Professional Development Excellence Certificate Opportunities
Certificate of Excellence opportunities are open to all Duke Employees and are available in several disciplines based on specific areas of professional responsibility. Certificate tracks include both core and elective courses. There are no certificate completion target date requirements, however, L&OD encourages you to take at least two courses per year until the certificate is complete.
- Only courses taken after Jan. 1, 2013 are to be used to qualify for a Certificate of Excellence.
- Chosen courses must be instructor-led with a duration of at least one day.
- The participant’s manager/supervisor should be involved in the identification and selection of at least one of the elective courses.
- Core and elective courses can only be applied to one certificate.
- If a core course is used as an elective, you will not be able to earn the certificate where that core class is a requirement.
