Courses and Programs
The CE Health Science department offers a wide range of CE courses in both direct patient and non-clinical healthcare. In addition to entry-level courses, which require no previous experience or education, we have a number of advanced certifications and CEU courses to offer to the experienced healthcare professional. Some of our courses require a pre-admission application. Registration for most courses is open up until the class begins or fills up (whichever comes first). However, we respectfully request that students register for courses at least three (3) days in advance so that we have time to order and prepare enough course materials.
We offer monthly information sessions for our programs. Visit our Information Sessions page to register.
