More than half of all US workers actively seek advancement in their present field (PricewaterhouseCooper, 2021). Additionally, an increasing number of companies and organizations desire to upskill or reskill employees to sustain business growth and secure success. The time is ripe to launch an online certificate program that provides individuals with an opportunity to learn valuable skillsets and to earn a credential for career advancement.
