Who The FCD Training Course Is For

If you are a career practitioner interested in becoming a trained, certified career professional—and you live in the Maine/New England area—this class is for you.

You’ll develop the skills to meet GCDF and CCSP credentialing requirements for jobs in many different sectors. And you’ll be more attractive to prospective employers because they know you have met national standards and have developed a clearly defined scope of practice.


The 120-hour class meets over 5 months to prepare you for success in the growing field of career development. This course combines face-to-face training with e-learning to give you the skills you need to work in any type of career development setting.

You’ll spend five (5) days interacting with your instructors and peers in a live classroom setting (currently live Zoom sessions). The remainder of the class is a combination of engaging online learning, discussions, and fieldwork.
