UC People Management Certificate

The UC Systemwide People Management Series and Certificate is a program for all People Managers consisting of Core and Elective Courses, which include local and systemwide programs and eCourses, as well as in-person learning experiences. The certificate, recommended for all People Managers and those aspiring to a career in people management, builds on coursework that may have already been completed. The following topics are included in the People Management Series and Certificate: Performance Management, Managing Implicit Bias, Managing People, Administration & Operations, Change Management and Communications.

The benefits of the program include:

  • Establishing baseline people management skills
  • Building on or refreshing current knowledge base
  • Preparing participants for potential promotions or future leadership positions
  • Providing flexibility to complete the program with all online courses or a combination of online and in-person courses.

A recent addition is the UC Managing Implicit Bias Series, which is made up of six eCourses designed to increase awareness of implicit bias and reduce its impact at the University. The Series further reinforces the University’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a UC People Manager, being aware of implicit bias and how it impacts the way we work and interact with others is especially important. These courses have been added to the People Management Series Certificate as Core Requirements.

In order to obtain a People Management Certificate, participants will need to complete all 10 Core Courses and 4 Elective Courses (one from each competency). UC People Management eCourses and UCLA onsite elective courses are available through the UC Learning Center. And be sure to visit for the elective eCourses.

Supervisors and managers are encouraged to consider the eCourses as a tool for ongoing development and ask them to share this information with their staff.
