Facilitating Career Development Certification for Practitioners
What is a Facilitating Career Development?
A Facilitating Career Development person has completed the Facilitating Career Development Training program and works in any career development setting, or who incorporates career development information or skills in their work with students, adults, clients, employees, or the public. A Facilitating Career Development professional has received in-depth training in the areas of career development in the form of up to 120+ class/instructional hours, provided by a nationally trained and qualified instructor.
This title designates individuals working in a variety of career development settings. A Facilitating Career Development professional may serve as a career group facilitator, job search trainer, career resource center coordinator, career coach, career development case manager, intake interviewer, occupational and labor market information resource person, human resource career development coordinator, employment/placement specialist, or workforce development staff person.
The counseling profession has made great progress in defining professional counseling and career counseling. However, several professional groups recognized that many individuals who are currently providing career assistance are not professional counselors. The Facilitating Career Development training program was developed to provide standards, training specifications, and GFCD credentialing for these career providers. The goal was to define and differentiate two levels of career practice.
Why Should I Consider Facilitating Career Development Training?
Facilitating Career Development training can enhance the skills and knowledge of individuals who work in any type of career development setting.
