Professional Career-Building Certificates | Office of Professional Development

We have recently moved many of our courses to virtual online instruction from their regular classroom format. Gene Deese, a technology support analyst and future project manager at UNC Pembroke had this to say about one of the online classes for project management:
"The third course that I took in the Project Management Certificate series was How to Be a Highly Effective Project Manager. By far, it exceeded my expectations of topics I initially thought the class was going to address. Dr. Alan Letton once again went above and beyond his required duties to provide information to any class member who had a request. Also, kudos to the staff for continuing professional development services during such frightful circumstances."
