Customized Professional Development Programs and Workshops


Customized professional development programs – designed for the specific needs of your business, presented when you need it, and delivered where you want it!

As you think about enhancing performance and gaining competitive edge, are you also thinking about how you can best align your talent development and business strategies? UMD Continuing Education can help you identify the training objectives necessary for closing performance gaps and provide your team with empowering tools to obtain new skills and knowledge for optimal job effectiveness and career expansion.

To meet the unique needs of organizations, we provide customized training solutions with a customer-centered focus. First, we get to know you: we learn about your organization’s culture, the industries you serve, and your workforce dynamics. Then we work collaboratively to identify the learning goals. In developing training objectives, we draw upon our deep pool of content experts from academia and business. These specialists are chosen not only for their subject matter knowledge, but also for their credibility in real-world experience and professional influence. This expertise is coupled with instructional design input to create innovative content and applied activities geared for adult working learners.

Our programs are delivered either in face-to-face format so learners can network with other professionals seeking to enhance similar skill sets, or online to meet personal schedules and learning paces. Assessments and quality assurance audits are performed to ensure goals and learning objectives have been achieved.

Customized programs are delivered how, when, and where you want it!
