At UD Professional and Continuing Studies, we understand the deep impact COVID-19 has created in our region, and we want to do our part to help Delaware and our surrounding region recover as soon as possible. As the region’s leader in workforce training and development, we feel the best way to contribute given the current situation is to leverage our training and development expertise. As a result, I am reaching out to share with you that UD PCS is sponsoring a series of free professional development webinars geared toward professionals who may need to re-enter the workforce post COVID-19. These webinars will be offered once a month, starting in May, and they will run through August.

We hope these webinars can provide a timely resource for many professionals in our region. I have attached a flyer detailing these webinars, and we are asking for your help in sharing this resource with your network.
