Ever since Paul Ferguson decided to take his first course at JIBC in 2014, he hasn’t stopped learning. In June 2015, he graduated with JIBC’s Associate Certificate in Leadership and Conflict Resolution, and he is furthering his education to complete the Certificate in Applied Leadership.

“I enjoyed the courses so much, I just want to continue,” he said. “I didn’t stop and I fully intend to continue and come back to learn more.”

An important component of the Certificate in Applied Leadership is a new Leadership Simulation Capstone course, which Paul completed in the spring. This immersive learning experience is unique for leadership training programs. Offered only at JIBC, the capstone courses gives students the opportunity to apply, in real-time, the leadership theory and skills they’ve gained.
