This course is 120++ hours of face-to-face classes and e-learning.  The curriculum follows the official National Career Development Association materials and competencies.
 
We generally meet in 4 face-to-face sessions with the remainder of the requirements implemented through the DVD and various assignments and activities that are spread out over our time together.
