Obtain The L&D Industry’s Master Benchmark

  • Recognises capabilities, experiences and achievements,
  • Identifies individuals achieving great results through their learning initiatives,
  • Provides quality assurance to existing and potential clients.
  • CLPs are acknowledged for their extensive experience and ongoing professional development.  Achieving this benchmark will give you an industry-wide recognised standard of excellence to stand out with clients and employers.
