Great course. Learned alot!

Maureen Riley, Change Management, 2022

Change Management Course Overview

Our change management certification course teaches students how to develop practical solutions for effectively implementing change in the workplace. Students learn to address staff concerns and foster cooperation through best practices. By using change management techniques, students will learn how to facilitate smooth transitions in the workplace while maintaining morale.

Managing changes in an organization is about more than just rules. They're about individuals. Most businesses introduce large adjustments to improve procedures, accommodate changes, or comply with new laws on a regular basis. Managers can make decisions too quickly, without thinking about how the change would affect their employees. Change management experts help organizations think about change on a personal, corporate, and national level by taking a people-first approach.

This change management course is available to students from anywhere in the world who have internet access. This digital course certification is delivered through our live online format, which means students can easily integrate it into their busy schedules. The course is part-time, so students can easily balance it with other commitments.

For BC Realtors, attending this course can be counted towards Self-Directed PDP Hours.
