Advanced Technical Leadership Certificate


It's not about leaders, its about leadership

The Advanced Technical Leadership Certification is an 10-course plus capstone panel program that builds upon the earned Technical Leadership Certificate. This program adds in more training topics and methods to round out your leadership tool box. Additionally, you will earn the Certification by proving your ability to apply the key principles, incorporate the interaction essentials, and give effective feedback via a capstone program and activities with instructors and staff from the Technology & Leadership Center. 
After completing the courses and earning the Certificate, you will be able to sit for the Certification. The Certification capstone panel will take approximately 2 hours, and will involve multiple instructors and staff. Certification steps include display of Key Behaviors, use of the Interaction Essentials, and providing Effective Feedback--all items learned throughout the Technical Leadership Certificate and refined with the Advanced Technical Leadership Certificate.
