Suggested Sequence of Courses

Regardless of whether you are enrolled in the Grants Management Certificate Program™, you can take a building-block approach to your continuing professional education by selecting the courses you need to tailor an individualized learning program. The suggested sequence of courses in the table below can help you plan your personal training program. For the convenience of students enrolled in the Grants Management Certificate Program™, we have indicated which courses are core () and elective ().

Using the Suggested Sequence of Courses to Customize Your Personal Training Program

Step 1: Determine which group you fit into: Federal, Pass-Through, or Recipient. The Federal group includes employees of agencies that award grants and cooperative agreements. The Pass-Through group includes entities that receive funds and then subaward those funds to other organizations that actually perform the programmatic work. The Recipient group includes organizations that receive funds, either directly from a agency or from a pass-through entity (such as a state agency), and use those funds to perform programmatic work.

Step 2: Review this catalog and select the courses you would like to take.

Step 3: Use the suggested sequence of courses below to determine the best order in which to take the courses you selected. This is the order of courses that will provide you with the maximum benefit. If, for scheduling or other reasons, you cannot take the courses in this order, you will still benefit from taking them. However, taking courses out of order may mean that you receive introductory instruction on a topic after you’ve already had the indepth instruction on that topic in another course.
