Certified Learning Professional (CLP) is the master professional benchmark that sets highly skilled learning and development professionals apart in the industry.

CLP is recognition for both formal and informal education and successful application of your learning and development knowledge and skills, and ongoing commitment to professional development. The CLP program:

  • defines excellence in the learning and development profession and practical experience
  • advances your knowledge with continued professional development and networking
  • promotes the learning and development profession by recognising only qualified facilitators.

Each CLP application will be assessed on the individual’s merits. To qualify, CLP applicants typically have:

  • A minimum 10 years practical learning facilitation experience
  • Hold recognised educational qualifications and accreditations
  • Professional achievements in the learning and development field
  • Demonstrated their high standard learning facilitation skills

How Assessment Works

CLP certification is based on assessments of career achievements, practical experience and ongoing professional development.

To be successful the applicant must accumulate a minimum of 1,000 points across all four of the following areas.

1. Educational Qualifications

A degree or postgraduate qualification, together with a recognised training or facilitation qualification (e.g. Facilitation Passport). We recognise that people can enter the learning and development profession without these qualifications, so credit is given for completed qualifications in other disciplines and any learning and development studies undertaken.

In some circumstances, substantial experience can substitute for qualifications. However, in these cases applicants must demonstrate competence acquired through more than 10 years of specific practice.

2. Practical Experience

A minimum of 10 years learning and development experience is required.

3. Professional Achievements

Applicants are required to provide a resume of their professional achievements. Evidence of work done, results achieved and career highlights is sought. All claims must be independently substantiated.

4. Demonstration of Learning Facilitation Skills

Observation of the applicant facilitating a learning initiative.


CLPs are recognised for their formal and informal education, extensive experience, and ongoing commitment to professional development. The CLP benchmark:

  • Sets an industry standard of experience and competence in the learning and development profession
  • Encourages continual professional learning and development
  • Fosters a results orientated approach
  • Provides assurance of quality to prospective employers or clients


  • A valuable point of competitive difference
  • A broader client base to grow your income, experience and expertise
  • Recognition as a CLP on ILP website and Member directory
  • Opportunities to present at ILP events
  • Use of CLP post-nominal and logo
  • Preference for ILP national and state roles
  • International recognition of competence in learning facilitation
  • Ability to judge ILP Learning Impact Awards

All CLPs are required to maintain their professionalism by undertaking a minimum of 30 hours of professional development (e.g. professional development workshops, structured learning activities and informal activities such as research and readings), over a 12 month period.

This commitment, which is subject to random ILP auditing, fosters continued learning and development.

The CLP logbook will help keep a record of your professional development activities
