Consultants come in all different styles. To me the prime consideration is the understanding of learning as a tool to enhance productivity. Unless we are in an academic environment, investments in training and learning should always have a return, a benefit to the organization.

As for training available to prepare to be a learning consultant, the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) has a Certification program. Preparation for testing to become a Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) is available through the association.
