What is Continuing Education anyway?

Continuing Education is an opportunity to obtain valuable knowledge and skills for personal enrichment and career enhancement.

Unlike for-credit learning, Continuing Education encompasses noncredit courses, therefore classes do not count toward a degree. However, many Continuing Education courses prepare you for industry-recognized licensure and certifications. Successful completion of these courses earns continuing education units (CEUs) for the student. Whether you want better job opportunities or you’re looking to try something new, there is sure to be a Continuing Education course for you.


Payment Plans

Trident Tech Continuing Education students can now spread out the cost of their education with a new Payment Plan available for all programs costing $800 or more. The Payment Plan options are available through a partnership with Nelnet Inc., a company that has helped millions of students pay for education at thousands of schools. Learn more!
