Based on the 12 competency areas outlined in the National Career Development Association (NCDA) Career Development Facilitator curriculum, the Virginia Career Coach Certification (VCCC) program provides coaches at Virginia’s community colleges with the frameworks and tools needed for effective career coaching. The program consists of 10 hours of face-to-face training, split into two 5-hour parts, and 30 hours of online modules. Hours earned through VCCC count toward the requirements of the Career Development Facilitator (CDF) course and the Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) certification offered by VCCS.

VCCC requires 40 hours of training that is delivered in a combination of face-to-face sessions and online modules. To complete VCCC, participants must sign up for one of the following cohorts and complete the required 10 hours of face-to-face training in addition to the 30-hour online modules.
