The project involves an opportunity for candidates to apply the knowledge, skills, and behaviors they gain from their respective programs.

To complete the Signature Project Stage 1, candidates extract information from their Major Assignments 1, 2, and 3 to create the Signature Project Stage 1 which includes Chapters 1, 2, and 3, References, and Appendices. The Signature Project Stage 1 should include the following:
