Take Jennifer Kelly (pictured above). Although she lives in St. John's, Nfld., she chose to complete her Curriculum Development and Instructional Design Extension Certificate through online learning at Mount Royal. The certificate provided critical knowledge and skills that helped the double degree holder break into her chosen industry. "I literally owe my career to Mount Royal University," she says. "From start to finish, the experience was exceptional."

Or Mike Clermont. The Calgarian completed 90% of the courses in our Supply Chain Management Extension Certificate online over three years. "It made my life easier. Doing one class at time helped me focus in on that one class," he recalls. "Online learning was my saving grace."

Then there's Sherrilyn Lavoie, a licensed practical nurse from Westlock, Alta. She's implementing the knowledge she gained in Mount Royal's Advanced Topics in Dementia Care Extension Certificate for the benefit of her community. "I loved the courses. I came out wanting to do more. It gave me strategies and inspiration to start something in my small community," Lavoie says.

  • Academic courses offered online; practical components to be carried out in approved locations.
