Change Management Professional Certification

Acuity Institute’s Change Management Certification has been designed to provide Change Leaders running organizational projects with the tools and skills to initiate change in a project management environment.

Many initiatives fail because people do not know where to start or how to sustain change. Our online Change Management certification course delivers best practices for both tactical and behavioral elements of change from leading experts in a practical and simple way. It demystifies change by providing students with a unique interactive Change Management Toolkit which leads students through all phases of the Change Management process.

Course description

While there are numerous approaches to Change Management, Acuity’s Change Management Program encompasses the general industry standard of evaluating the organization’s issue/problem, initiating action to make change, planning the change while encouraging stakeholder buy-in, executing the plans while being flexible to the changing landscape, and how to sustain the change and make it “stick” so that the organization truly gains benefits of the change.

Unlike other online change management courses, learners in Acuity’s Change Management Program will also learn the process of change through a simulated project in which they can practice the top skills of Change Leaders. In addition, learners are provided Acuity’s Change Management Toolkit which enables them with the tools to immediately make a positive Change Management impact within their organization.

Acuity Institute’s courses are conducted online and use a multi-media format that includes audio from experts, examples of successful performance improvement, interactive simulations and quizzes, and the most current and robust tools and techniques available. This is a “self-paced” online course and can be accessed at any time—and—anywhere, which provides the most flexibility in completing the course. Learners have three months to complete the course. When dedicating around 5 hours per week, the average learner completes the course in approximately 6 weeks.

Simulated Projects

At Acuity Institute, we recognize that not every individual has the opportunity to complete an actual project while completing training; therefore, we have created real world simulated projects that takes students from the beginning to the end of a problem and solution using the methodology trained in the course. The simulated project helps to build the student’s understanding of the concepts taught in training and provides practical application of the tools and methodology. Students complete the course better prepared to apply what they have learned in the real world.

The simulation is based on a hypothetical company that faces many of the same problems companies are dealing with today. Students complete challenging exercises and tollgate weviews which build on previously learned tools and concepts taught in training. When complete, students have a significant perspective on what true business improvement means and a tangible “project story” that they can utilize throughout their process improvement journey.

There is no comparison for these simulations in the marketplace today. No other provider offers a more comprehensive project simulation such as ours which includes numerous project deliverables, challenging analysis, and project tollgate reviews.


For many of Acuity’s courses, we have assembled a Toolkit, which contains a complete, user-friendly set of the templates included in the course. The toolkit assists practitioners in keeping focused on their project work and not creating “templates”. For ease of use, the templates can be downloaded directly to your computer and are yours to keep and utilize in future projects. The templates have been developed in common formats (MS Word, MS Excel or MS PowerPoint).
