Career Development Network -

The World's Leader in Career Coach Training & Certification

 

Since our founding in 1979, the Career Development Network has provided training seminars and workshops for career development professionals throughout the world. Much of the training has been offered through university continuing education programs. Some seminars are conducted in business organizations. Others are organized by government agencies.

Since 1994, the Network has trained and certified over 6,000 Job & Career Transition Coaches and Job & Career Development Coaches.

THE NETWORK BECOMES THE WORLD LEADER IN TRAINING CAREER COACHES

Starting in 1990, we evolved from teaching traditional Career "Counseling" skills to teaching the much more active and prescriptive Career "Coaching" techniques. These training and certification programs were attended by career counselors and coaches who were working with adults in job or career transition.

  • In 1990 we introduced the Job & Career Transition Coach certification in North America
  • 1991 expanded to Australia
  • 1992 expaned to New Zealand
  • 1994 expanded to include Holland
  • 1995 expanded to include Sweden

 

THE NETWORK EXPANDS THE CAREER COACH TRAINING TO AFRICA AND ASIA

In 2000 we expanded our coach certification program to include human resource professionals who were working with employees desiring to develop their careers within their current organization. This expansion resulted in the designation of a new certification: Job & Career Development Coach. Since 2000, all graduates of our Coach Certification courses have received both Transition and Development credentials.

  • In 2009 we introduced the Job & Career Development Coach certification program in Egypt
  • 2010 expanded to China
  • 2012 expanded to Korea

 

THE NEWORK EXTENDS CAREER COACH TRAINING TO SOUTH AMERICA AND SUB-SAHARA AFRICA

Plans are currently underway to establish the Job & Career Development Coach training and certification programs in South Africa and Brazil.

 

OTHER NETWORK CAREER TRAINING PROGRAMS

In 2001, the Network established a one-day Marketing & Business Development seminar for career practitioners in private practice. Since 2007, the Network has been offering the 120-hour Career Development Facilitator (CDF) training that qualifies graduates to become Global Career Development Facilitators (GCDF) and the three-day Career Development Facilitator Instructor (CDFI) training.
