Online Non-Credit Certificate Programs

CE online

If you have ever thought about trying an online course or certificate program but were afraid that it would be too difficult, or just not for you, try one of our instructor-facilitated online courses. Offered through our partnerships with ed2go, Gatlin, and MindEdge, these programs are informative, fun, convenient, and hightly interactive. Our instructors are well-known for their ability to create warm and supportive communities of learners. It's no wonder that many long-lasting friendships have formed in the lively discussion areas.

Online non-credit certificate programs and courses offer you the option to study at your own pace and on your own schedule! Several of the certificate programs qualify for Section 30 benefits, if you are currently collecting unemployment benefits.

Many courses run for about six weeks (with a two-week grace period at the end) and certificate programs average 90-120 days to complete, and include everything you need to succeed. There are over 50 online, non-credit certificate programs to choose from. Click on the category of your choice below, to browse through our extensive list of programs. You can also attend a demo of many of these certificate programs before you decide to register. View and register for any of the non-credit online certificate programs by clicking on the links below.
