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. 

Certificate Programs

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. 

Certification Exam Preparation Courses

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.
