Lockheed Martin Professional Development Programs
Lockheed Martin is a company that puts a premium on professional development for its employees. Company leaders know that they cannot continue to compete and succeed in today's business marketplace without the dedication and hard work of many highly skilled professionals. In order to help personnel develop and maintain a high level of expertise, Lockheed Martin has instituted several initiatives as part of its "Total Value" career proposition. These offerings are designed to help employees pursue executive education and develop skills that will improve workplace performance.
Tuition Reimbursement for Professional Development Courses
In addition to Lockheed Martin's own training programs - including classes offered through the Institute for Leadership Excellence and online learning management system - the company offers a Tuition Reimbursement Program to support employees who wish to pursue professional development courses from leading educational institutions around the country.
High-quality professional development programs are of great benefit to Lockheed Martin employees as well as to the company as a whole. Employees who participate in the Tuition Reimbursement Program are able to enhance their skills and knowledge, thereby contributing greatly to the success of the company while increasing their own professional worth. This can lead to greater opportunities for advancement within the company and correspondingly higher compensation - both excellent reasons to invest time and effort in professional development.
Professional Development in Project Management and PMI Certification
For employees who would like to take advantage of the Lockheed Martin Tuition Reimbursement Program to develop valuable new skills, the field of project management provides excellent opportunities for professional development and personal growth. Because the success of company initiatives is closely tied to the abilities of its project managers, Lockheed Martin may provide tuition support for employees who pursue professional development courses in project management from respected institutions like Villanova University. Those who successfully complete a project management training program may choose to further enhance their credentials by earning one of the industry certifications available from the Project Management Institute (PMI®).
