What is a Career Development Professional?

The Certified Career Development Professional (CCDP) is a designation that has the individual commit to a standard of professionalism. We follow the Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Practitioners and follow professional code of ethics. We stay current in our practice through participating in professional educational unit credits gathered annually.

Why Become a Certified Career Development Professional?

  • Obtain official recognition of your competency in the career development field
  • Stand out professionally and increase the marketability of your qualifications
  • Demonstrate your commitment to career development work
  • Contribute to public awareness of career development as a defined field of practice
  • Participate in a potential group insurance plan that is available only to associations that have an established professional designation program.

You can be a member of the CDAA and choose not to be CCDP certified.The process to become certified is strictly voluntary.

There are two pathways to a CCDP. The first pathway is to complete a post-secondary training program in career development and the second is to meet in an experience criteria.
