A few participants from previous Star Achievement Series classes.

"Every person [has] the potential to be a star performer at work. Star performers are professionals who continually seek new ways of doing things, create better techniques to improve their performance, and realize that they are on a journey that never ends. They know that who they are today is not all they are capable of becoming"-Joan Burge. This certification builds on the skill, attitude, teamwork and strategy fundamentals that result in increased productivity and job satisfaction among office professionals.

Response to levels 1 and 2 of the Star Achievement Series has been outstanding at the Health Science Center with over 90 employees earning the certification in one or both levels.
