LEARN MORE AND IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS
Continuing education courses are offered to adults in the community by local school boards, colleges and universities. These courses can be on everything from web design to philosophy to art appreciation. Some schools may offer certificate programs, but usually, the focus of continuing education is on non-credit courses that allow you to develop a specific area of interest.
If you already have a university degree or college diploma, you may take continuing education courses to upgrade your skills. Employers may also allow flexible work hours during the period of study or subsidize course fees, especially if the program of study will make you more valuable to the organization.
