    I recently registered for Training Industry's Certified Professional in Training Management (CPTM) program. This program is focused on the training manager role, with an emphasis on building training programs that align with business needs. The program has three steps: approximately 50 hours of online content, a four-day live practicum, and an exam, together estimated to take about 2-3 months to complete.

    As a current Training Manager, I had my eye on this for a bit. My formal educational background is in teaching secondary education and now I've been in the corporate environment for nearly nine years. With recent changes to my team structure increasing our reach within the organization, I wanted to build on my Bachelor's in Secondary Education, Masters in Management and experience in training software to customers, taking the next step in managing a training department at the organizational level. And as a passionate L&D professional, I'm always eager to learn more and build my portfolio.

    The relaxed social obligation calendar, thanks to a global pandemic, created an opportune time to place energy in personal and professional development. Having reviewed a few programs, I settled on the CPTM for the specificity on training management, as well as the open eligibility requirements. I'm about half way into the online content and I'm really enjoying it. It's placing definition and reasoning behind things I already felt and filling the gaps on what I didn't previously understand or recognize.

    Mary-Frances Winters, founder of the Winters Group, a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) consultancy spoke to Berrett-Koehler virtually about recent events in the racial justice movement. Her latest book, Black Fatigue, which will come out in the fall from B-K, focuses on the exhaustion that many minorities experience being asked to educate well intentioned whites about their experience. She reflected on how her work has changed over time starting from an emphasis on diversity being a business imperative to it now being about social justice and the right thing to do for the survival of the entire human race.
