Training and Development Certificates of Completion
What is a Certificate of Completion?
Certificates of Completion are awarded to all students who successfully complete a series of linked courses with a defined focus. The certificate distributed upon completion of the identified courses reflects the total number of credits earned (graduate or undergraduate). These certificates of completion have been approved by the appropriate department(s). The individual courses will appear on your PSU transcript. The title of the certificate of completion will not. This series of courses is not eligible for federal financial aid unless taken as part of a degree program.
Each program begins with Principles of Training and Development and ends with Contemporary Issues in Training and Development or Culminating Project: Training & Development. The remaining courses can be taken in any order. Courses are 3-4 credits. Any of the courses can be taken individually after Principles of Training and Development.
Formal admission to PSU is not required to work on a Certificate of Completion. Courses can be taken for undergraduate or graduate credit. For formal admission to the Graduate Certificate in Training and Development, contact Tracy Williams-Murphy, Program Manager.

These materials do NOT replace textbooks. Textbooks are required for the classes in addition to the course material packets.
