Companies who enroll in our Corporate Advantage Program will be eligible for a group discount off the cost of each course. A minimum of eight students must be enrolled to create a cohort. We understand that many of our students have previous education and/or work experience, and we want to recognize their hard work and dedication. Fisher s Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Program evaluates training and learning that occurs outside the traditional classroom for college credit. Our Degree Completion Program (DCP) allows students to earn credentials for courses taken at another accredited school. Professional Development Workshops Professional Development Workshops are specifically designed to meet the needs of your organization and can range in a variety of topics. Where do you want your business to be in five years? What skills do your employees need to strengthen to get there? Creating a niche workshop will give your company the boost it needs towards a successful future. To run a Professional Development Workshop there must be a minimum of ten employees. The workshop can be delivered over the course of a week or in a more intensive format of your choice. A certificate will be provided to each employee when the workshop is completed.
