PURPOSE:  In order to promote economic development, the College offers a comprehensive schedule of non-credit program seminars and courses, customized training, consulting services, and multi-year apprenticeship training.

    The Division of Education staff schedules and manages seminars, courses, workshops and programs offered by the College, or through co-sponsorships with external organizations.
    The college awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to participants who successfully complete qualifying programs on the basis of one CEU for every ten contact hours of instruction. These units are recorded to one decimal point. Thus, a qualifying non-credit program meeting for a total of twelve hours earns 1.2 CEUs for the participant. CEUs carry no credit toward degree/diploma programs and are separate and distinct from the College's curricular programs. The recording of CEUs does, however, provide a quantifiable, permanent record of achievement and is an indication of the knowledge and skills acquired by attending such programs.
    In order to qualify for CEUs, the program must meet the following criteria:
    1. Each activity is planned in response to educational needs, which have been identified for a target audience.
    2. Each activity has clear and concise written statements of intended learning outcomes.
    3. Qualified instructional personnel are involved in planning and conducting each activity.
    4. Content and instructional methods are appropriate for the intended learning outcomes.
    5. Participants must demonstrate their attainment of the learning outcomes.
    6. Each learning activity is evaluated by the participants.
    7. The sponsor has an identifiable unit, group, or individual with clearly defined responsibilities for developing and administering learning activities.
    8. The sponsor has a review process in operation that ensures the CEU criteria are met.
    9. The sponsor maintains a complete record of each individual's participation in accordance with the retention schedule established by the Department of Archives and History.
    10. The sponsor provides an appropriate learning environment and support services.
    Each non-credit program should recover its direct and indirect costs (to include materials, instruction, advertising, and administrative/internal overhead). These costs shall come from registration fees, grants, and/or third party payments. Payment to adjunct instructors and consultants shall be by contracts executed in advance of the respective program(s). Adjunct payrates shall be in accordance with College procedure.
