Continuing Education is an Option for a Diverse Range of People

Today, the term continuing education can be applied to a variety of situations and a variety of people. Those who are returning to school after having completed high school and taking a break from school are considered continuing education students. Professionals who are experts in their field but are looking to upgrade their skills to keep up with technology may benefit from continuing education. Students who wish to study remotely or on-campus during evenings are considered part of the continuing education umbrella.

Centennial College's School of Continuing Education caters to all of these students (nearly 22,000 of them every year) through its 160 programs that feature 1,200 courses and a 97 per cent learner satisfaction. At Centennial College, continuing education study options include part-time, evening, weekend, online and alternative format courses — all of which are designed to help students improve their skills, further their education and pursue a variety of interests.

For example, one popular continuing education method is Distance Learning, which is offered in an online learning format that is instructor-led but allows students to complete course material and assignments in their own time and space, with 24- hour access to the online classroom. Another option is Print Based Courses. For this continuing education method, correspondence or print based courses (PB) offer students the ability to work at their own paces, typically within a six-month time frame. Print-based courses are best suited for students who work independently with minimal supervision. In most cases, both delivery methods (online & PB) require students to attend the campus towards the end of their class to write a continuing education final exam.

The more traditional way of attending Centennial College's School of Continuing Education is to attend class on-campus during the evenings on a part-time basis. This option is for students who enjoy learning face-to-face with their instructor, interacting with peers, partaking in group and class projects or require a more hands-on approach.

Whichever continuing education option they choose, Centennial College students are all: provided with experienced instructors who understand adult learning needs and offer flexible, learner-centered teaching methodologies; gain knowledge to place relevant theory into context and perspective; learn in a mature environment where and work experience is considered; and more. Among the specific continuing education areas of study are: Addiction Studies, Business, Computers and Information Technology, Early Childhood Education, Engineering Technology, Food Service Worker, Media and Design, Part-time Health Studies, Retirement Communities Management/Long Term Care Management, Transportation, and more.

All programs facilitated through the Continuing Education school have their own prerequisites and it's best to check each individual program's page to ensure that students have the necessary requirements to apply. It should also be noted that within certain programs there might be qualification requirements and costs for external accreditations, designations, certifications or recognitions. These are set by the granting bodies and not by Centennial College. In order to qualify for any of those external accreditations, designations, certification or recognition, students and graduates will need to follow the processes and meet the applicable requirements listed on the websites and materials of those external bodies.
