CCDP Education and Training

Since the launch of the CCDP designation in 2005 the CDAA has maintained a list of “pre-approved” education / training programs and courses from accredited post-secondary institutions in Alberta. While other education / training programs and courses were considered on a case by case basis the “pre-approved” list remained the primary eligibility standard for the CCDP designation.

Given the changing landscape of career development education / training in Canada, and specifically in Alberta, it has become increasingly challenging to maintain a list of “pre-approved” education / training programs and courses from accredited post-secondary institutions in Alberta. Due to these changes the CDAA will no longer maintain a list of “pre-approved” education / training programs and courses but will, through the Canadian Council for Career Development (3CD) Certification Working Group, provide Career Development Practitioners interested in Career Development Practitioner education and training, with an Inventory of Career Development Education / Training Programs and Courses available across Canada.

Eligibility Standards for Career Development Practitioner (CDP) Education / Training Programs and Courses, whether delivered by an accredited post-secondary institution or a private training provider, have been established by the CDAA and will assist those interested in applying for the Certified Career Development Professional (CCDP) designation with guidance regarding the selection of education / training programs and courses.

Questions regarding the Eligibility Standards for Career Development Practitioner (CDP) Education / Training Programs and Courses can be directed to the CDAA Registrar, Lise Stransky, at registrar@careerdevelopment.ab.ca.
