The University of Maine at Presque Isle, as an extension institute of the American Management Association, has developed a multi-course curriculum leading to a Certificate in General Management, Certificate in Human Resources, or Certificate in Customer Service. These programs are specifically created to meet the unique needs of working professionals who want to learn business skills, but do not have the desire to enroll in full-time credit courses.
Courses are designed to help you become more effective in your present position and better prepared for future advancement. 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. The courses are facilitated by instructors with extensive business experience as well as excellent teaching skills.
The curriculum’s flexible design permits participants to take the courses that will benefit them most. There are no prerequisites to any of the courses and student are free to design the program that fits their needs.

The foundation course required for the Certificate in Human Resources is Fundamentals of Human Resources; you earn a certificate when you complete a total of 10 CEUs. These are the only required courses within the curriculum. Courses may be taken in any order and there is no time limit for completion of the program.
