Mission Statement

Our mission is to develop, promote, and deliver high quality, non-credit programs leading to certificates in professional disciplines and to award continuing professional education credits to selected professions.

These non-credit programs are geared for those looking for professional development, continuing education, and lifelong learning.

Our programs are in high demand fields and many can be completed in 3-6 months and open new opportunities for job growth or career change. Many of these programs will prepare students to sit for national certification exams which will increase hiring potential.

We regret to inform you that as of Thursday, April 13, 2017, we are no longer processing VA benefits for our non-credit programs.
