for Public Service is proud to offer the Federal Advisor Certificate of Completion program. This program is
designed to provide advisors with a comprehensive view of how to:
Advise students on federal opportunities
Build agency relationships
Promote federal service on campus
This is a great
professional development opportunity for those interested in effectively
providing the latest and greatest information, as well as job search strategies
to students interested in public sector careers.
Requirements and Program Content
To receive a Partnership for Public Service Federal Advisor Certificate of Completion, advisors must demonstrate a commitment to promoting public service opportunities by:
Gaining a command of federal hiring process and opportunities
Demonstrating active promotion of these opportunities on campus
Establishing the capability and commitment to building agency relationships.
To obtain the certificate of completion, each participant must complete all events in the following three areas.
Virtual Federal Advisor
Cost of Trainings
Purchase all events in the three areas required to obtain the Federal Advisor Certificate of Completion for $534.00. If you do not wish to purchase all events, each of the three areas can be purchased individually.
For those pursuing the certificate from the same
school, each advisor must complete the virtual training (separate
registrations) and host the Go Government webinar series in different
semesters. They are permitted to participate jointly in the Federal Advisor
Strategy Package programming for credit towards the certification.
The certificate of completion is valid for four years for each federal advisor.
The period of validity begins upon completion of the last requirement of the
certificate—whether that is the final virtual training, webinar, or component
of the second tier programming. After four years, the participant must attend a
Federal Advisor Training for renewal of the certificate.
It is incumbent upon the advisor to submit for the Federal Advisor Certificate
of Completion by emailing email@example.com at the completion
of the requirements. Upon verification of completion, the participant will then
by mailed a certificate.
With the advent of the new Pathways Programs, the
Partnership is not able to offer retroactive credit towards a certificate for
those who have completed a Federal Advisor Training or the Go Government
webinar series before June 2012.
