In Nova Scotia, the use of a recognition of prior learning (RPL) model for Certified Career Development Practitioner (CCDP) certification was driven by the field – by practitioners whose significant knowledge and skills were acquired through experience. Today, certification is the cornerstone of the Nova Scotia Career Development Association and an integral component of practice. Hear our story and sample the RPL approach.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the "fit" between RPL and CCDP certification
  • Be familiar with the components of NSCDA’s CCDP certification process
  • Recognize the potential for using RPL practices with clients
