Program Overview

The University of West Florida offers a certificate in Workforce and Program Development. This program may be completed entirely online and should be earned after completion of 17 credit hours. The program in Workforce and Program Development intends to prepare individuals to meet the challenges of designing, developing and implementing interventions to support employers, employees, and individuals who are underemployed and unemployed. From trainers to counselors to curriculum developers, graduates work in a variety of organizations to support career and technical education and training. The program is designed to prepare graduates to plan, supervise, conduct, and evaluate workforce and training programs in business, industry, and government. Individuals who desire to work in PK-12 environments should gain a foundation in necessary skills. However, Florida certification in career and technical education is granted by local school districts.

The State of Florida requires individuals who teach in the Workforce and Adult Education content areas to complete initial certification courses to receive permanent teaching credentials. In the past, individuals enrolled in the classes have only received college credit for completing the courses. To further promote and identify UWF as the leading educational institution for Workforce and Adult Education in Florida, students now receive a certificate designation after completion of all four courses. Additional endorsements for Workforce Education and Workforce Directorships may be obtained through the online campus.
