The application process for the fall term of free training through the Joint Career Development Program (JCDP) is now open!
Applications will be accepted until June 11 for courses and offerings taking place in the fall term (between August and December). You’ll find more details on the application process below.
Classroom courses on offer for this term include:
Find the full details, including delivery format, in the JCDP section of the website.
And don’t forget—CT-EAVs and CT-IAUs are now eligible for the JCDP under the new Comptrollership (CT) collective agreement.
This intake also includes the return of the highly regarded Interchange Program, where groups of CTs from the NCR are able to experience the realities of working in a region and regional CTs are able to be exposed to work in national HQs and central agencies. All travel and accommodation costs are covered by the JCDP, and selected members will take part in presentations, site visits, and job shadow opportunities over the course of a week.

Some key details on the application process are:
Based on feedback from members, and with even more courses and other offerings available this year thanks to the increase in funding for the JCDP in the new CT Collective Agreement, we’re revamping the way training is awarded this year, in that this application window is only for programming in the fall term (August – December). A second application window will open in the fall for courses taking place in the winter term (January – March).
We’ll also be piloting new ways to access training too, so you may hear about JCDP offerings through your department at some point during the coming months. We want to make as much training available to as many members as possible!
If you have any questions about the application process or the JCDP more broadly, please contact Joe Boughner, ACFO-ACAF’s Director of Professional Development (email@example.com).
