The Credential: It's About Credibility

The UNA Credential is the most effective way to build internal capacity and external credibility for your organization. You'll leave equipped with the knowledge, skills, and resources you need to guide your organization in nine essential disciplines. Your work makes life better. Our job is to help you work better. 

You'll Receive

  • Two days of interactive training focused on your need for skills and knowledge—distilled to include the most important concepts to make the most of your time
  • A Consultation with our Subject-Matter-Expert to guide you in applying the course material to your nonprofit
  • Ongoing coaching to help you apply best-practices at your organization
  • A Badge to formally recognize your implementation of Credential requirements

We offer each course once per calendar year. Please visit our Training and Events Calendar for more details. All 2024 training sessions and consultations will be held online.
