Certified Manager™ Leadership Intensive Fast-Track

LIFT lets you earn 17 college credits in just seven weeks

By enrolling in the Certified Manager™ Leadership Intensive Fast-Track program, or LIFT, at the DCTC Apple Valley site, you will secure the highly-respected Certified Manager (CM) designation offered by the Institute for Certified Professional Managers and receive a college certificate in supervisory leadership in seven short weeks.

DCTC is offering this intensive program for individuals who need real education and real results in a very short amount of time. Tuition, fees and all exam costs total $4,000. It’s important to explore all your financial aid options as you may qualify for dislocated worker funding and/or college loans and grants. You also have the potential to earn credit for your life experiences or apply previously earned credits, which means you might be a lot closer to a degree than you think.

LIFT Course Schedule

Between June 21 and August 6, 2010, you will attend six courses:
