About Merit Career Development


Merit Career Development has helped thousands of people around the world increase their knowledge, improve their skills, and enrich their lives through tailored training.


Our interactive learning “experiences” will unleash the power of your talent using modern adult instructional techniques that are validated through academic research. We offer certifications programs, workshops, lectures and coaching on project management, leadership, management and communications along with HIPAA and HITECH compliance training.


Every member of our team has a love of learning. We share this value not just in the courses that we design and deliver, but also in the organizations we support including: The World Wildlife Fund, The Boy Scouts of America, The International Society for Performance Improvement, and Habitat for Humanity. One of our own ongoing projects is to recycle discarded schoolbooks for the creation of school libraries in the African nation of Liberia.


At Merit we pride ourselves in offering customized solutions to fit your organization’s needs. We provide live instruction on your site, Virtual Instructor Led Synchronous Training (VILT), and web-based training for 24/7 access. We also offer a blended delivery method to best suit your needs.
