1400 Spring Street, Suite 260, Silver Spring, Maryland USA 20910

The Center for International Credentials, LLC (Center), in collaboration with and endorsed by the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), offers this evidence-based certification for developers of learning solutions, the Certified Developer of Training (CDT). The CDT is also administered and awarded by the
International Certifications Centre in Africa and the Middle East.
Recipients are awarded the mark (CDT) and a digital badge unique to the learning solution used to demonstrate the standards, such as Instructor-led Training, Synchronous and Asynchronous eLearning, Serious Games, Self-study, and more. Collectively, the mark and badge are designed to promote certificants' expertise. Certificants may or may not have been involved in the need's assessment and front-end analysis, design, delivery, or post-course evaluation; however, they have demonstrated deep skills in developing learning solutions. The certification is designed to support the career growth of training professionals who may or may not have advanced degrees in instructional design, learning technology, or adult learning. Many certificants have significant experience in fields other than instructional design, and the certification validates these individuals'
professional development and expertise. The certification recognizes and validates applicants' past performance to prospective employers and the public. The certification attests that applicants' work met the international, theory-free, and model-free standards of instructional design and development.
