Continuing Workforce Education

Continuing Workforce Education is instruction that does not result in a certificate, diploma or degree.

Continuing Workforce Education is for:

  • Individuals who are required to have training for licensure renewal or certification renewal by a regulatory or credentialing body. Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) are awarded to individuals for successful completion of certain approved credit courses, programs, classes and activities for nurses, EMT’s and Paramedics, law enforcement and corrections personnel. One CEU is awarded for every ten (10) contact hours of participation. The CEU serves as a unit of measure to give recognition for an individual’s participation in approved non-credit activities. CEU’s do not convert to semester credit hours.
  • New or expanding businesses.
  • Business, industry and governmental agencies whose products or services are changing so that retraining of employees is necessary or whose employees need training in specific skills to increase efficiency and productivity.
  • Individuals who are enhancing occupational skills necessary to maintain current employment, to cross-train or to upgrade employment.
