Learn and Work in Utah at SUU

Learn and Work

Southern Utah University’s Professional Development & Leadership program is proud to be part of the "Learn & Work In Utah" outreach and education initiative designed to provide training for workers displaced due to COVID-19.

The following certificate programs are offered at no cost to legal residents of Utah who are unemployed or underemployed due to COVID-19. This free training is available through the federal CARES Act funds for short-term training.

All certificates offered through this program are offered online with deadlines set by the instructor. This gives you the flexibility to work at your own pace to boost your resume and lift your career.

The “Learn & Work In Utah” initiative was launched by the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED) and its Talent Ready Utah team, in partnership with the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE).
