Continuing Education

Continuing Education is a division of C3 (Department of Continuing, Corporate, and Community Education).

We offer specific certificate programs as well as professional skills development including industry specific continuing education credentials. Our convenient class times and locations allow students to work their class schedule around work and family time. The department creates three schedules a year; summer, fall and spring.
