Certified Divorce Specialist (CDS™) Training


Divorcing Clients Need Special Care.


Add value, credibility, and stand out in your industry with the Certified Divorce Specialist (CDS™) program–a comprehensive training for professionals in various industries who wish to provide better services for their divorcing clients.

The Certified Divorce Specialist (CDS™) program is a highly involved participatory training that is divided into two sections. The first section consists of a specialized communication skills training, with the focus on integrating those skills in a client/session environment. In the second section, you will learn specific information regarding the Legal, Financial, Mental Health, and Real Estate fields, that are essential to the divorce process. Upon the completion of the course, you must pass a CDS™ online assessment with a 75% or higher in order to receive the CDS™ designation. There is a $95 annual reinstatement fee, and you are required to submit 10 hours of divorce specific continuing education every two years to maintain your CDS™ designation. National Association of Divorce Professional (NADP) meetings are approved for CDS™ continuing education credits.
