Family Development Credential Featured

The Family Development Credential (FDC) Program

Tioga Opportunities, Inc. and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tioga County is again offering the Family Development Credential (FDC) program beginning January 2019 for frontline family workers. The core goal of the program is for families to attain a healthy self-reliance.

This nationally recognized and respected professional development program provides training and opportunities to practice skills for strength-based family support. Family development workers help individuals and families of all ages, life-styles, and cultures learn to set and work toward their own goals.

This training increases the effectiveness of workers helping families. To earn the FDC, a participant must:
• Complete 90 hours of interactive classroom instruction based on the Empowerment Skills for Family Workers curriculum
• Prepare a skills portfolio with support of a portfolio advisor, and
• Pass a state credentialing exam.

The course is highly interactive and applicable to our professional and personal lives.  The fee is $900 and includes 90-hours of training, the course materials, and exam fee.  The credential is also applicable for college credit and/or contact hours.  It also can be used to document training hours for both new NYSPEP Parenting Educator Credential applicants and for renewals.

The New York State Department of State selected Cornell University to develop the FDC curriculum and administer the program in 1996. Today, the University of Connecticut administers the National FDC.

Classes start January 10, 2019 at Tioga Opportunities, Inc., Owego, NY

Space is limited; reservations must be made by December 31.
