CDPC Online Community
- Is there a mobile app for the Community?
No, we don’t need one! Your community site is made with responsive design; it works on all devices throught a browser. Supporting mobile apps means supporting multiple code bases for development. If you want the site accessable like an app on your mobile device, simply add it as a shortcut on your iPhone or Android home screen.
- How long is the course?
The course is 30 hours, with approximately 18 hours of live, facilitated instruction (2 days in-person and three 2-hour online sessions on Zoom/Teams) and 12 hours of self-directed learning delivered over 4 weeks.Is the course online or in-person?
The course is delivered in a hybrid format (i.e., mixed modality). There are 2-days (12 hours) of in-person training in a specific location, supported by three 2-hour sessions (6 hours) using Zoom or MS Teams and 12 hours of independent work (online).How is the course connected to certification?
This course targets key knowledge and competence from the new Career Development Professional Competency Framework. Provincial certification requirements vary, so it will be important to check directly with your certification administrator. Click here for more information on provincial certification: ccdp-pcdc.ca/en/certification. Currently, the proposed national certification process will be based on a competency recognition of prior learning (RPL) model, so this training will be excellent preparation for success.
We are also confident that successful completion of this course will help build the knowledge and competence relevant to other industry certifications. Each CDP is encouraged to do that research separately, based on other certifications of interest.What happens if I apply for the training but don’t get accepted?

Career Development Professional Centre
Help us cultivate a community we all enjoy by reviewing and following the Code of Conduct.
Thank you for being a part of the online CDPC social learning community. To ensure that all members have the best possible experience, we have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to. This code of conduct applies equally to every person in the community and is intended to foster an online space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming to all.
We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to create and facilitate a community that promotes excellence and innovation in career and workforce development. Please extend respect to all members; we all come from different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and there is no such thing as a stupid question.
We won’t all agree all the time, but when we disagree don’t let those disagreements turn into personal attacks. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened will not be a productive one. Instead, when having discussions in the online community, create productive conversations around the content being presented, not the person behind the content. Any post that is determined to be “hate speech” towards any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.
Hate Speech could include and is not limited to:
- Violent threats or language directed against another person
- Discriminatory jokes, language, or materials
- Defamatory or abusive language or materials
- Profane or illegal materials
- Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior
A good rule of thumb is to never post anything that you wouldn’t be comfortable with the world seeing or that you wouldn’t want anyone knowing came from you. We ask that you keep in mind the focus of this community, which is building excellence and innovation in career and workforce development for all individuals.
Be considerate of the purpose of the community
This community will be focused on building excellence and discussing innovation in the career and workforce development field. The goal of this community is to communicate goals, challenges, constructive feedback, and questions in relation to career and workforce development. The community should be a place for continued learning and development as well as a place to discuss the future of our field (solicitation without written consent by the Project or Advisory team, is strictly prohibited). Any post that is determined to be soliciting any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.
Post your discussions or documents in the most appropriate group or topic
Make reasonable efforts to ensure that posts and materials are allocated to the appropriate group or topic. This will prevent cluttering the community and make it easier for everyone to find the information that they are seeking. Individuals who do this repeatedly will be contacted by one of the group admins and asked to follow these guidelines.
