Customized Training and Corporate Development

Since 1984, Corporate and Professional Development (CPD) has partnered with business and industry to provide effective training solutions and industrial services.  To date, over 1000 companies have benefited by taking advantage of the skills and facilities that CPD offers.

CPD develops and administers real-world, practical talent and organization development solutions to form a stronger, more capable work force.




CPD's affiliation with Ferris State University and the College of Engineering Technology enables access to Faculty experts and options to train in CET's laboratories and classrooms.  We provide the same excellence in business, health, and science services. 


Customized training can be delivered in a manner most appropriate for our clients; on site, on campus, on-line, or other creative formats.  Content can range from fundamental to the most cutting edge.


More than just courses.  Job task analysis provided by CPD serves as a foundation for building continuous improvement and employee advancement strategies.  Well defined job skills map a route for employee development and building a strong more capable work force.  CPD can also develop and facilitate assessments for both knowledge and skills. 


Credentials such as certificates of completion or continuing education units (CEU's) can be provided.  Also, CPD's affiliation with Ferris enables the possibility of awarding college credit.
