Take Career Counselling
M A. Psychology in 1978 Retired Banker
It's seems so nice to see you level of interest even after retirement. There are very few people who retire physically but not mentally, quite good. Your wholesome experience will definitely help students who will approach you for career guidance. A certification course in career counseling will refresh your subject knowledge as well as provide you skills and current practices required to go ahead in this profession. At first , I would suggest youtolook for a diplomaor post graduate diplomacourse offered by Indian Institute OfCounselling. The training modules and workshops provided here are of exceptional quality. It offers full time courses as well as through distance mode. You can enroll for any of the ones that suits you.
Alternatively, you can go for International Diploma In Guidance and Counselling provided by NCERT in all the regional colleges of India,in Collaboration with Common Wealth of Learning (COL), Canada. Ncert conducts entrance examinations for it and only selected candidates are allowed to pursue the one year program. the program is partly online and partly residential.
You can also go for purely online courses provided by many institutes in India but it would only provide you the knowledge but not necessarily the hands on experience and practical skills required by this profession. Well , you can compensate this by doing an internship for a minimum period of six months under any experienced career counselor.
Hope my suggestions would help you.Still have queries? Feel free to ask..
