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 (CEU's) 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.
