To become a CPLP, candidates must:
  • Have at least five (5) years of industry related experience
  • Pass a knowledge exam consisting of 150 multiple-choice questions

The ATD Smoky Mountain Chapter is available to host study groups for chapter members, using the ATD CPLP Study Group Leaders Guide and the ATD Learning System. Web conferencing technology allows candidates from the local chapter, as well as more distant chapters, to participate.
