    3 courses on subject matter and 2 general ones? That counts as 60% effectiveness in my books…

    • Thank you for your comment. Keep in mind that this is a graduate credential that provides 15 hours of graduate credit and the classes are a substantial amount of work. The credential also is a component of our M.A. degree in Human Performance Improvement.
