Professional Development Certificate Programs

Certificate Program Update: 

Due to the continued threat of the COVID-19 virus, all certificate program courses have been suspended until January 2021. If you're currently enrolled in one of the professional certificate programs, please know that the 2-year time limit will be adjusted to reflect the limitation in the course offerings and will be given additional time to complete the program. EOD is not currently taking new applications at this time. 

If you have any questions on your progress or specific questions on when sessions will resume, please contact Ashley Cooper at aamyers@valdosta.edu. Thank you for your continued flexibility and patience as we work to redesign the sessions to be facilitated successfully in an online format.
