Jim Gibson, former CM student “Since attending the CM classes, I see my position as well as managers around me from a different perspective. I have been able to associate a large portion of what I have learned in class to my current situation at work; this knowledge as well as experience will help me get to the next level. The class without certification has value of its own, but certification is icing on the cake.”
Bill Davis, former CM instructor “The CM Program offers 3 exceptional courses that enhance skills and knowledge of professional management. As an outcome, the CM program adds immediate and long term value as students improve their technical, conceptual, and human skills and are able to apply them in their workplace. In the process, the three classes lead to professional management certification which is an exceptional professional accomplishment. As an instructor of other management courses, I still find the CM curriculum to be the strongest I have used.”
