Continuing Education and Professional Development
The Continuing Education department was established in 1979 to make education more accessible to the public and to meet community needs that are not served by traditional college programs. Although it has been known by other names (e.g., Community Campus), the department’s purpose has remained the same. Continuing Education offers lifelong learning opportunities for students seeking professional development or personal enrichment, designed for students with varying educational backgrounds and goals. Course offering change continuously to reflect the ever-changing needs of the businesses and communities we serve.
Delgado's Continuing Education and Professional Development department offers on-site courses and online courses.
On-site classes begin on a staggered schedule throughout each semester, and are scheduled at a variety of times, including evenings and weekends. Classes can also be flexibly scheduled in response to student demand. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded for each course that is successfully completed. Earned CEUs become part of the student’s permanent record and are often used by employers as a means of evaluation professional development.
Delgado Community College offers a wide variety of highly interactive, career training programs and non-credit online courses through a partnership with ed2go. You can study whenever and wherever you choose, making it easy to learn and work even with a busy schedule. The courses are completely online, so you will never need to come to campus!
