Registration for the second edition of Qatar Career Fair’s (QCF) Career Advisor Training Course (CATC) is now open. Launched in 2015, it is the first specialized program of its kind to be offered for career advisors in Qatar and the Gulf region, and this year it is set to take place from May 22 to 26 2016.
Certified by Kuder, a world leader in career planning services, the QCF course aims to equip participants with essential career guidance and planning skills, as well as the necessary tools to assist youth along their career journeys.
Offered in both Arabic and English, the course is open to the public and will be particularly useful to career advisors, academic and vocational counselors, human resources personnel, professors, instructors, scholars, and parents who play a key role in their children’s career decisions.
Additionally, throughout the duration of the course and six months thereafter, participants will have access to an online portal which will serve as a knowledge bank.
Dr. Spencer Niles, who currently directs Kuder’s research program and coordinates Kuder’s Research Review Board, will present the course along with Dr. Mohammad Abul-Ola.
Furthermore, those who register to take the Career Advisor Training Course will automatically be accepted into the Introductory Career Advisory Course, which will be hosted by QCF on Thursday, 28 April, at the Education City Clubhouse. The one-day intensive training session, which is accredited by the Association of Career Professionals International (ACP International), aims to equip counselors and career advisors with the necessary skills and advisory methods to enable them to provide effective academic and careerguidance.
