A Note from the Director
This year the Professional Nonprofit Management Certificate Program has forged new partnerships with other professional nonprofit support organizations. Our new partners include:
These partnerships afford Certificate students the ability to apply CRC and CNA sponsored trainings to FLC's 50-hour PNMCP Certificate (online trainings are excluded, and there is a 6-hour maximum lifetime award). All you have to do is keep track of your hours (CE will provide you with a form to do this) and attach a copy of the flyer, email, or web information of the training for verification.
If you attended the 2014 Rural Philanthropy Days in Pagosa Springs, you can apply 4 hours for the conference (if you attended every day) and 1 hour for the CRC capacity building pre-training, if you attended. Other CRC and CNA trainings are awarded 1 hour PNMCP for approximately 3 hours of training (this is not an hour-for-hour award).
