B.S. Level Training Certificate (For Undergraduates Only)
Training in industry is an essential need that is typically delivered by professor trainers or employees with experience but not necessarily with training education. This certificate is designed to help either the experienced skilled worker or a technically educated person to learn methods of knowledge delivery in industrial training settings. The purpose of this coursework is to provide an opportunity for skilled and experienced workers to become training specialists, to provide specialization for undergraduate Psychology majors, and to provide additional specialty choices for students in other disciplines who have an interest in becoming trainers in their field.
Admission Requirements for the Training Certificate:
To be qualified to take the following courses the participant needs to be a high school graduate and meet the minimum admission requirements for enrollment at IIT. Students should either have multiple years of work experience or be of junior or higher status in a four-year degree program at IIT. While having some basic Psychology background would be helpful to the student, this is not a requirement.
