  • Applicants must meet minimum qualifications as indicated on NCDA website.
  • Instructors must successfully complete an Instructor Certification Workshop given by a certified NCDA Master Trainer to become instructor certified.
  • Certification is provided through NCDA upon successful completion of the training.
  • To maintain your NCDA Career Development Facilitator instructor certification you must either join the NCDA Instructor Registry, or maintain a GCDF Certification through CCE, or be on an equivalent registry requiring a master’s degree in counseling with study in career development.
