Both certifications are based on the Talent Development Capability Model.
ASSOCIATE PROFESSIONAL IN TALENT DEVELOPMENT (APTD)
The APTD is great for those in their early talent development careers and for those who moved into talent development I the middle of their careers. The certification proves you have the foundation skills to succeed and to provide quality outputs.
