for practitioners with more than four years of compensation and benefits experience, wishing to raise their level of impact, deliver greater value and demonstrate their level of competence as a rewards professional or manager.

Certified Total Rewards Professional™ (CTRP) Workshop

This workshop provides more experienced compensation and benefits managers and professionals an opportunity to achieve certification in a convenient three-day format, based on an assessment of managerial and program design competencies related to base pay structure design, managing the annual salary review, incentive pay design, advanced benefits and other professional competencies such as performance management and communication.


The focus is on ensuring emerging total rewards leaders are equipped with the essential knowledge, terminology, theory, methods, and attitudes for driving value through well-aligned rewards practices.

Class discussions are used to develop attitudes and insights in relation to linking pay to performance and value creation, through merit (base pay) and incentives (variable pay). Discussion of advanced benefits creates awareness of trends in cost-sharing, employee responsibility and flexible work arrangements. This is not intended as a skill-building course, but provides formal training in the essential managerial knowledge needed for compensation and benefits.

An assessment exam is included, requiring a 70% passing score for certification, along with evidence (resume or LinkedIn profile) of four years’ experience performing professional-level compensation and benefits duties within an organization.
