Berkeley Continuing Education

Berkeley College is now accepting enrollment for continuing education courses, designed to introduce students to emerging career fields and provide professional development to those seeking career advancement.

The concentrated Certificate programs are offered in the areas of Interior Design, Paralegal, Police Studies, Compliance, Emergency Preparedness and Response, Homeland Security, Legal Nurse Consulting, Public-Private Partnerships, and Social Justice and Welfare. For added flexibility, students can enroll in many of the courses online.

 “As an academic institution that is focused on career and workforce development, Berkeley College has launched a more robust continuing education portfolio to serve the many individuals who are now unemployed or underemployed,” said Marsha Pollard, PhD, Provost, Berkeley College. “These programs, many of which can be completed entirely online, provide hands-on, practitioner-oriented training for individuals in need of career advancement, are experiencing a career transition, or are undecided with respect to committing to a degree program.”

Many of the for-credit continuing education programs also stack into Berkeley College’s respective degree programs, if students should later decide to pursue a full degree program.

Between 2016 and 2026, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that an average of 6.4 percent of workers will switch occupations.
