"NCDA Credentialing"
Summer 2018

Career Developments Summer 2018 Cover

NCDA believes the complexity in our field needs to be recognized by a variety of high quality credentials. As a result NCDA has determined that setting up its own credentialing body will allow NCDA’s standards and ethics to be upheld most effectively. These credentials are competency-based, as competency based credentials provide a higher level of consumer confidence. Career professionals holding an NCDA credential will have met rigorous standards set by NCDA. This issue will provide information on a variety of topics surrounding NCDA credentialing including NCDA Credentialing Committee, credentials offered, training programs/CEs, how the new credentials differ from past offerings, application questions, and other important resources.
