If you need to enhance existing work skills, or learn new skills in order to perform better on the job, or pass required courses to maintain licensure, Continuing Education non-credit courses are right for you.

Designed primarily for the non-degree seeking student, Continuing Education courses produce and enrich professional growth. These courses are generally short in duration, and upon successful course completion learners are awarded CEUs (continuing education units).
