These lab manager training courses are designed to provide the specific knowledge needed to become proficient at a wide range of different management and leadership activities required from most lab managers. Individual lab manager courses are a good alternative to the certificate or category programs for experienced lab managers who need a little training in some specific areas, and want to investigate the courses individually. Each course is available online, containing a lecture video, supporting slides, activities to practice the skills, interactive elements, and a short quiz at the end.
Note: Each course is also included in full certificate programs and should be purchased as part of a certificate program if your goal is to receive a certification.

This has been wonderful training and development to prepare me for advancement. Scott provided a good outline of steps to take to improve oneself as a manager and leader. And yes, I absolutely got the promotion just two weeks ago! I am now the assistant manager. Thanks Scott and Lab Manager Academy!

The day after I completed the program, we had a personnel issue in which I had to include our administrators, advisors, and sports staff. I was able to use my new management skills from the Academy in a real-life situation and come up with an appropriate course of action.

I enjoyed the length of each course and that I could easily schedule them into my work calendar when it suited me best. Each year during our reviews, staff are required to show management how we continue to improve ourselves through professional development. These courses fit perfectly into my professional development plans.
