Continuing Education

The continuing education division provides a wide variety of professional development and personal enrichment courses designed to upgrade and strengthen job skills.

Seminars, non-credit courses and workshops, as well as credit courses and certificate programs tailored to meet the needs of employees in business, industry and government agencies are offered both on- and off-campus.

Courses meet during the day and evening, and some Saturday courses are available.  Instructors are professionals who have the combination of current expertise in their topic area and experience teaching adults.

The Continuing Education Credit

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded for non-credit courses.  The CEU recognizes individual and institutional participation in non-traditional studies and special activities.  The CEU meets the need for uniformity in the planning and educational experiences for technical and professional people to improve their competency and skill levels through staff development.  One CEU is awarded for each ten hours of satisfactorily completed course hours.

Fees, Insurance & Policies

The costs of continuing education/contract training offerings are based upon the level of customization, enrollment and the cost of the training materials.  Insurance may also be required depending on the nature of the course.
