Facilitating Career Development (FCD)

Our mission is to advance the career, college, and workplace readiness of youth and adults across education, workplace, family, and community settings.

FCD Classes

The University of Wisconsin–Madisonhas led the movement to provide training and professional development to those who work in career services. Primarily, our talents lie in providing instruction for the Global Certified Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) certification and the CertifiedCareer Services Provider (CCSP) certification.
