The Workforce Professional Development Program (WPDP) recently achieved an important milestone with nearly 300 individuals currently working to achieve their WPDP masters designation through our new online system.
The Workforce Professional Development Program (WPDP) consists of 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.
The WPDP course consists of 4 modules: History of Workforce Development, Unemployment Insurance, Labor Market Information and Business and Job Seeker. Each module has 4 units (lessons) and each unit has a 25 question, multiple choice quiz. At the end of each module you will receive an electronic badge that you may display to recognize your achievement. You will also receive a personalized certificate upon completion of the full program.
Individuals completing the WPDP are qualified to apply for certification as a Certified Workforce Professional (CWP)
The reduced cost for IAWP offers members is only $160 which represents a savings of $100 over non-member pricing.
