Training & Outreach

The U.Va. Training and Outreach team works to develop and deliver training programs designed to ensure that all employees with business responsibilities are confident in their ability to make decisions affecting the University’s financial system.


The University Business Professional Development Program

A committee of administrative process leaders at the University met in March 2006 with the goal to create a development program to ensure excellence in the University business and administrative workforce. Our program includes levels of certification built to familiarize employees with critical University business policies and practices. We strive to develop curricula by creating a coordinated approach for building business acumen throughout the University; from the most basic financial entries to supporting strategic business decisions.

Beginning in January 2007, the program's basic courses have been required for access to new responsibilities in the Integrated System financial applications and for BPDP certifications.

Completion of both basic and intermediate courses (since January 2007) provides the attendee with a Business Professional Intermediate Certification.

To learn more about the Business Professional Development Program and courses, please visit our BPDP program website.
