CUNY Professional Development Program
The CUNY Professional Development Program (CPDP) provides courses for employees in various CUNY job groups. Department directors, managers, supervisors, team leaders, non-managerial professionals, and administrative support professionals may choose from courses designed to enhance professional competence and personal proficiency. CUNY faculty members are always welcome. Professional competency certificate programs assist managers, supervisors, and administrative support professionals in achieving their professional and career development goals. A limited number of on-site technology courses also are available. All CPDP courses are designed to assist CUNY employees in working smarter instead of harder. Visit www.cuny.edu/training to view the current course catalog, program schedule, and monthly course fliers.
Certificate Program for Administrative Professionals
Administrative staff members may take courses that qualify them to receive the Citywide Training Center's Administrative Professionals Certificate (APC). Three office management core courses, one communications course, and one approved technology course must be completed within a two-year period to qualify for the APC. Technology courses for the APC must be taken at CTC locations. For more information about the APC, please review the CUNY CTC catalog <pdf>.
Registration for CUNY Professional Development Program Courses
To register for CUNY Professional Development Program courses, employees must enter their contact information and selected courses into the PDLM E-Application (“E-App”). Employees must then print and sign the “E-App,” obtain their supervisor's signature, and submit it to their college Human Resources Office for authorization. The college Human Resources Office will forward the authorized “E-App” to the OHRM Professional Development Office for processing. E-Applications should be received in the Professional Development Office at least 10 days before the start of a course. The Professional Development Office generally confirms an applicant's course registration five to seven days before the start of the course. The PDLM E-Application is available at www.cuny.edu/training under the REGISTRATION link or click here
