The Career/Employment Coach Certificate (CECC) is a joint program with the Winnipeg Transition Centre’s Active Learning Works and the University of Winnipeg PACE and Humber College in Toronto.

The Program is comprised of four 2-day modules.  This includes Resume Development, Job Search, Career Planning, and Interview Skills Coach workshops.  These sessions can be delivered online as well as in person.

To acquire a Certificate for each module, a Final Assignment is required to be submitted within 90 days of the workshops and pass the evaluation process.  Once all 4 Final Assignments are successfully completed, the Final Certificate is automatically awarded.

All the workshops are highly interactive with time devoted to practice coaching through role-play breakout sessions.  Participants walk away with an extensive toolkit of resources and techniques that can immediately be implemented in their workplace.  The following information provides an overview of 2 of the 4 modules scheduled in November and December 2023:
