Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will provide an excellent foundation for a manger to build upon as he or she gains more experience in their organization and begins moving forward in their career.


What are the few significant skills (as opposed to the trivial many) that a manager should have as a package to get the most out of his or her employees - to manage their talent to achieve the maximum efficiency and productivity possible for the department? We believe that a solid understanding and consistent application of these four particular areas of knowledge: motivation, performance analysis, coaching and counseling, are a good place to start. 


This 6 PDH online course is intended for new supervisors or managers, those who have been in management for a while and want to expand their skills, or those who aspire to a management position in the future and want to be as prepared as possible when the opportunity is presented.
