Business U’s Practitioner Certification
A Capstone Experience to Build your Skills
Business U’s Practitioner Certification is designed to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to engage business and industry successfully as a partner in sector strategies, career pathways, work-based learning, and as a customer with government-funded services. The course culminates in an interactive capstone project—a strategic business engagement action plan (BEAP) that includes a one-on-one consultation (oral exam) with the course facilitator. This provides the practitioner with the opportunity to demonstrate that she/he have achieved the learning outcomes.
Practitioners will be introduced to Business U’s demand-driven business engagement framework and relationship building approaches that include a variety of “lenses” to strategize your engagement efforts and tactics. Your capstone project will underpin the development of your regional service portfolio, a needs assessment to validate employer needs, a scorecard, and a communication platform including key message and talking points, calls to action, and value propositions to engage businesses and partners. The BEAP will also serve as your roadmap with specific engagement strategies for your one-to-one onsite consultations and one-to-many outreach efforts.
Unlike other courses that offer “certification,” Business U’s comprehensive and facilitated online course is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) and developed by Business U’s subject matter experts and winner of the IACET 2017 Innovation of the Year Award in Learner Engagement.
