CAPstone Fall 2023

Whether you are expanding your competencies for your current role or are looking to specialize for a new role, CAPstone offers just what you need, right to your home or office! Courses are open to all administrative professionals but spaces are limited to ensure personalized learning, so register early!

While most of the content can be experienced at times convenient to you (asynchronous learning), both specialties require attendance at one live virtual 60-minute session per week (synchronous learning). These sessions create space to connect with your learning community and facilitator for questions, discussion, and engagement for high-level learning.

You’ll also be invited to a Virtual Meet & Greet before launch to get to know the platform, expectations, and your fellow learners and facilitator.

Dexter Allen, MBA, CAP

This course was very informing and engaging. It allowed me to think outside the box and become more involved at work with the information that I was receiving from the facilitator. The information confirmed some of the information that I learned over the years, as well as think of new ideas to incorporate in my daily responsibilities. This course has given me additional confidence in my ability to excel and strive to become a great asset to my organization. I was able to ask any questions and was provided with excellent responses. This course is worth taking and the case studies were a hit.

The final assessment was a real-life situation and how you were going to solve it using the knowledge gained in the past 8 weeks. I have never taken a more hands-on course where you could see how you could see solutions to problems in your current job every week.
