Posted On : Jan-11-2012 | seen (679) times | Article Word Count : 497 |

Continuing education is an option chosen by many adult learners and those with responsibilities that prevent them from attending school full-time. Centennial College boasts a School of Continuing Education.
Sometimes, attending school isn't as simple as choosing a program and coming to campus five times a week for eight hours at a time. Sometimes, life gets in the way with jobs, other responsibilities, family duties, lack of money, a low GPA from high school and other such issues affecting your ability to obtain a full-time education. However, for those who are determined to advance their post-secondary credentials, continuing education is the best option. This route is created with flexibility in mind. It allows students a number of ways to obtain their education. For example, students can attend classes on-campus during the evenings and weekends or they can take their program entirely online.

With 160 continuing education program options, Centennial College's School of Continuing Education is a reliable choice that guarantees you graduate with a credential that will not only advance your career but is also well known in the field. These programs are offered at Centennial College's four centrally-located — Ashtonbee, Progress, Morningside and the Centre for Creative Communications. In addition, each campus houses specific Schools of study so that you are able to mingle and network with other students in your field. Studying on-campus offers features such as fully-equipped facilities, a classroom setting, group projects, labs, presentations and more.

If, however, travelling to campus is not an option for you, Centennial College offers another continuing education option. Known as Distance Learning, it is facilitated online through instructor-led study enabling students to work through course material and assignments in their own time and space, with 24-hour access to the online classroom. Online course delivery saves travel time, while still enjoying similar in-person benefits of a physical classroom such as: a qualified and industry-experienced instructor, communication tools, discussion boards and forums, a sense of email access with your classmates, digital assignment capability, 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 you 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. You'll be able to find more information when you apply online for the Continuing Education program of your choice. So just what types of programs are offered? Areas of study include: accounting, business, computer and information technology, early childhood education, fitness, media and design, health studies, and much more.

With nearly 22,000 learners each year in 160 programs that feature more than 1,200 courses and have a 97 per cent learner satisfaction, it is clear that Centennial College has a proud continuing education reputation.
