Gadsden State’s Continuing Education Department is committed to linking College and community resources to provide quality enrichment programs to people of all ages. Through the Continuing Education Department, fee-based workshops, classes, community service activities and continuing education courses are offered. Offerings are designed for people who want to learn for personal and professional growth but aren’t necessarily interested in earning academic credit or pursuing a college degree. Programs are provided for traditional and non-traditional students and can be targeted to individuals in business, government, professional organizations and social services.
The Continuing Education Department consists of two major divisions: Professional Development and Community Education. Examples of courses provided through the Professional Development Division include nursing seminars, air conditioning and refrigeration instruction and CPR. The Community Education Division includes a large variety of classes aimed at personal development, interest and leisure courses. Programs are provided for youth, adults and seniors through seminars, workshops and short courses. Satellite conferences and special events are also presented through the Continuing Education Department. Courses appear online and in the schedule of traditional Gadsden State classes each semester.
