     The Road to CPLP (ATD's Certified Professional in Learning and Performance certification)

    If you are like me, I was always interested in ATD’s Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) credential, but I put it off for years because I didn’t believe I could find enough “extra” time to study. Finally, I decided the benefits would far outweigh the sacrifice, so I applied to the program. I learned some great study tips along the way that helped me take a steady, balanced approach to success. If you are interested in the CPLP credential, join this conversation for tips that will accelerate your journey.

     NRC Sip and Draw

    Do you want to draw out your next presentation or meeting? Grab your markers and start creating, because you can! As trainers, presenters, and speakers, we all have information we want to communicate. We also want our audience to remember it. Although we all learn using a variety of learning styles, 65% of us are visual learners. During this workshop, we will take some text “content” and transform it into a visual presentation that will help your learning audience better remember what you say. It will be fun…and yes, you really can do this!

    The learner will be able to:

    • Produce legible lettering
    • Draw icons that represent concepts
    • Use techniques to help make the content visually memorable
    • Take text content and chunk it into topics and subtopics for charting purposes
