Training Programs for Supervisors

New Supervisor Certificate:

A program designed for newly hired supervisors or current employees who have recently taken on supervisory responsibilities. All new supervisors will be expected to complete this series. This program is also an excellent review session for more seasoned supervisors - this can be accomplished by attending the New Supervisor orientation session (full day). To participate in the program, current supervisors must first contact Professional Development and Training.

To receive a New Supervisor certificate the requirements are:

  • 1. One-day New Supervisor Orientation
  • 2. Multicultural Team Leadership class
  • 3. Employee Relations class
  • 4. One Elective : A workshop from the Professional and Development (PD&T) class schedule.Any PD&T class completed by the registrant up to six months prior to the full day orientation day is considered suitable in satisfying this elective requirement.
