward to welcoming you to the Certified Professional in Learning & Performance (CPLP) community!
