Credit vs. Continuing Education Courses
Continuing Education courses are noncredit, which means they don't apply towards a degree or diploma. Upon completion, students do receive a Continuing Education Unit, or CEU, which is widely accepted as a recognized standard of professional development, and might be able to earn further certification based on their chosen plan of study.
Available Continuing Education courses
Continuing Education incorporates several options:
- Building and Skilled Trades
- Business and Entrepreneurship
- Creative and Liberal Arts
- Health and Wellness
- Information Technologies
- Science, Engineering, and Math
- English as a Second Language
- Beyond Basic ESL
- Human Services and Public Safety
- Essential Skills Training for Job Seekers
Classes are available at various Durham Tech campuses and online.
