The Stamford Innovation Center is offering a social media course this summer that culminates in a certification.
Classes will take place 6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursdays, from July 16 to Aug. 6. A different instructor will lead each class, sharing best practices and walking participants through steps necessary to build a social media presence. The program was developed in partnership with The Shippan Institute, a Stamford-based management training firm.
