Our courses are best suited for the following individuals:
- People who are new to the nonprofit sector or to a specific discipline, and who want to get up to speed quickly on a particular topic.
- People who have been in the sector for some time but are considering moving from one discipline to another (e.g. currently work in communications but would like to make a career move into fundraising).
- Board members, executive directors or other senior staff who are looking to sharpen or refresh their understanding of particular topics in the sector in order to better contribute to and guide those activities in their respective organizations.
- Nonprofit professionals looking for courses that qualify for professional development credits from certification programs such as CFRE, CAVR or PAVR-O.
In general, our courses are designed to provide a broad overview of a specific topic. By taking a course on a particular subject, you will come away with a fuller understanding of the content, practical tools and templates that you can start using immediately, and a much better understanding of specific issues or areas that you may wish to research in greater detail elsewhere.
