Continuing & Professional Education Programs
Take cutting-edge courses designed by instructors who are experts in their fields. Whether you are a non-traditional student, a professional seeking a career change, or a corporation that wants to improve employees' skills, we are here to help you achieve your continuing and professional education goals.
Our short-term non-credit training programs are open to individuals and organizations interested in building knowledge and skills, earning a credential, or making a transition to a new career. Face-to-face, online and blended options are available.
Non-credit certificates lead to professional advancement and growth, pave the way for a career change, and provide an opportunity for you to learn new and in-demand skills. Certificate programs are typically a more in-depth experience than taking a single course, and you will earn a certificate of completion through UA Continuing & Professional Education.
Industry Certification Exam Preparation
Certification exam preparation courses prepare you to take a nationally-recognized certification exam, such as CCNP, CISA, CISSP, CompTIA, Microsoft Office Specialist, or Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exams.
Customized Learning Programs
Strategic learning has the ability to transform organizations as employees gain the skills and knowledge they need to excel. From closing performance gaps, to mastering new technologies and software, to building staff morale, we can partner with you to create a customized learning plan for your organization that will have an immediate impact on your bottom line.
Collaborative Non-Credit Course Development
