Attaining a certificate may be the best way for students to acquire a specific set of skills or show that they have a proficient level of knowledge in a certain field. Typically taking a year or less to complete, certificates are often able to help individuals sharpen their skills and offer a deeper level of knowledge about a specific field of interest. Those who have completed a certificate program often benefit by having the tangible proof that they do, indeed, have a specialized level of training.
While some may immediately understand the benefits of a certificate program, others may find themselves asking just what is a certificate? At times, a certificate program is offered to assist new employees in making the move from an academic environment to a professional career. At other times, certificate programs are beneficial in helping individuals move from one phase of academic study to the next.
Because certificate courses are offered by a wide range of educational institutions, the cost of different programs can vary widely. Factors that influence the cost of each program include the length of a program, the country from which the program is being offered, and the depth of study. At times, companies requiring a certificate will offer full or partial financial aid to assist an employee.
Many certificate programs are beneficial as they can enhance knowledge about jobs already held by individuals. This additional field-specific training often helps to provide proof that a current employee has attained a specialized skill level and may, in some cases, increase the individual’s chances of being promoted. Working individuals looking to stay up-to-date in their field will almost certainly benefit by gaining a certificate.
With so many options available, determining the type of certificate program that will be the most beneficial can often be overwhelming. If you have been looking for ways to improve your current job skills or enhance your eligibility for an upcoming promotion, be sure to search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The program actively incorporates intensive course sessions, lecture, seminars, and role-play in real and simulated situations to prepare students to utilize conflict analysis and resolution approaches in their work in a variety of fields. The Certificate Program is specifically designed for students and mid-career professionals to train them in conflict analysis and resolution theory, research, and practical techniques relevant to their focused area of study or work. The certification in conflict resolution is open to students or mid-career professionals seeking a certificate degree alone, as well as to students enrolled in an Associate's degree program. The Conflict Resolution course explores a variety of techniques, theories, and frameworks for analyzing and resolving conflict. Students will understand the procedure from conflict analysis to exploring techniques, process models, and third-party roles to constructively intervene in conflict. Because this class emphasizes building conflict resolution skills and abilities, a significant portion of the class will be experientially-based. Much of the class will involve engaging in simulated conflict scenarios and subsequent reflection. Interpersonal, small group, community, and international conflict will be discussed in the course, but special emphasis will be placed on interpersonal and small group conflicts as the building blocks for doing conflict resolution in larger and more complex settings. The certificate program in conflict resolution requires completion of 15 credit hours (5 classes). Coursework...
