Participants are encouraged to bring relevant challenges as we troubleshoot together.

Who should attend?

  • Volunteer managers interested in detailed instruction about how to implement a volunteer program.
  • CNM Members working toward a Volunteer Management Certificate.

Q&A for the Volunteer Program Management Certificate

The requirements for each certificate are different. See below for details about the Volunteer Program Management Certificate.

How do I sign up for this certificate?

To sign up, register for the Certificate: Volunteer Program Management Part 1, which automatically signs you up for the three core classes (part 1, part 2 and part 3). This enrolls you in the certificate; however, the certificate is not completed until you sign up for three additional elective courses.

At this point you will be enrolled in the Volunteer Program Management Certificate; however, it is your choice to finish the certificate and take the other electives. Participants are disenrolled from a certificate if it is not completed within one year of the first certificate class taken.

Can I take my elective courses before I finish my three core courses?

Yes. You can take the electives at anytime. However, we do recommend to begin elective courses after attending at least Volunteer Program Management: Part 1 in order to have a strong foundational understanding.

Can I just take one of the core classes? I only want to attend Volunteer Program Management: Part 1.

No. All core classes must be taken together.


I took one of the courses in the certificate last year. Does it count for the certificate this year?

Courses taken in 2019 may be applied to the certificates. Courses taken before 2019 may not be applied to the certificates.
