1. Certificate Programs
These programs are open to ALL Merit System employees at all levels. The individual classes that make up each program are open to everyone. You do not need to be pursuing a "certificate" in order to attend these training classes. The four certificate programs are:
- Leading People Certificate
This certificate program is designed for both current and future supervisors. Courses are designed to share leadership skills that will assist the participant with the "people skills" associated with supervision.
- Managing Processes Certificate
This certificate program is designed for both current and future supervisors. Courses are designed to share leadership processes that will assist the participant with the "tasks" associated with supervision
- Professional Development Certificate
This certificate programs is designed for anyone who desires self-improvement. Courses are designed to enhance the participants "personal brand" and increase their overall value to their jurisdiction.
- Civil Servant Leadership Certificate
This quadrant will be the "capstone" quadrant of The 360° Leader Program, in that participants MUST complete the other three quadrants (Leading People, Managing Processes, and Professional Development) before becoming eligible to enroll in the CSL quadrant. Participants will be assigned a cohort of peers who will attend all sessions in a lock-step fashion. The CSL program lasts 16 weeks, and consists of classroom-based learning, e-learning, assigned readings, group discussions, a service project, and a final presentation.
Thank you for your patience as we improve our products and services to provide you with the best possible training experience.
