IACAA Family and Community Development Specialist Training

It's back!  IACAA's Family and Community Development Specialist (FCD) announces its 2017 session beginning in June.  The FCD Specialist credential is a designed approach to assist Community Action staff to learn and apply effective, strength-based methods and approaches when working with low-income individuals and families.

The FCD Specialist student will be exposed to goal-setting, self-assessment, coaching, mentoring, and interviewing techniques, group work, motivation, self-care, in addition to poverty practices and diversity.  Homework and final exam completion are required to attain the certification, which is valid for five years.

Since 1995, over 2500 Community Action staff members have become certified FCD Specialists.  This training is presented in collaboration with the University of Illinois - Springfield and is a part of the Illinois Gateways to Opportunities Registry.
