CVA DACUM PLUS TRAINING & CERTIFICATION PROGRAMMES
The CVA DACUM Training and Certification Programme was inaugurated in 1993. It was originally developed by Larry Coffin, co-founder of Holland College (Prince Edward Island, Canada) and the leading DACUM expert in Canada and internationally until his retirement in 2006. As of today, more than 3000 persons have completed at least one of the programme’s modules.
The goal of this programme is to promote and disseminate best practices relative to the DACUM model.
DACUM Plus is a registered trademark. DACUM Plus was adopted by the CVA Board of Directors to emphasize that, beyond its initial intent, the DACUM model brings other valuable benefits, such as:
- Permanent cooperation and partnership between the world of education and training and the world of employment
- Making use of the DACUM analysis as a competence management tool for governments, employers, sectoral / and professional associations, and individual workers
- DACUM’s ability to adapt, respond and transform itself to remain relevant and valuable
DACUM Plus also aims at differentiating the CVA DACUM Training Programme, its philosophy, and related services from other DACUM training offerings.
