What is Continuing Education?

Continuing Education offers a wide variety of non-credit courses for lifelong learning in the areas of Community Education and Professional Development/Training. Additionally, Continuing Education offers Workforce Development, which includes Contractual and/or customized training.

  • Community Education classes are designed for all ages with subjects on health & wellness, art, golf, dance, and languages.
  • Professional Development/Training classes are designed to help individuals, businesses, agencies, and industries by providing classes that will improve individual and/or employee performance and productivity.
  • Workforce Development/Contract Training classes are developed in response to specific business needs and may be taught either on campus or at the business location.

Many courses help students prepare for a new career. Students may choose from a variety of online and face-to-face classes. In addition to the website information, Class Schedules are distributed throughout the NMSU-A service area three times a year: fall, spring, and summer; flyers are distributed throughout the seasons.
