The Supervisory Leadership Principles Certificate is recommended for UCLA staff and faculty who are:

  • relatively new to supervision
  • longer-term supervisors wanting to update, build on, or reinforce their skills and knowledge
  • non-supervisors who aspire to supervisory positions.

Requirements: the Supervisory Leadership Principles Certificate is earned by successful completion of 11 courses – 8 required plus 3 electives. The only sequence recommendation is to begin with the classes Introduction to Supervision and Supervisory Principles


The live courses in the series are highly participative – attendees interact with the facilitator and each other in discussions and activities in large-group and small-group/breakout settings. 

The self-paced courses in the series leverage e-learning and other online content as well as interaction with the participant’s own team members, their supervisor, and other colleagues in order to complete the coursework.

All of the courses which are part of this certificate series are also available to be taken individually without pursuing a certificate.
