So many people have asked questions about our Professional Development Seminars that we've created this handy outline of the most frequently asked questions and their answers. Please take a minute to read this information and, if you still have any questions, please contact us.
Some of the seminars require additional materials for which there is a minimal fee which will be clearly indicated with the seminar information. Additional copies of the material are available upon request for a minimal fee.
For all workshops, no specific knowledge of the topic is required. However, some seminars require a basic understanding of career development theories in order to maximize the learning experience. As such, these seminars may be best suited for participants with at least some experience in career counseling.
The price for 2 hour webinar style CCC Professional Development Seminars is $50 for members and $75 for non-members. For 4 hour seminars, the cost is $100 for members and $150 for non-members. Facilitators may also charge a materials fee of approximately $10, which would be in addition to the seminar rate.
