Why you should participate:
The field of lifelong learning programming has changed significantly in the last few years. There is increasing competition. There are heightened expectations for financial performance, and there is tremendous growth in the knowledge and sophistication of management, marketing, and programming techniques. All this means that professionals in lifelong learning programming cannot perform productively without comprehensive professional training in the things they do every day.
LERN’s comprehensive curriculum provides the knowledge, skills, study, and examination for this training.
This professional education and training is relevant to professionals associated with lifelong learning programs, such as continuing education in colleges and universities; community education in public schools; recreation in parks and recreation departments; meetings, conferences, and seminars for associations; museum education in museums; continuing education and community education in hospitals, and continuing professional education in professional schools and colleges within universities.
