The ASTD along with ispi (International Society for Performance Improvement) has created a Certified Performance Technologist (ASTD, n.d.). The designation CPT will enable employers and clients to determine the qualifications and skills with a standardized measurement. The certification will indicated that the trainer has the necessary credentials and experience as well as provide trainers with the means to promote their skills and experience. For a limited time (October 2003), trainers with at least six years of training may apply to be grandfathered.
The certification is performance-based, not education-based. This means trainers who demonstrate proficiency in 10 Standards of Performance Technology and commit to the ispi Code of Ethics can be certified regardless of their educational background. Re-certification is required every three years.
Unless grandfathered, certification requires three years of experience in performance improvement and detailed descriptions of work performance from a supervisor, showing the 10 Standards of Performance Technology. It is not necessary to be a member of ISPI or ASTD in order to apply for certification, however members in the organizations receive a discounted application fee.
