Nonprofit Management Certificate Program

Maintaining a well trained and competent staff throughout all components of a nonprofit organization is critical, but where does an organization go to find training opportunities to insure a well trained and competent staff?

There are more than 2,000 nonprofit organizations in Mobile and Baldwin Counties in Alabama alone. Most of these organizations are in competition for the same sources of funding and are not well positioned or attractive enough to be seriously considered for funding because they have a weak organizational structure. Many nonprofit managers and boards do not understand why they are not receiving the financial resources needed to run their organizations and find themselves in the management position without adequate training and skills to run their programs efficiently and effectively.

The Nonprofit Management Certificate Program is designed for anyone in the non-profit field who has recently assumed management responsibilities, is working in a non-profit organization, serving on a board of directors, or involved in founding a non-profit organization. The program is designed to help existing non-profit leaders hone their skills and introduce new leaders to the skills critical to guiding their non-profit to effectively fulfilling its mission.

The seven-course curriculum spans 32 weeks giving you an intensive training in non-profit management. Upon completion of the seven courses, you will receive a Level I non-credit certificate in Non-Profit Management. Those wishing to explore rounding out their knowledge of non-profit operations may wish to enroll in the Grantwriting Workshop and will receive a Level II certificate upon completion.  Registration for the Nonprofit Management Certificate requires a $25 nonrefundable application fee and must accompany your registration form. There is no additional charge for the Level II Certificate.

Level I Certificate:
To earn a Level I certificate, students must complete the following courses: Level II Certificate:
Students wishing to earn a Level II Certificate must complete the requirements of the Level I Certificate above with the additional course in grant writing, NOTE: Students can enroll in any of the courses offered without being in the certification program. However, certificates will only be granted to those who have enrolled in the program. Courses are priced individually, see current catalog for registration fees.
The University of South Alabama reserves the right to cancel any course for which there is not sufficient enrollment. Should a course be canceled after you enroll, you may transfer to another class or receive a full refund. Decisions to cancel a course, based on enrollment, are made three business days prior to the course start date, see course description for specific cancellation details. Failure to attend classes does not constitute withdrawal. Decisions to cancel your registration can be made by calling, faxing or emailing our department and must be received by 5 p.m. at least three business days prior to the start of your class. Refund requests received after this will not be granted.
