Continuing education is a broad term that covers a variety of different adult education courses in the community. Thanks to modern technology, the term now includes course work that can be completed online, or by other electronic correspondence methods. If you are planning on providing continuing education courses, the first thing you need to do is locate your target audience.

There are several different reasons for taking continuing education courses. One reason is to obtain certification. Professionals such as teachers, real estate agents, and doctors, often need to take courses to renew their certification every couple of years. Some people take continuing education courses to increase their earning potential, or to learn new skills. You can even find courses online and in your community that teach you new hobbies, foreign languages, or computer skills.

A Case Study

Many people register for continuing education courses through their local college or university. I have taken several courses at UCLA during the last couple of years. I found out about these courses by logging onto the Internet, and searching for writing courses. The search engine provided me with information about several different programs in the Los Angeles area.

One of the reasons I signed up for the UCLA course was because the administration offered online registration. I knew if I had to fill out paperwork and send it in, I would find a million excuses not to take the class. Instead, I filled out the required form online, paid for the course with a credit card, and received a confirmation e-mail within a few days.
