Would you like to set yourself apart as a career services professional? Is there a topic that you are passionate about that you can share? Do you enjoy helping with the growth & development of your colleagues? If so, please consider this opportunity!

The Professional Development Committee is always looking for volunteers who would like to share their experience and expertise by recording webinars to provide CEUs for OCDA members. This is an easy process—it takes approximately an hour of your time to record, and the PD Committee will handle the setup process. Any topic that meets the guidelines for CEUs will be accepted; some possible topics include: self-care/self compassion in career counseling, working with clients who experience job loss, working with special populations (veterans, clients with autism, refugee/immigrant populations, LGBTQ clients, re-entry population), career assessments, ethical issues in career counseling, and motivational interviewing.


The Ohio Career Development Association (OCDA) is excited to announce the availability of two webinars created by a career development practitioner here in Ohio! The link to the pre-recorded webinars and corresponding quiz and program evaluation can be found below. By viewing these webinars and completing the quizzes, you can receive 1 free CEU each! The topics of our webinars are Developing Helping Skills Through GCDF Training by Andrea Tracy, MBA, GCDF, and Solution Focused Career Transition by Gail Michalski, LPC-S, CVE.

WEBINAR #1: Developing Helping Skills Through GCDF Training by Andrea Tracy, MBA, GCDF

If you would like to receive CEU’s (1 per webinar) you will need to take the on-line quiz corresponding to the webinar. You will need to receive at least an 80% on the post-test to receive the CEU’s and then will be awarded a CEU certificate. If you do not receive an 80% on the quiz, you will receive an e-mail from an OCDA board member requesting that you take the quiz again.

Please complete the WEBINAR QUIZ.

Also, we encourage anyone viewing the webinars to complete a on-line program evaluation. We value your feedback!
