About CLDP®

Internationally-Accredited Certification

Learning and development is a systematic process to enhance an employee’s skills, knowledge, and competency, resulting in better performance in a work setting. Specifically, learning is concerned with the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Development is the broadening and deepening of knowledge in line with one’s development goals.

Performance is one of the intended outcomes of L&D alongside employee satisfaction, future-proofing an organization, enhancing the employee experience, and increasing retention. Typically, L&D is categorized as part of a company’s overall talent management strategy, where learning is used as a means to acquire, nurture, maximize, and retain talent.

There is a remarkable relationship between effective training and guidance provided by line managers, supervisors, and trainers and the levels of employee satisfaction, commitment, and motivation. CLDP®-certified L&D Managers are expected to realize how to recognize the need for structured planning and preparation for an engaging and productive workforce.

Organizations face intense challenges to get obtaining leadership buy-in, measuring training effectiveness, and demonstrating adequacy through preparing measurements on training. CLDP®-certified L&D Managers are equipped with extensive experience combined with advanced learning and a network of professionals sharing effective best practices to address these challenges.
