Want to learn how UCM’s career-accelerating workforce programs can help you launch a new career or excel in your current position? Sign up today for a one-on-one chat with Clarinda Dir, UCM’s workforce expert, to discuss how we can help you meet your goals. Clarinda returned to college as an adult learner herself. She has numerous years of experience helping busy adults find certificate programs that fit their goals, schedules and budgets.

University of Central Missouri’s valuable certificate programs are offered in-person, online or hybrid with scholarships available to qualifying students. We offer courses in high-demand areas such as healthcare, information technology, business, manufacturing and logistics/warehouse. Some programs can be completed in as little as six weeks.  

Through a partnership with the Full Employment Council, qualifying individuals are able to receive debt-free scholarships. Additional debt-free scholarship opportunities are available to qualifying individuals through a community initiative sponsored by Truman Heartland Community Foundation in partnership with Community Services League.
