General Management and Leadership Certificate Program

This Certificate Program focuses on three core management and leadership competencies: management capability, team leadership, and project management.

Upon completing all three courses, an SAE Certificate of Achievement is awarded, issuing the designated number of Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Upon completing all three courses, a comprehensive certificate is awarded, recognizing completion of the entire certificate program.

The courses do not have to be taken in any specified order, although Managing Engineering and Technical Professionals is a good starting point if it can be scheduled as one's first course. The entire three-course program must be completed in five years.
