A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

I took this class to investigate the possibility of a nonprofit. This class has helped clear the cobwebs and direct my thoughts. I feel I now have a much better understanding and am ready to move forward with transferring my dream into reality. This class has been an excellent resource. Thank you.
This class has been very informative. Before I enrolled in this class, I had absolutely no idea what a nonprofit was and how to start one (really!). I now have written my articles of incorporation and bylaws, and have begun my search for board members using the criteria that you provided. Thanks a bunch!
This class has given me the instruction and resources necessary to get started and thanks to your responses and direction to my assignments, that extra boost of confidence I'm sure I needed. I no longer "think" I can...I "know" I can. I'm looking forward to the next course. Thank you!
This course really helped me as I was recently hired as media coordinator for an agency that helps low income disabled receive free medical equipment such as power chairs, wheelchair and walkers. I attended my first strategic planning meeting and this course guided me through each step. Thanks for such a well written course.
This class was beyond what I could ever have imagined. I learned more in these last six weeks then any one semester in college. I can use what I learned immediately or if I wait a few years, this information will still be useful. Instructor was helpful, friendly and very knowledgable. I would definitley recommend the instructor and the class. I learned a lot! Thank you!
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. This was my third and final class to complete my certification with this instructor. I felt she made it fun and something I looked forward to. This was my first time trying online courses and I thought going into it that it would be boring, but this one certainly was not. I learned so much and feel like I can talk the lingo now!
I have not taken a course in over three decades. I find that the style and format of this course is excellent. The instructor was insightful and gave me alternatives to think about.
Excellent class! Thanks for helping to me stretch my imagination and preparing us for this new adventure into starting a nonprofit.
The course was great and the instructor taught me more than I could ever had imagined.
Great class! I would have missed so many steps had I not taken this class. I feel more prepared and my nonprofit has a much better chance at making a difference. I will definitely take another course.
