Understanding Continuing Education and Training
Continuing education usually refers to any form of post high school education, used to earn additional certification or as a requirement to maintain a professional license. This form of education is entirely meant for individuals who already have degrees.
Continuing education can take the form of online degree or certificate courses, seminars, conferences, workshops or self-guided study. Unlike other types of education, continuing education has no specific format or duration. Some programs may take a day while others span several weeks or months.
Students pursuing continuing education for personal advancement usually do not receive college credits as the courses are not considered part of the formal training. Attending a conference that is open to the public, for example, does not give you any education credits.
Continuing education programs enable people who have already earned a college level degree to pursue additional education or advanced training. google_ad_channel = "7940249670, " + AB_cat_channel + AB_unit_channel; google_language = "en"; google_ad_region = 'test';
