Center For Training & Development

The Center for Training and Professional Development (CTPD) was established to institutionalize a university-wide continuing training and development program for its academic and non-academic personnel, students and other stakeholders (Urdaneta City University [UCU] Charter, 2021; University Code, 2021).
Its added mission is “to keep the same people abreast with the continuing changes and challenges in the industry of learning.” Training and development refer to the formal ongoing efforts that are made within organizations to improve the performance and self-fulfillment of employees through a variety of educational methods and programs (Jacob, 2003).
Hence, the university offers continual learning through the CTPD to promote employees’ professional growth resulting to highly skilled work force that can ensure a long-term organizational success.
