“The Management Skills for Supervisors program in the University of Fraser Valley Continuing Education program helped me earn a Leadership position in the Health Informatics department in Fraser Health.  I find the course material to be very applicable to today’s work environment.  The instructors provided the education that I needed to transition from the staff level to the management level.” ~ Len Hurley, 2012 Graduate
