There are several topics that qualify as continuing education options for past participants of the AGTS Supervisor's Academy. Each carries a sizable discount for graduates.

  • Critical Thinking
  • Training in critical thinking is hard to find, but it's a competency that employers say is essential to individual and organizational success. Even if you are a skilled critical thinker, this class will give you ideas on how to bring others along. The program received a 5.0 the last time it ran.

  • Effective Problem Solving and Decision Making
  • This class was rated a 4.83 the last time out. It's another one of the "must haves" that we just couldn't fit into the core Academy. It covers skills essential to management and team effectiveness.

  • Leading Meetings
  • This is a "must have" for all supervisors. It really should be a part of the core academy, but we're already at 72 hours! The class received a 4.96 the last time out.

  • Presentation Skills
  • If you do any kind of speaking in front of groups--informal or formal--this program will enhance your public-speaking effectiveness. The class was rated 5.0 when it ran last season.

  • Project Management
  • You'd be surprised how many activities qualify as a "project" and how even the most simple project can be better managed for greater effect. The most recent offering of this two-day introductory program received a 5.0 on our 5-point scale. Participant comments included: "I gained extensive insight into what all is involved in managing a project," and "Good ideas, good information!"

  • Statistics Made Easy
  • We hold this his hard-to-find class once a year when the instructor is in town. It was rated a 4.92 last year. Typical participant comments include: "Real world examples made easy!" and "Statistics really can be easy when presented in an easy-to-understand way."
