SHINN AWARDED CREDENTIAL

Bobbi Shinn, coordinator of the Hanscam Center One-Stop, was recently awarded the Certified Workforce Development Professional credential by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals.

Bobbi Shinn, the Hanscam Center One-Stop coordinator, exemplifies the degree of professionalism and commitment to excellence that America needs if it is to continue to enjoy a world-class workforce, said Ed McCann, association president.

Workforce development professionals facilitate the process by which individuals prepare for, obtain and maintain employment and self-sufficiency, officials said.

The credential recognizes the training, experience and expertise of professionals in the field in 12 areas of competency including career development process, customer service, job search skills and program management, officials said.

I was really excited because Im only No. 352 in the U.S. Im the only one I know of in Curry County, said Shinn. It took a long time to get and Im happy about it.

Shinn was presented with the credential at the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals in Reno, Nev.

The Certified Workforce Development Professional program is administered and endorsed by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals.

The associations mission is to be the national voice of the profession and to meet the individual professional development needs of its membership, officials said.
