Register for the Spring Semester of Effective Staff Supervision

By January 14, 2019January 17th, 2019

Registration is now open for the spring semester (February 25 – April 17, 2019) of Effective Staff Supervision in Nonprofit Organizations. The course is a collaborative effort between 501(c) Services, the administrator of 501(c) Agencies Trust, and the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA). Scholarships are again being offered exclusively to members of 501(c) Agencies Trust.

The Effective Staff Supervision in Nonprofit Organizations e-certificate is a dynamic and engaging certification offered to nonprofit supervisors. The eight week course is part of the NLA’s total CNP program and can be taken as a stand-alone certificate. The program’s first session, offered last fall, quickly filled after the announcement of its creation. NLA again expects to have to create a waiting list.

Effective Staff Supervision provides the knowledge and tools needed to excel and expand the strengths of supervisors. Offered online, learners have the opportunity to interact with the course facilitator, as well as their peers, as they add and augment critical skills over eight intense weeks. The certificate focuses on topics such as risk mitigation; hiring best practices; interviewing like a pro; delegation; employee recruitment, retention and engagement; team building; and recognition.

Enrollment is $480 for members of the Trust. There are also additional scholarships available for Trust members. (see below) The first session of the eight week course is scheduled to begin February 25th. The course will be offered again this fall.

Continuing Education Loved By Nonprofit Professionals

“Every week I was amazed by how well the training material was planned and presented. They incorporated a variety of training methods (articles, videos, online tests, additional links to resources) for the lesson. The writing assignments really encouraged me to think about the lesson and how to apply it to my work environment. The material was current, interesting and informative.”

– Patricia Murphy, Effective Staff Supervision student
