Open Enrollment Programs

Open enrollment programs are professional development programs open to the public.  OPED's open enrollment programs are designed and offered based on an "industry-vertical strategy", meaning training programs are semi-customized in order to meet specific needs of a particular industry.  Listed below are the current industry verticals OPED is working with:

- Healthcare
- Defense / Aerospace / Government Contracting
- Financial / Banking
- Project Management / IT and Software
- Human Resources (coming soon) 

OPED uses the "Lean Startup" methodology to design and develop open enrollment programs.  Training programs are designed and offered based on requests and needs of professionals in a given industry.  Professionals and executives are involved early in the design and development process to provide feedback before the program is launched.
