Single Courses for credit

We offer Stand-alone single Courses with tuition and faculty support which each earn a Continuing Education certificate showing the hours and material learned.

Certificate Programs

We offer Certificate Programs which combine courses to earn a Program Certificate.

How to purchase course materials for self study

Anyone may purchase course materials for self-study without enrolling in the course or paying tuition. See course descriptions here.

How to enroll in a single course for faculty support and Continuing Education credit

  • You may take any course at any time.
  • You may purchase the material without enrolling in the course.
  • You may optionally pay an enrollment fee and tuition and receive online faculty support, grading of questions and assignments, and a CE certificate on completion of the course.
  • Your first step to take the course for CE credit is to order the materials.
  • Course materials you receive will include the enrollment application.
  • When you are ready to start the course, send in your enrollment application..
  • Your faculty support and term will begin when you receive our email acknowledgement of your enrollment.
  • Students who do not complete the course within the term may request an extension.
  • Each course earns a certificate as a stand-alone Continuing Education course.

How to earn a Program Certificate

    • To earn one of the Program Certificates, you need to complete each of the courses in it for CE credit. (See above)
    • You may present CE certificates for the courses in your program, with a $25 fee, to receive the Program Certificate.
    • Anyone who has completed any course in the past may apply it to a Program Certificate.
    • We do not have separate enrollment in Programs, only in the the individual courses.
    • Each course must be completed within its own term, but there is no term or time limit to complete the courses in a Program.
    • This allows you the purchase materials and pay tuition as you work you way through the course, in your own time, rather than pay a larger sum up front.
