Retool for success with the Retail Management Certificate (RMC) program with the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), Community and Technical College. This certificate is a 30 credit academic program that takes approximately one year to complete. The certificate addresses a need for trained employees in the Alaska retail industry. The curriculum was developed through a collaborative effort between industry leaders and the educators of UAA. Students will complete courses in business writing, math, personal computers, bookkeeping/account, introduction to management, fundamentals of supervision, human relations, introduction to personnel, marketing practices and retailing management. All courses are available on-line.

The RMC program is available to assist people who are TAA eligible, as well as unemployed or under employed. The development of this program was made possible through a federal grant. For more information contact the Retail Management program at 907-786-7609. The website for the Retail Management Certificate program is:

Did you know your TAA training benefits never expire? If you were laid off of a TAA certified company, and you haven’t taken advantage of training benefits, you may be able to take advantage of this great opportunity to upgrade your current skills or learn new ones.
