I thought it was fantastic. I am the CEO of Andiamo, and we had 20+ members of our company sign up for CDSP after hearing strong feedback from a previous student. I heard from many members of the company that they were grateful that we were offering the course and found it to be very helpful.

September's program is now full. Register for October, November, or a private program for your team below.

With the fast-growing demand for diversity Sourcing, we are now offering a complete Diversity Sourcing Program. Since its introduction last year, the Program has been in high demand and received numerous positive feedback from participants. The Program consists of a four-day intensive training course, capped by the Certified Diversity Sourcing Professional (CDSP) certification exam.

The four training webinars provide instruction on the six core sourcing skill areas covered in our original Certified People Sourcing Professional exam, with a specific focus on applying those skills to diversity sourcing. You will learn the essential techniques and strategies to be proficient in sourcing and achieve your diversity sourcing goals.

You will receive the recordings and slides from each day’s class, so even if you cannot attend the daily sessions live, you can still get the full benefit of the training from reviewing these materials.

Before You Sign Up

We anticipate talent acquisition professionals from various backgrounds and different experience levels will participate in the CDSP Program. The course is calibrated for maximum accessibility to accommodate a range of needs. If you are new to sourcing or an experienced recruiter who sources infrequently, we recommend reviewing these sample exam questions before registering. If you find the questions especially tricky, please consider foundational training (such as the What Every Recruiter Needs to Know About Sourcing class) before enrolling in the CDSP Program.

Day 1 - Introduction, Expectations & Exam Overview

Join us on Tuesday, October 12th (8 AM to 9 AM Pacific) for the program's first day. You will learn what sourcing is all about (including the key principle of effective searching) and the part sourcing plays in attaining your diversity goals. We will introduce key diversity sourcing concepts and provide an overview of what to expect from the CDSP exam. This overview will include a review of several sample test questions to provide context for what you will learn on Days 2 and 3.

 

Day 1 Syllabus

Day 2 - Diversity Sourcing Fundamentals

Return to class on Wednesday, October 13th (8 AM to 9 AM Pacific). The primary focus of Day 2 will be to cover the core skill areas of Exploratory Research, Google Search, X-Ray Searching, LinkedIn Search, Social Sourcing, and Cross-Referencing Information, as well as demonstrating the ways these skills apply to diversity Sourcing.

 

Day 2 Syllabus

Day 3 - A Deeper Look at Diversity Search Strategies

Day three of the program is on Thursday, October 13th (8 AM to 9 AM Pacific). Building on the foundations laid on Day 2, our focus in this session will be to apply core Sourcing skills to a range of intermediate to advanced diversity search applications. We will demonstrate specific search strings, strategies, sites, and tools for each of several common target diversity candidate types (including women, under-represented racial and ethnic minorities, veterans, LGBTQ, and people with disabilities). You will also have some “homework” to do!

 

Day 3 Syllabus

Day 4 - Homework Review, Demonstrations, and Q&A

Friday, October 15th (8 AM to 9 AM Pacific) is the program's final session. On Day 4, we will review homework assigned on Day 3, and an instructor will demonstrate example searches requested by attendees in real-time. Day 4 is your best opportunity to get any in-depth questions answered live by the instructors.
