Overland Park, Kansas Apr 14, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Learning and development provider SkillPath has introduced four skills-based, online certificate programs, produced in partnership with Graceland University. Training programs include:
- Accelerated Leadership Certificate Program
- Accelerated Microsoft Excel Certificate Program
- Accelerated HR Management Certificate Program
- Accelerated Advanced Management Certificate Program
This content collaboration is a first for the long-time affiliate organizations. Training materials for the courses are researched and drafted by SkillPath’s instructional design team, reviewed by Graceland University’s faculty, and approved by the university’s Executive Council.
Each program is delivered virtually over five days by different facilitators, who provide varying perspectives and real-world applications of the course content. Upon completion of a comprehensive exam, program participants receive a certificate and eBadge from Graceland University.
“Lifelong learning and intellectual dexterity are so important for today’s working professionals,” said Michele Markey, SkillPath CEO. “To keep up with changes in the workplace, learning has to be regular and convenient. When you’re in school, you don’t always know what’s ahead. Suddenly, you’re promoted to management, or your role requires high-level Excel skills, and you need to get up to speed in a rapid fashion.”
Jeffery McElroy, Dean of Graceland’s C.H. Sandage School of Business, agreed. “These programs offer an abbreviated version of what we’re teaching in the classroom, and the skills learned are new for some professionals or a refresher for others who haven’t used them in a few years,” he said. “They’re also part of the Graceland and SkillPath synergy team’s efforts to strengthen continuing education and ongoing skills training for working professionals.”
Each online certificate program is offered monthly. Participants can register online at www.skillpath.com or by calling SkillPath’s Customer Care team at 1-800-873-7545.
