Program Evaluation Certificate

The Program Evaluation Certificate (PEC) is designed for those who need to evaluate, analyze and improve upon programs and/or services within the workplace. If you are a professional or recent graduate looking to expand your skills in the applied field of program evaluation, this certificate provides an active learning experience designed to help you work in a wide range of industries.

Learning Outcomes

The PEC certificate will introduce you to different evaluation approaches, evaluation designs and the skills to apply this knowledge to your own work. Each week, you will be asked to apply your learnings to an ongoing evaluation project for a program within your organization or local community. At a one-on-one consulting session, instructors will give you detailed feedback on your project and answer any questions you have. By the end of the program, you’ll walk away with everything you need to conduct a successful program evaluation.
