Frequently Asked Questions
Will I earn a credential?
Students who complete this course and pass a final exam will earn a Digital Credential in Fundraising Event Management. Learn more about our Digital Credentials.
How does the course work?
Participants will log into our private Learning Management System, where each week approximately 2 hours of new lesson content will be released. Lesson content will usually be in video format, broken into digestible chapters of approximately 5-10 minutes each, and may be supplemented with PDFs or links to external articles. The lessons may be viewed at any time once they are released, and you can complete the lesson videos at your own pace. Short quizzes and assignments may be given to help reinforce learning outcomes.
What if I'm busy one week and can't get to the material?
At the end of this course, we provide participants an additional four weeks to catch up if they were unavailable for any portion of the course (hey, we know planners are busy). New lessons will be released each Monday at 7:00 pm EST, and can be viewed at any time thereafter.
When/how can I contact the instructor during the course?
The instructor will be available to answer questions and provide feedback at set times each week. Outside of those hours, the instructor will make every effort to respond to emails within two business days. (Keep in mind our instructors are subject matter experts who are actively working on events.)
