Purdue offers a variety of lifelong learning opportunities in the way of certificate and short courses. These courses are a way for working professionals to become certified in a certain specialty area, fulfill requirements, or stay at the forefront of emerging trends. Most of the courses in the lineup are offered in a 100% online format. Building on Purdue’s reputation for excellence, the certificate courses are designed with rigorous content by highly-qualified subject matter experts (SMEs). In addition, the ease of an online delivery format is a very convenient option for learning tools, methods and concepts that will make you more competitive and impactful in your organization.
Certification courses are a way for you to fulfill professional requirements and expand your knowledge to position yourself for career growth. Our online Lean Six Sigma certification series is designed for the busy professional who would like to be more effective in identifying waste in processes and lowering the occurrence of defects in the production and delivery of either products or services. The course list includes the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, Lean Principles, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, and Green Belt Refresher. Two Project Management online courses are also available: Project Management Essentials and PMP® Exam Preparation.
Our short courses offer an exceptional opportunity for participants to further develop their knowledge, enhance their skill set, and advance their careers. Most of our courses are online, but Technical Management Institute is held annually in October on the campus of Purdue University.
