Are you a Certified Career Development Professional who moved to British Columbia, but gained their designation in another province? 

Don't worry, your designation can be easily transferred and you can continue reaping the benefits of being confidently certified. 

Below are the steps that outline the process. 

What is  a CCDP designation transfer?

As a CCDP,  you may move to BC and wish to maintain your CCDP designation with the BC Career Development Association (BCCDA) rather than with the association that granted you the designation. 

Most of the provincial associations grant CCDP designation transfers. 

Please follow the transfer process below to be certified with us.


 The CCDP applying for a designation transfer must have a current CCDP designation with another provincial association and must become a "professional member" of the BCCDA for their transfer to be processed.


Application and Required Documentation:

 Please complete the "Online Designation Transfer Form"  first and submit the below-required documentation via email to with the subject "CCDP Designation Transfer Application " before the CCDP certification expiry date.

 Required documentation includes:

If documentation is missing and/or delayed, the application will not be reviewed for eligibility until the required information is provided. This may result in a decision delay by the BCCDA Certification Committee or the application not being accepted. The Certification Committee representative may contact the applicant if any additional information and/or clarification is required.

 The information collected is strictly confidential and will be used only to assess your membership status and request for designation transfer.
