Workshops are Customized for each Location

The JCTC/JCDC certifications are offered in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia.

Each workshop is led by a trained facilitator who understands the local culture and its history.

The local facilitator customizes the segment on the changing nature of the "world of work," at the beginning of each JCTC/JCDC workshop and again at the conclusion when presenting the section on resumes, interviewing and salary negotiation.

 

One Workshop - Two Certification Options

Individuals who complete the Career Coach Workshop can now receive both of the following credentials:

DEVELOPMENT COACH This credential is preferred by career practitioners who work internally in organizations and coach employee advancement within that organization.

TRANSITION COACH This credential is preferred by career practitioners and case managers who train and coach job seekers and those seeking a career change.

Continuing Education Hours
