Unparalleled Professional Development

Need to hone your instructional design skills? Is your company launching into mobile learning? ATD members benefit from discounts on premier professional development, including workshops, certificate programs, and our Master Series assessment programs. No other organization offers the kind of professional development geared specifically to the needs of today’s talent development professionals.

Extensive Tools and Resources

Need a template to manage your training projects? Trying to figure out the cost of developing a curriculum? Maybe you’re looking for a quick job aid or deeper insights from an industry leader? Members have access to practical tools, templates, and more that they can immediately implement within their organization.

Cost Savings

The dollar value of both the Professional and Professional Plus membership levels are double and triple the yearly dues. What this means is that the access to content and discounts members enjoy are worth substantially more than the cost of membership.
