Management and leadership training at BRCC

brcc-headerWhether you’re new to management or a seasoned leader, take your skills to the next level with these certificate programs at Blue Ridge Community College (BRCC).  Each has been carefully designed to help you transfer new skills directly to the workplace.


Management Certificate Program*
Businesses typically make front-line promotions based on the potential of prospective managers, often without providing the resources and training needed to reach that potential and provide effective management. Learn how to create effective relationships, build team unity, develop and set expectations, measure performance and obtain developed goals. This course is appropriate for new managers, aspiring managers, and motivated individuals in any organization.
$99; Four Mondays, Sep 2-23

You’ll also learn how to develop an organizational value statement and establish key performance indicators.
