Colby-Sawyer College will launch two online certificate programs in January: human resource management and leadership certificate programs. The online certificate programs are available to professionals in the field, to students in community colleges, and to those already working toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree, as well as to interested members of the public.
Each program consists of five courses for a total of 16 college credits. Each course is eight weeks long and delivered completely online. A high school diploma or GED is the prerequisite for acceptance into both programs. Financial aid is available and applications are available at
For more information about the certificate in human resource management, email Sharon Beaudry at

The American Red Cross has launched the Team Red Cross App, which allows people to sign up to help, get an overview on basic tasks and receive notifications about Red Cross disaster volunteer opportunities in their community. Once users download the app and create an account, they learn about different jobs, such as working in a warehouse, handing out supplies or assisting with feeding. When the Red Cross has a need for volunteers, the Team Red Cross App will notify users based on their location. Potential volunteers can instantly accept or decline the volunteer opportunity. The Red Cross is encouraging the public to download the app before a disaster strikes in New Hampshire so volunteers can help immediately.
The app is free and designed for iPhone and Android smart phones and tablets. The Team Red Cross App can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/mobileapps.
