Why should schoolchildren have all the fun this time of year? New pencils and notebooks are for everyone! As summer holidays draw to a close, many families focus on getting ready to return to the classroom in September.
It’s also a great time for adults to return to the classroom (whether it’s a real classroom or an online course) to polish up their career skills. Continuing Education classes are gearing up in September, so now is the perfect time for adult learners to choose their fall courses to earn a credential, take a course for personal interest or even prepare to switch careers.
Registration is ongoing and classes start throughout the fall months. Some courses last all semester while others take place over a few weeks, a weekend or even one day. There is a learning opportunity to fit even the busiest schedule.
New programs being introduced this fall are:
- Advanced Public Relations
- Asset Management
- Automotive Sales
- Business Administration
- Career Pathways: By Design, Not Default
- Community Investment Professional
- Digital Content Creation
- Disability Services Practitioner
- Wedding and Social Event Planner

Hoping your employer will help to fund your training? Tell them about the Canada-Alberta Job Grant so they can have 2/3 of the cost covered.
Once you’ve chosen your program you can register online, by phone, in person, by fax or by mail. (No carrier pigeon, though.)
