“The Certificate of Professional Development would be helpful to students as it exposes them to everyday situations in the workplace and assists them in learning how to deal effectively with these situations.  Having the certificate would give them an advantage over another job applicant as it shows that they have been educated and practiced in these important skills.”

"Thank you for having such an enriching program available to us! I feel comfortable saying that I've learned more applicable life skills in the last few months, during this program alone, than any other class or certification I've had before. I would recommend it to all Nicolet students."
