Becoming a Certified

This Course Was Made with Busy Parks & Recreation Professionals in Mind...

Does this sound like you?

  • You’ve been meaning to study for the exam, but get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information in other study guides and books
  • You’re constantly on-the-go. I  need a study guide that I can access wherever I am.
  • You don’t always learn best by reading. Sometimes you’d prefer to listen or watch instead.
  • My exam is coming up quickly, and you need an affordable, accessible program to walk you through the only most important content

Here's What You Get:

This course covers four main sections: human resources, programming, finance, and operations. I have organized all of the content into a format that is easy to understand and digest. 

Each section includes the following:

  • The written content organized in text form, for you to absorb at your own pace

  • An audio version so that you can listen to the material at work, in your car, or on-the-go.

  • Bonus: Links to flashcards and quizzes that can help you learn the material on your own.
