Center for Professional Development and Training

Learn More. Grow More. Achieve More.


The mission of the Center for Professional Development and Training (CPDT) is to provide learning opportunities to University employees to develop the knowledge and skills needed to perform in their diverse roles of serving students and supporting the learning process. By partnering with departments at the University, CPDT offers expertise, resources and training to assist them in developing consistent and effective delivery of employee learning programs.


The CPDT was established July, 2003 to align professional development and training initiatives with institutional goals through collaborative efforts with other departments. We offer a wide range of professional, supervisory, technical, and position-based courses for staff and faculty using instructor-led and online training modalities. For available instructor-led courses, select the Events Calendar tile on the Osprey Ascend Welcome page.
