How can I really know the value and importance of the CCCE credential?
Read what your peers are saying about earning their CCCE Credential:
"The CCCE credential communicates an identity to my current and future students - an identity that I have the training and experience to provide them with an education that will prepare them for the field. Our program is one of only six CACREP-accredited Career Counseling Programs in the United States. This credential represents that I have a specialization in educating career counselors. As a current associate editor of Career Convergence (the Counselor Educators and Researchers Department), obtaining the credential made sense to me and something that I would like to communicate to others."

"The NCDA Certified Career Counselor Educator credential badge is the first such icon I have attached to my professional signature and documents. It holds great meaning for me. In many ways it is the professional recognition I have been waiting for since entering the academy 12 years ago. You see, I am a counselor educator who worked hard to earn this position because of career counseling I received. Starting as a client, then as a student in a career counseling course in my Master’s program, through every career course I have taken, taught, or consulted on, I have always been first and foremost a Career Counselor Educator who facilitates learning and meaning at the nexus of work, mental health, well-being, and personal identity. The badge in my signature line validates my choice and the efficacy of my profession!"
