EM Professional Development Series

Professional development programs can give you the chance to expand your professional skills while giving you exposure to other aspects of your chosen field. Read on to learn more about professional development.

Professional development refers to the continued training and education of an individual in regards to his or her career. The goal of professional development is to keep you up-to-date on current trends as well as help you develop new skills for the purpose of advancement in the field.

Some professions actually require professional development in order to renew certification or licensure and ensure employees are up to standard. However, you can typically pursue professional development on your own through programs offered by educational institutions, professional organizations, or even your own employer.​
