Continuing Education

Be a lifelong learner.

While Berkeley College is known for our proven career-focused degree programs, we also offer additional learning opportunities that include:

  • Certificate programs offered through our School of Health Studies
  • Non-credit courses for professional and personal growth
  • Corporate Learning Partnerships (CLP)

Certificate Programs

Training students for some of today’s most in-demand healthcare careers, the Berkeley College School of Health Studies offers certificate programs in:

  • Medical Assistant
  • Medical Insurance, Billing, and Coding
  • Patient Care Technician
  • Practical Nurse
  • Surgical Processing Technician

These programs can be completed in less time than degree programs. Students learn in simulated healthcare environments from instructors with professional experience. The certificate programs listed above prepare students to sit for industry-specific licensure or certification exams. Some programs also offer the opportunity to continue into degree programs.

Courses for Professional and Personal Growth

Berkeley also offers opportunities for working professionals and non-matriculated students to expand and enhance their skills or prepare for certification exams in order to advance their careers. Current non-credit offerings include:
