PDI and Service Nation Offer Certification, Degree Completion Programs

PDI has joined forces with the largest residential contracting business alliance in the world – Service Nation – to create a unique certification and/or university degree completion package designed to help professionals excel on the job.

“Service Nation is always looking for ways to provide value for our members, and this program may be the best return on investment we have ever created,” said Matt Michel, President of Service Nation.

Known as the Service Nation School of Business, this innovative program is now enrolling participants for classes offered live at the University of North Texas in Denton, one Friday and Saturday per month.  For those not in the Dallas or Fort Worth metroplex, these classes may be accessed online, which allows residential contracting employees to continue earning a living while focusing on course work.

“One of the major challenges of our contractor members face is the ability to recruit and retain top talent in their companies.  The Service Nation School of Business allows them to recruit young adults who may desire to earn a college degree, but who also want to work and avoid amassing significant college debt.  The program also helps retain talent by offering a career path to potential applicants as well as loyal employees,” said Michel.

Going live in September are “Cultivate Your Leadership,” from the leadership curriculum, and “Advertising & Media Strategy,” from the sales and marketing curriculum.  Coming soon will be classes in human resources, finance and operations.

Courses may be fully transferable via the Bachelor’s in Applied Arts and Sciences degree program at the University of North Texas and other universities.  Visit the Service Nation School of Business tab under our industry navigation tool to learn more about this program.
