About the Panel

The International Society for Performance Improvement established the Certified Performance Technologist (CPT) credential to help performance improvement professionals set themselves apart within their field. Those who have earned their certification have shared that documenting their work as part of the certification process helped them:

  • Gain confidence in sharing the value they bring to employers and/or clients
  • Obtain new clients
  • Secure a new job
  • Set a course for continued growth in their career.

Potomac Chapter members, who have attained the Certified Performance Technologist (CPT) credential, will offer insights into how the CPT has been a value-add to their careers.


At the end of the discussion, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  1. What is a Certified Performance Technologist (CPT)? Who becomes one and what does he/she do for work?
  2. What are the application requirements? What are suggestions for how to meet them?
  3. How does one get started?
  4. What is a CPT project? How does one tell if projects meet the requirements?
  5. What were the most difficult parts of the process for the panel members? What were the easiest or simplest? What were any surprises along the way?
  6. What will this cost? Is there any way this can be done for less? Is it worth it?
  7. Once certified, how does one stay certified?
  8. What benefits have been experienced as a result of achieving the certification?

Note: We usually meet on the second Tuesday of every month.
