This Is The Place For You

Whatever your career goals, our professional development programs can help you take the next step. 

With offerings like our online industry credential certificate programs and our programs for specific professions (educators, physical therapists, safety, social workers), Grand Valley will help you take your career to the next level. Learners in these programs are not earning academic credit and are not eligible for the L3 account initiative.
