What Services Do CDF Instructors Offer?


CDF Instructors provide a valuable service helping others who work in career development in the following ways:

* to gain skills and knowledge that can be applied immediately on the job,

* to increase professional opportunities,

* to obtain eligibility for global certification,

* to network with regional career development practitioners,

* to learn in a contextual learning environment.


The CDF Instructor training (CDFI) provides curriculum, networking, and guidance that will prepare you to teach the CDF program to others, so that they may acquire the knowledge and skills to qualify for international certification as a Global Career Development Facilitator through The Center for Credentialing and Education, Inc (CCE). 


CDF Instructors have an extensive background in all of the CDF competencies including career development, career assessment, occupational information, job-hunting, retention and career counseling, and have worked, taught, or trained adults in settings such as K - 12 education, community college, university, one-stop career center, career service agency or business and industry. Individuals who complete the instructor training qualify for the CDF Instructor Registry, maintained by the National Career Development Association (NCDA).


CDF instructors are developing training programs in schools, colleges, community colleges, businesses, and state agencies. The Instructor training agenda follows the training developed by the Career Development Training Institute (CDTI) and approved by NCDA. Course content surveys the components of the curriculum. Instructors learn to teach the curriculum by practice teaching it and providing feedback to others.
