The mission of Brigham Young University—founded, supported, and guided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—is to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life. That assistance should provide a period of intensive learning in a stimulating setting where a commitment to excellence is expected and the full realization of human potential is pursued. —BYU Mission and Aims Statement

BYU Professional Development was founded in 2008 under BYU Continuing Education. Since then, the program has added to the university’s long-standing reputation for excellence in service and education.

Our Unique Program

Lifelong Commitment to Excellence

We offer professional development training designed not only to help you pass certification tests but also to help you to succeed throughout your career. Our coaches and mentors will stay with you after the course finishes, often making themselves available to answer questions and help you as your career evolves.

What to Expect

Our courses are instructor-led by world-class experts, with each class customized to meet the specific needs of those present. Rather than lecture from a textbook, we coach you through the steps to master the content of each certification exam so you can pass the test and become a master practitioner. Each course will serve as a reference guide for you throughout your career.

Our unique approach to training assures that you will make an immediate impact on your company. We connect theory with practice, helping you to apply the ideas you learn to the current projects of your company. Our coaches and consultants are industry experts who have several years of experience training professionals. They know what works and are passionate about helping you master the tools, techniques, and practices. We measure the success of our training by your mastery and application of skills.

Designed for the Working Professional

Our courses are designed to fit within the schedule of a working professional. Courses are available weekday evenings and Saturdays at BYU in Provo, in Salt Lake City, and at specific company sites in the USA or worldwide. Our virtual classroom option allows live remote training, enabling you to experience each class as if you were there in person.

An Expanding Reach

While we offer a wide variety of courses, we are also willing to design new programs specific to your company needs.
