Unique to UW Tacoma is the ability to start a certificate with any course in the program - whether it starts Fall Term, Winter Term or Spring Term. You have two years from the start of your first course to complete the certificate program. Upon successful completion of all program requirements, participants earn a Certificate in Contract Management from the University of Washington Tacoma and 105 hours or 10.50 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
