Career Management Professional Program

To ensure certificates are kept current with relevant, up-to-date information, CMPP students completing a full certificate must complete all coursework within 2 years of the starting the program. 

Students who are unable to complete all coursework within the 2-year period are no longer eligible to receive their CMPP certificate from Yorkville University; however, they are welcome to continue taking individual courses at their own pace for professional development. All students, whether completing a full certificate or taking individual courses with Life Strategies Ltd., are eligible to receive course transcripts as documentation of successful course completion. Transcripts are issued upon request and carry both Life Strategies Ltd. and Yorkville’s logos. The first transcript is free of charge; however, multiple requests will result in a small fee.

Alternatively, students may apply for a certificate deadline extension. To do so, they must make a formal application to Life Strategies Ltd. and pay the certificate extension application fee ($50.00) to cover the costs of reviewing course plans and identifying which courses may be challenged and which must be taken again. Click here for the official Certificate Extension Application Form; submission of this form is required at least one month prior to the 2-year deadline. We strongly recommend early applications so our student advisor can review the application and assist in course planning. Certificates can only be extended for 3 additional months beyond the original certificate expiry date. Submission of an application for certificate extension does not guarantee an extension will be granted. Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis

Other LearnOnline Programs

For the remainder of the LearnOnline programs, Life Strategies will provide students with one certificate free of charge at program completion. Reprints of program certificates can be issued upon special request; however, a nominal fee of $10.00 (plus tax) per certificate will apply. Payment can be made via our Online Store

All certificates will be issued via email unless otherwise requested.
