ATD Competency Model

The ATD Competency Model™

The Talent Development Profession Redefined to Create a Competitive Advantage

ATD is proud to launch the new ATD Competency Model. The talent development (TD) profession has undergone significant transformation in the last decade. The ATD Competency Model redefines the skills and knowledge required for trainers to be successful now and in the future. It captures changes driven by digital, mobile, and social technology; demographic shifts; globalization; and economic forces.

The ATD Competency Model:

  • defines the latest competencies needed for success across the entire TD industry.
  • provides a professional development roadmap for TD leaders and practitioners.
  • identifies TD skills gaps and ways to close them that align with individual and organizational goals.

The Model emphasizes: (1) foundational competencies, or those that are important to everyone in the field, and (2) specific areas of expertise (AOEs), which are the specialized knowledge and actions required by specific roles.
