Some are also PACE master’s students, and some work for companies such as Standard or Nike and use this education to better their skills and understanding of adult education and how it relates to training in the workforce.

Also recognized were the first two professionals to become CPLP (Certified Professional in Learning & Performance) certified after taking PSU’s CPLP exam prep course and Work Product Coaching group.  Shelby Gramling and Lucas McQuillan both received this nationally recognized certification through ASTD this spring after completion of the two courses with our CPLP certified instructor, Dan Vetter.

During the graduation event, GSE Dean Randy Hitz stressed the importance of continued education in a world that changes in unpredictable ways over the course of our careers. Several instructors spoke about the individual talents of their students, sharing personal stories that indicated just how close-knit T&D program participants can become.

The evening closed with graduating student comments, where students told story after story of how their courses and instructors influenced their lives, both professionally and personally. In all, the event was a touching acknowledgement of the hard work and collaboration these students put in during their time at PSU.
