GRADD Employees Receive National Workforce Certification

gradd1 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (10/22/13) -Four GRADD workforce development staff members were recently recognized with a prestigious national certification.

Rose Bowlds, Michelle Drake, Bonna Goode and Jamie Kays have been awarded the Certified Workforce Development Professional (CWDP) credential by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals.

Drake serves as GRADD’s business services manager; and Bowlds, Goode and Kays are career counselors at Kentucky Career Center–Green River in downtown Owensboro. Workforce Development Professionals facilitate the process by which individuals identify, prepare for, obtain and maintain employment and self-sufficiency; and assist businesses with accessing and retaining a quality workforce.

They may work directly with the customer or may work as support personnel for and with staff who do work directly with the customer. The CWDP recognizes the training, experience and expertise of professionals in the field in 10 areas of competency:

•History and Structure of Workforce Development System
•Career Development Process
•Labor Market Information
•Diversity
•Customer Service
•Program Management
•Communication
•Technology
•Collaboration and Problem Solving
•Business and Employer Knowledge

“These individuals exemplify the degree of professionalism and commitment to excellence that America needs if it is to continue to enjoy a world-class workforce,” Bridget Brown, NAWDP executive director, said.

The CWDP program is administered and endorsed by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals. NAWDP is a national association for individual practitioners in the workforce development profession, with over 4,000 members. Its mission is to be the national voice for the profession and to meet the individual professional development needs of its membership.
