Based on the 12 competency areas outlined in the National Career Development Association (NCDA) Career Development Facilitator curriculum, the Career Development Facilitator (CDF) Certification program provides coaches at Virginia’s community colleges with the frameworks and tools needed for effective career coaching.

VCCS will offer two sessions of the CDF program. All coaches and staff who have completed the VCCC are eligible to enroll. The CDF program consists of 80 hours of additional training comprised of face-to-face and webinar sessions, research, and project-based learning. Participants who complete the VCCC and CDF programs earn the national Career Development Facilitator Certification and are eligible to apply for the Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF).

To complete the CDF program, participants must sign up for one of the following cohorts:
