When you received and browsed through the Spring 2013 Continuing Education Catalog, you noticed some big changes. We combined the professional development and personal enrichment courses back into one catalog. The look and content were different -- a more attractive design, concise course descriptions, and easy-to-find course details, such as instructor, time, date, and location. We also revised the table of contents and categories so you could get where you wanted quicker.
We love to be liked!
To celebrate Valentine's Day, we're offering a 10% discount to the first 14 people who like us on Facebook and call to register for one of the following classes.

UNLV’s Medical Assistant Certificate program hit an important milestone in November with the graduation of its first students. These students have been working diligently toward this goal since they enrolled last spring.
The seven program graduates have good reason to feel optimistic about their careers. The demand for medical assistants is projected to grow rapidly in the coming decade. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) anticipates employment in this field will increase 31% from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.
35 hearty travelers from Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and Michigan rendezvoused in Ushuaia, Argentina in early December to set out on a journey of a lifetime. Over ten days they explored the world’s southernmost waters and continent. For some, the trip checked the seventh and final continent off their travel wish-list. For others, it was an opportunity to see and photograph landscapes and wildlife they had only ever read about. For all, it was a chance to learn about this stunning but sometimes forbidding part of our planet.
