New Institute for Career Advising & Development Focuses on Moving Careers Forward

Kuder, Inc. (Kuder) is excited to announce the launch of a new division, the Institute for Career Advising & Development (ICAD).

As career advising & development continues to evolve, it is important for professionals to advance in their practice.

“We’re proud to establish ICAD and bring a convenient, innovative professional learning experience to career advisors and other professionals,” said Connor Harrington, Kuder CEO. “This division allows us to offer a wider variety of course options and formats and create vital learning opportunities for those not utilizing Kuder’s products.”

ICAD offers a range of professional development courses that cover career development theories, research, and practice. These courses provide effective strategies to enhance perspective, delivery, and expertise in career advising.

Individuals can now enroll in 11 distinct courses in multiple formats including individual micro-credentials on specific topics to credentialing programs encompassing a wider skillset. All ICAD courses are delivered asynchronously and self-paced. ICAD also partners with organizations to offer private, cohort programming for larger classes at the same time.

ICAD course participants are eligible to earn continuing education credits as well as digital badges, professional credentialing, and certification. For example, completion of ICAD’s Career Advisor Training: Advanced credential allows participants to apply for the Certified Career Advisor designation through the International Association of Career Advisors (IACA).
