My courses gave me the skills to understand Canadian culture and the ways of business here. They were very helpful, and I was really impressed with the quality of the teaching and the course content. This institution has helped me get established in this country.

Franklin Asprilla. Graduate. Certificate in Professional Management specializing in Strategic Management.

Franklin Asprilla, an economist from Colombia, moved to

Calgary in 2010 with his wife and daughter, with high hopes for their new lives in Canada. “I wanted better life conditions for my family,” he says. “And, I knew Canada was a warm country that opened its doors to immigrants.” Once Franklin arrived, he began looking for work. He was well educated with a Master’s Degree in Business from his country and had years of business experience. “My English was poor at first, so in interviews, they would recognize my skills and experience but always encouraged me to take some education in Canada,” Franklin says. “It meant sacrificing time with my family, but I realized it was something I had to do to improve my language skills and to learn the Canadian business culture.” After researching educational programs in Calgary, Franklin decided Continuing Education’s Certificate in Professional Management specializing in Strategic Management was the best choice for him. “The first course I took was difficult for me, but in the second course, I was able to participate more, and shared some of my own experiences and background in class ... very soon, I was able to put my school work into practice in my job.” “I have learned to love Canada,” says Franklin, who now works as a pricing analyst with a large retail company, and plans to continue working hard and furthering his career.

FLEXIBLE COURSE DELIVERY

TAKING COURSES ONLINE

UNCERTAIN ABOUT ONLINE LEARNING?

Courses are offered in a variety of formats including classroom and online. Occasionally, courses are offered in a blended format — partially in the classroom and partially online. Some certificates are achieved completely in the classroom, others completely through online learning. Some certificate programs give you the choice of taking your courses in the classroom or online.

Learning online caters to busy schedules by taking the learning experience out of the traditional classroom and on to the Internet.

Before taking your first instructor-led and interactive online course, you will be required to take BMC 352 Learning Online. This course is your chance to explore online learning with instructors who are experts in this format. You will learn essential skills for success, challenge your abilities and ultimately decide if online learning is for you.

TAKING COURSES IN THE CLASSROOM Continuing Education courses are held at the University of Calgary main and downtown campuses at times that are convenient for adult learners. Class times vary, depending on the program. Main Campus 2500 University Drive NW Downtown Campus 906 8th Avenue SW

good thinking.

Most of Continuing Education’s online courses are instructor-led interactive courses. Students work within scheduled start- and end-dates and observe set timelines for learning activities and assignments. For most courses, students are free to choose when they go online during the week. However, some courses require that students attend online classes on designated dates and at designated times.

For more information about the course BMC 352 Learning Online go to conted.ucalgary.ca/elearn/

For courses that allow you to choose when you will go online, you should plan to log in to the university’s online learning software — Desire2Learn — three to four times per week in order to keep pace with the class. You should plan on studying and working approximately six hours per week per course.

“ GRADING Student learning is assessed through assignments and examinations, and grades are assigned for each course in a program of study. Most certificate programs follow the grading standards established for undergraduate instruction at the University of Calgary. In the Certificate for Emerging Leaders, student learning is assessed through the evaluation of a summary journal that is submitted following completion of the required number of instructional hours. In the Office Applications Certificate, student learning is assessed through examinations completed at the end of each course in the program of study.

GRADUATION In June of each year, a Continuing Education graduation ceremony is held for students who have completed their certificate requirements. Once you have officially graduated, you will be able to obtain an associate membership in the University of Calgary Alumni Association.

My certificate program has proven useful in my personal life as well, as I have been able to transfer my new knowledge and skills towards coaching adult athletes in weightlifting. Now, I use my education every day in my job and in my athletic career.

Shellen Thomas. Graduate. Certificate in Adult Learning specializing in Workplace Learning.

Shellen Thomas is a busy and determined woman. “In 2010, my employer offered me the chance to take the Adult Learning Certificate to help with a new project we were rolling out,” says Shellen. “I jumped at the chance to go back to school and build on my BA.” At the same time that she began her certificate program, Shellen began another journey as a Master Olympic weightlifting athlete. “Just one year after starting my program, I found myself doing my school work in Cyprus while I was competing at the World Master Weightlifting Championships. That year, I won Silver.” Today, Shellen has moved on to a new support position. In addition to many other duties, she assists in a learning and mentoring program for employees and is also an NCCP Certified Level 1 Weight Lifting Coach. “I truly believe if I hadn’t started the two journeys at the same time, I would not have been as successful in either pursuit, and I would not have had the courage to move on in my career. Having success in the classroom affected my confidence in my sport, and that in turn gave me greater confidence in the classroom. “Continuing Education has changed my life completely,” Shellen says. “I’m very grateful for that.”

Document Management 403.220.2988 • business.conted@ucalgary.ca • conted.ucalgary.ca/document

Document management encompasses the processes, techniques, and technologies for controlling and organizing documents and records, whether stored electronically or on paper. Control includes the capture, storage, access, and use of data and information stored outside relational databases. Unstructured data includes any document, file, graphic, image, text, report, form, video, or sound recording that has not been structured into rows and columns and stored in a relational database. Document management has a strategic and tactical focus that overlaps with other data management functions in addressing the need for data governance, architecture, security, managed metadata, and data quality of unstructured data. There is also a tangible overlap with other operational and project functions, including project management, cost controls, supply chain management, quality assurance, safety, and regulatory. The Certificate in Document Management addresses the management of this unstructured data within and between organizations. The processes, techniques, and technologies involved in document management will be presented from a systemic perspective ensuring a holistic understanding of the document management life-cycle. This approach will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to participate fully in the emerging discipline of document management.

Health, Safety and Environment 403.220.2988 • business.conted@ucalgary.ca • conted.ucalgary.ca/hse

How we manage workplace and environmental health and safety issues is critical to workers, organizations, and the environment. Organizations are highly motivated to avoid the huge costs associated with occupational and environmental accidents. Legislation requiring employer compliance creates change and challenge for health, safety and environment (HSE) professionals who must act in the roles of motivator, change leader and enforcer. Employers are looking for people who can identify, evaluate, and communicate information about workplace and environmental conditions that may have adverse impacts on human health. They need people who have the knowledge and skills to plan and implement strategies to control and manage potential problems, and motivate proactive behaviour change. The Health, Safety and Environment Certificate program provides students with the skills and knowledge needed to develop and manage effective health and safety programs for a wide variety of workplace settings.

Graduate

I liked both ways of learning, but I think I prefer the classroom. Online is best for someone who can be very independent, and needs flexibility. For me, both were fantastic and I would do them both again.

Carlos Palacios-Fernandez landed his first position in IT and quickly realized to do his job well, he would have to increase his knowledge base.

Carlos came to Calgary from Mexico City in 2008 to work as a chef at a downtown restaurant. Having gotten his start as a Cordon-Bleu trained pastry chef, Carlos knew the food industry well. And on his own, he’d developed strong IT skills. When friends suggested he was a great fit for a job at a larger organization that would combine his food industry knowledge and his IT skills, he decided to apply for the position. “I had taken some courses in the past, but mostly I was self-taught,” says Carlos. “So, when I got this job and found I was working in three different systems, I knew right away I had to find a way to increase my knowledge and skills.” “I was able to apply my learning right away,” he says. “I think if I hadn’t taken these courses I would not be able to do this job.” With the help of the courses in the Certificate in IT Fundamentals, Carlos has settled into in his new role, and feels completely at ease with his IT responsibilities.
