This week was the first day back for our students. For those who want to join in and further your own professional education there are several opportunities being offered to university staff.
The Web Accessibility Essentials class offered through Employee & Organizational Development will be taught on September 8. This is a great opportunity for anyone who has not been exposed to accessibility but who need to know the basics. Designers, managers, and content writers will benefit as much as web developers. The corresponding advanced class will take place in November.
Another set of classes that could be useful is the project management training offered by the Project Management Office. Anyone leading significant projects should consider taking these courses. The PMO offers a series of classes, which can be combined together into a certificate program, throughout the year. There are two courses scheduled for September, one for October, and one for November.
The university also offers several programs for supervisors and managers, including three certificate programs.
My inbox is constantly being bombarded by third party organizations offering both free and paid webinars. If none of the university offerings meet your needs there is always something online that you can find. Whether you take one of these courses because your job requires continuing education credits, or just because you want to enhance your skill set, classes are now on session.
