Spring Continuing Education Courses Available for Viewing and Registration Online

November 12, 2014 - 13:08

Continuing Education’s upcoming term features many classes to challenge and inspire you. Whether you are looking to build career skills, explore a new hobby, or take a unique journey, the new catalog may have just what you are looking for. Catalogs will be available at area libraries by Thanksgiving, but the digital catalog and registration are already available online at ced.unlv.edu/cat2015.

Continuing Education’s professional development team works with local industries to create classes and certificate programs which teach the practical skills employers seek. Nevada’s designation as one of just six Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) test sites in the US will open numerous career opportunities in UAS design, testing, and policy. Courses from UNLV’s UAS academic minor can be combined into a non-degree certificate program through Continuing Education. Courses begin in January. For personal trainers, we have expanded National Academy of Sports Medicine certifications to include Essentials of Corrective Exercise Training and Fitness Nutrition Specialist certifications in the spring. Also new in the catalog are two programs for nurses. Experienced nurses can apply their medical knowledge in the growing field of medical law as a nurse paralegal. Recently graduated nurses can gain the clinical experience needed to secure their first job by enrolling in GAP Training for RNs.

For additional information of these and other professional development opportunities, visit continuingeducation.unlv.edu/certificate-programs.

Not to be outdone, the personal enrichment team will also launch numerous new programs for spring. Capture and edit high-quality images with your phone or tablet after taking Cell Phone Photography. Uncover your family history with a new Genealogy course. Take Car Care 101 and extend the life of your car by completing your own preventative maintenance; this course would make a great gift for new drivers. There is a bit of a theme among another set of new courses: Home Winemaking, Home Brewing, Whiskey, Bourbon & Scotch Tasting, World of Craft Beers, and Wine Essentials all will wet your whistle (but only if you are 21 or older!). These courses are only a small sampling of the broad spectrum of available courses.

UNLV travel courses offer unique experiences led by experts from the university and community. Travel options range from a daytrip studying the Mojave’s geology, ecology, and native people, to overnights in Death Valley or California, to a once-in-a-lifetime raft trip through the Grand Canyon.
