Students who have successfully completed the Ethics for CD Practitioners (CDPP 267) and Career Development Theories (CDPP 268) courses as part of the On the Road to Certification program may transfer these courses into the Career Development Practice certificate. Please note, that the CDPP 268 course is 20 hours, but the Theories, Models & Strategies (CDPP 750) course that is part of the certificate program is 30 hours.
