Becoming a member of a professional association is an essential part of being competitive in today’s economy.  Professional associations provide standards for professionals within the same industry or business line. Fanshawe College Part-Time Studies has collaborated with many professional associations to offer courses that allow you to gain the progressive requirements towards your own professional certification or designation.

As a member of a professional association, you become a member of a special community.  For example, the human resources (HR) community is quite diverse, but there is something that all members have in common and that is a passion for HR.  Becoming a member of your professional association is the best way to connect with others that share your same passion.
