The nature of education is such that it must constantly evolve to meet ever-changing needs. Red River College’s newest program, the Advanced Certificate in Project Leadership, aims to take the already successful Project Management program to the next level.

“More and more credentials are being sought to recognize or benchmark people’s experience and knowledge in the field, and that demand is coming from industry,” says Debra Wutke, Vice-President of the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Manitoba chapter, and Program Manager of Business and Management for RRC’s School of Continuing Education.

As Wutke explains, most people don’t start out as project managers, but gradually take on project management roles over the course of their careers. RRC’s Project Management program can help people learn to manage projects at any stage (and in any business), but project management is only one piece of an organization’s pie.

“When you get a certificate in Program Management, you’re more at the working level. Now we need people who [can] step up to take that leadership role,” says Juanita Desouza-Huletey, Manager of Application Services for the Workers Compensations Board, and an instructor at RRC.

Design instructor earns Pinnacle Award for furniture series commissioned by Palliser

January 28, 2016

James CulletonOur congratulations to Continuing Education instructor James Culleton, who recently received a prestigious Pinnacle Award from the American Society of Furniture designers.

Culleton, who teaches Graphic Design and Manual Writing and Design classes at RRC, was one of 16 designers from across North America to be recognized by the organization. He won in the motion upholstery category for the M1 series he designed for Palliser Furniture, where he’s served as design director for almost 15 years.

Culleton first got involved with RRC through his position at Palliser, launching an ongoing partnership with the College’s Residential Decorating program by enlisting students to design a trade show booth for Palliser.

He says the most interesting part of his job as an instructor is teaching students to problem-solve visually, noting he’s fascinated by the range of people who take evening classes at RRC.

Learn more about Culleton’s experiences as an instructor, and find out where in Winnipeg you can see some of his more notable designs.
