Professional Learning Academy

UC Merced partnered with the Merced College Workplace Resource Center to offer the Professional Learning Academy to enhance customer service, communication, and business skills. 

The Professional Learning Academy (also known as Customer Service Academy) has become a valuable community resource that provides training in key areas of customer service and equips participants with skills that can be applied in their work areas. 

See the Professional Learning Academy schedule of classes.

Take all 10 classes and earn a Certificate of Achievement or pick and choose the ones most suited for you. These classes are free for UC Merced faculty and staff, and located at the Merced College Workplace Learning Resource Center, downtown Merced, where there is plenty of free parking.
