Program Details

The University of West Florida offers a Certificate in Human Performance Technology (HPT). This certificate develops student’s skills in identifying and solving performance problems. The HPT certificate program aligns to performance standards and competencies developed by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) and the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI).

Students should be able to complete HPT Certificate Requirements on their own timeframe, and according to their schedule. The certificate may be completed in as little as two semesters, is completed after 12 credits, and is available fully online. The web-based course material allows students to interact with their instructor and other students, and access exams online through the eLearning system at times convenient for them.

The classes that students must complete include the following four online classes: Human Performance Improvement, HPT Interventions, Implementing HPT Interventions, and Evaluation HPT Interventions.

Human Performance Technology is implemented in many types of organizations, including commercial enterprises, governmental agencies, and the military. The trend towards HPT has occurred as organizations increasingly value development of human capital as a strategic necessity.
