Organize or Join a Peer Learning Group?

Research shows that you can significantly improve the quality of your experience in an online, self-directed program if you are a member of a cohort of fellow members going through the program together.  Members share support, help and accountabilities while going through the program.  If you are interested in organizing or joining a peer learning group, see this application.

Earn a “Certificate in Principles in Professional Consulting”?

This is an option for you.  Requirements for the Certificate include:

  • In each of the three courses, you must:
    • Answer at least 80% of the questions correctly in the post-assessment quiz.
    • Submit your Learning Journal to CDI faculty. Directions are in the Journal.
  • Pay the fee of $155 for faculty to review each of your Learning Journals and share feedback with you.

It takes approximately four hours to complete these requirements. If you choose to earn a Certificate, instead of completing the courses pro bono, you can pay here.
