Preconference Learning

Get a jumpstart on learning.
Preconference learning opportunities offer a deep dive into new skills and knowledge before the conference officially kicks off. These highly interactive sessions will help you build expertise and help you develop the skills that you can immediately put to work in your organization. This is an excellent opportunity to engage in shared learning and networking with your peers in an intimate setting. Space is limited, so be sure to register early.

Choose the best preconference learning experience for you:

  • Education Programs are two- three- and four-day courses designed to provide you with the latest instructional strategies that promote application and organizational impact. Learners earn a certificate of completion at the end.
  • Certification Preparation is a two-day intensive prep experience designed to help you take some of the guess-work out of preparing for the Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) and the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) certification. You will receive free access to the ATD Learning System, as well as access to the Learner Community for ongoing peer support.
  • Workshops are one-day deep dives on trending topics in talent development and provide a unique opportunity to learn hands-on.

These programs are not included in the full conference registration and you must register separately. To purchase a preconference program and a conference registration, you will need to add both to your shopping cart during the registration checkout process. If you have already registered for ATD 2020 and would like to add a preconference program, please contact our professional development specialists by calling: 855-404-2783.
