MVC to offer certified nonprofit leadership program online

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Dr. Sharon Weiser, Missouri Valley College vice president of academic affairs, has announced that MVC will collaborate with the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance to offer a Certified Nonprofit Professional program online.

In order to complete the CNP online program, students must possess a bachelor's degree, complete six eight-week courses, complete a 300 hour internship, attend the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Management Institute and participate in the Nonprofit Leadership Student Association.

The program is designed to allow students to complete the CNP certification program in one year. Each course costs $400 and participation in the Student Association which costs $100 per term.

Being a certified nonprofit professional demonstrates that a job candidate possesses critical competencies nonprofits look for when hiring.

"The Certified Nonprofit Professional credential ensures that nonprofit professionals have the training that nonprofit employers seek when making hiring decisions," said Heather Troth, Missouri Valley College CNP program director. "This certification is important for young professionals just entering the work force as well as long time nonprofit managers looking for continuing education and professionals looking to change or expand their professional opportunities."
