The University of Maine at Presque Isle will be offering two courses this fall beginning Tuesday, Oct. 5 and Wednesday, Oct. 20 as part of its American Management Association's certificate programs. The course registration deadline is seven days prior to each course starting date.
These fall courses, part of a multi-course curriculum leading to Certificates in Management and Human Resources Management, are specifically created to meet the unique needs of working professionals who want to be more effective in their current positions and better prepared for future advancement, according to Keith Madore, campus AMA coordinator.
By meeting in a classroom setting with other managers from many different organizations, students are able to see how other companies handle problems similar to their own. Instructors with extensive business experience and excellent teaching skills facilitate the courses.
The course What Managers Do will be held on Tuesdays from Oct. 5 to Nov. 9, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the Campus Center, Alumni Room. Kim Jones, Marketing Coordinator at Cary Medical Center, will lead the course. The registration deadline for this course is Sept. 28.
Fundamentals of Human Resources is scheduled for Wednesdays from Oct. 20 through Nov. 17, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the Campus Center. Clare Exner, Chair of Professional Programs at UMPI, will lead the course. The registration deadline for this course is Oct. 13.
To earn an AMA certificate, each student is required to complete six courses for Management or five for Human Resources Management. Courses may be taken in any order and there is no time limit for completion of the program. Courses also can be offered on-site, Madore said.
Each course meets once a week for six weeks and one or more courses may be taken per term. The cost is $240 per course, and includes instruction, text and materials. Continuing Education Units are available for an additional charge. For more information or to register, contact Keith Madore at 768-9568 or .
