Continuing Education

This page contains a list of certificates that I have earned through non-degree online and in-person programs from providers such as the Michigan State Police, FEMA, Microsoft’s MVA, SkillPort, and more.

There are cases,  such as ICS 100,  where it is listed multiple times.   The multiple listing is because some classes are core requirements in other certifications.
