    Optional Learning Opportunities

    Want to learn more? The Organized Office Worker Certificate Program ends on February 4, 2022. However, you can continue improving your supervisory skills any time you like. In fact, research shows that if you space your learning activities on a topic over time, you'll get more out of your learning experience and remember it longer - so extend your learning with these suggested activities. Unlike your 15 required online courses, these activities are optional and do not need to be completed to receive your certificate.
