Nazeer Completes Workforce Professional Development Program

Naseeruddin Nazeer completed the Workforce Professional Development Program (WPDP), offered by the International Association of Workforce Professionals.

The WPDP is a series of study guides and examinations designed to measure and recognize an individual’s knowledge of workforce development programs. Created in 1988, WPDP gives workforce professionals an opportunity to enhance knowledge and career growth. Several State Workforce Development Agency training programs have incorporated WPDP and recognize it as a useful tool.

Nazeer is employed by the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) and prior to IDES, he was employed by a database administrator and analyst at a casino company and MasterCard.

Nazeer attained B.S. in Management Information Systems from Western Illinois University and currently resides in the Chicago area.

Nazeer said, “I enjoyed  taking the WPDP program and learned a lot about the history of Unemployment Insurance, and also reinforced many basic concepts that are vital to my job.” “I also appreciated the self-paced program which helped me to complete the program while working.”
