I’ve been providing training and education for career development professionals since 1991. I currently teach the Career Development Practitioner program at Conestoga College and have been designing and delivering courses in this program since its inception in 1995. This graduate certificate program, the first to be offered on the Internet in the field of career development, is designed for:
- Career counsellors
- Employment counsellors
- Career information practitioners
- Career management professionals
Conestoga’s Career Development Practitioner program is applicable to both independent career counsellors as well as those seeking more proactive management roles and choices in their current professional setting. It has been taken by over 500 career development professionals across Canada, and is delivered entirely online through interactive and collaborative webinars.
Here are few of the comments I’ve received about my courses:
“It was a pleasure to have studied under Rob’s tutelage! He has a passion for career development and was able to pass it on to his students. I have benefited tremendously from his expertise and humour. Thanks Rob!”

“I had the pleasure of having Rob a teacher in few courses I’ve completed while pursuing the Career Development Practitioner graduate studies. I have found his interaction and approach extremely professional and knowledgeable; his flexibility and capacity of combining new ideas brought new meanings to the career exploration area. Rob always showed interest and support and he endorses the ones he works with. He loves his job and he does it with passion and dedication and I would strongly recommend his expertise, Thanks, Rob!”
