Facilitating Career Development leads to the GCDF credential, and includes a blend of multiple Zoom webinar sessions with online activities, group work, independent studies, and other assignments. You should plan to attend all sessions. The 120-hour blended format program normally spans three to four months. Combining several Zoom sessions with web-based activities, independent study projects that directly benefit the student’s organization and customers, and other assignments, the course standardizes the knowledge and experience of individuals who are working in the career development and workforce development fields.
Course content is designed to be relevant and directly applicable for use on the job by the student. The richness of the program provides both the foundational learning that is so important to someone who is relatively new to the profession, as well as the depth that more experienced staff are seeking. The course addresses twelve (12) core competencies.
