Academies are developed to help meet the noncredit educational needs of groups of employees or members of organizations. Each academy contains a lineup of online courses that have been selected to meet the specific needs of that particular group. The courses offered are chosen and often developed by the employers or organizational leaders to provide their professionals with the necessary skills to succeed.

Upon completion of a course, participants will receive a certificate of completion from Iowa State University that can be proudly displayed and provide needed credentials for career advancement.

For more information or to learn how we can help your group develop an online academy, contact Iowa State University Registration Services at 515-294-6222 or
