Nonprofit Management Certification Program

Nonprofit Management Certification: Fundamental

Designed for leaders of nonprofits who want to receive practical knowledge on how to run a nonprofit and make a bigger impact in the community. The Nonprofit Management Certification Program helps nonprofit managers develop leadership and supervisory skills to advance their career and be more effective in their current positions. Through training sessions taught by nonprofit experts, participants will have an opportunity to apply and practice new skills and gain confidence in decision making. The program also provides a confidential setting to discuss challenges and network with other community leaders. To establish a setting with potential for networking and rapport, registration is limited.

Nonprofit Management Certification: Professional

As nonprofit leaders build their careers, finding ways to increase organizational efficiency and execute best practices remain imperatives to drive success. This course is for professionals who want to continue to develop their skills around leadership and build an expanded nonprofit management toolkit. Designed as the next step for those who have completed Nonprofit Management Certification: Fundamentals, NMC: Professional covers next-level nonprofit management topics. This program will help you grow professionally, apply a broad skill set to advance the nonprofit mission and succeed as a talented leader in your own right. We will cover program evaluation, developing staff, project management, and other advanced topics to elevate the nonprofit manager’s skills for the future.

Both levels of NMC include six sessions. Participation in five of the six sessions is mandatory to receive a certificate. Participants may not register mid-training.

What will you learn?

Each session focuses on a different topic pertinent to management in the nonprofit sector and covers practical knowledge, tools, and best practices to help:

  • Understand nonprofit finances
  • Navigate the nonprofit lifecycle
  • Effectively work with a board
  • Build a team with coaching and motivation
  • Fine-tune human resource practices through conflict and performance management

Session I: Leadership Essentials
Session II: Life Cycle & Board Engagement
Session III: Coaching as Supervision
Session IV: Managing Budgets
Session V: Leading People/Human Resources
Session VI: Diversity & Conflict Management

  • I liked the networking in the Tulsa class for Nonprofit Management Certification Program with people I would not normally have the opportunity to mingle. So, the flexibility to float between the 2 cohorts in OKC and Tulsa is great!

  • You don’t know what you don’t know, and I wanted to learn in the right environment with the Nonprofit Management Certification Program. I didn't want to have that oh gosh we've got a problem environment.
