Continuing Development (CEU)

Continuing Education develops your skills, keeps you current in your field, and plays a key role in assuring the quality of your services.

A Certified Career Services Provider (CCSP) is required to obtain 30 hours of Continuing Education Units (i.e. 30 CEUs) during each 3-year period of validity for the credential. All CEUs must relate to the 12 Career Development Competencies.

CCSPs should record all their CEUs in the Continuing Education Log downloadable from the NCDA Credential Holder.

For details of the process of credential renewal, please refer to p.7 of the Continuing Education Manual. There will also be a short briefing on credential application and renewal for participants before the end of each FCD programme.

Criteria for CEUs and Credential Renewal

For criteria of CEUs and other related information, you are free to access the Continuing Education Manual via the NCDA link.
