"As an affiliate of USM Professional Development Programs, my organization has sent 10 employees to the Certificate Program in Supervision. Each workshop provided practical skills they use every day while managing and coaching employees. They related to the case studdies and examples of difficult situations and often talk about what they learned in the program. It has been a satisfying and producitve investment for our organization."
