Office of Professional Development


“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 that had a request. Also, kudos to the staff for continuing professional development services during such frightful circumstances.”
