"What a pleasure it is to be part of CPC’s Canada Career Month podcast. In the last two years since joining CPC, I have had the opportunity to earn my CRS designation, take training programs, and get involved in CPC’s Mastermind Group. I have experienced many opportunities and benefits from this organization, including three Awards of Excellence just this year."

"I joined CPC, committed to trying to mitigate the "impostor syndrome" through networking and education. I was starting from scratch when it came to connections within the profession. CPC has really helped me nurture those relationships and network within the career development industry itself.”

"When I signed up, I didn't have my official company name website. It was so exciting my very first client found me and contacted me through the directory. She sent me an email directly and asked if I would help her out. I'm really happy I found CPC. I think it's going to be a real game-changer for my company going forward."

"I started looking at membership benefits and it was amazing. I started participating on the Facebook Page. I started participating in the Teleseminars. I fell in love! The people in this community are amazing and generous, kind and motivating. I feel like I actually belong to something that is important."

"I haven't been a member that long but the group has been very welcoming. The members of CPC are really great sounding board. There is a wealth of knowledge. The members are very willing to share their expertise. Of all the groups that I'm involved in, CPC is the group that has helped me with my core business."

"CPC has such a diverse range of talents, skills, and expertise. At CPC, there's a collaboration over competition vibe. One of the really great things about being part of the community is realizing that there's a place for everybody. The Facebook group is like our 'water cooler' in private practice. It's virtual but it's there and I really appreciate that."

"The course I took was designed very well. I strengthened my expertise in employment services. I also learned things that I have never done before, in terms of employment interview strategies. I earned the designation that I really need and took my first step in career coaching. There are other designations, so I can put my hands-on experience into something systemic."
|Barbara WilsonThrive Career Consulting
"What I really like about CPC is that it offers not just the core mandatory courses required for certification but a robust curriculum. I've actually completed five CPC courses. I spent 15 years of my career in the learning and development profession, leading a team of e-learning designers and developers so I can say with confidence that all of CPC courses are really well designed. They're engaging and most importantly they follow adult learning principles."
