Continuing Education

Northern's Continuing Education Program helps individuals upgrade their job skills, enhance their professional development and explore their personal interests, plus the program assists employers in improving the quality of the workforce. A variety of classes, workshops and seminars are designed to help individuals stay current in their field or acquire certification or credentialing for career advancement or to meet licensing requirements. We customize courses and programs for employers to meet the needs of their specific workplace.

Our flexible scheduling provides quality, cost-effective training that is convenient for students. Both credit and non-credit courses are available through continuing education and the College also awards CEU's. Generally, continuing education credits may not be used as college credits applicable to a degree program.

The Continuing Education Program strives to meet the community's needs for life-long learning. We encourage you to contact us if you need training or instruction in areas not included in our publications. Continuing Education courses are offered throughout the year and are included in the College's "Career Connections" publication and in special brochures and flyers.
