KCPDC Supervisor Certification
KCPDC Supervisor Certification is a program developed by the Kansas City Professional Development Council (KCPDC) for supervisors at institutions of higher education in the Eastern Kansas and Western Missouri area. The program is designed for supervisors, those aspiring to be supervisors, or anyone interested in learning more about supervision. The program consists of a group of core and elective sessions. Each three-hour session is hands-on and interactive; simulations and skill practices will be used when possible. The content is practical yet generic enough to apply to a variety of higher education environments. Upon completion of the six core classes and an additional elective session, participants will receive a certificate from the Kansas City Professional Development Council.
Registration is FREE. Course offerings appear in the Staff Development Class Search. Enter ZPDC in the search field. You may register through MyJCCC using your selected CRNs.
