Continuing higher education is often the doorway to enhanced opportunities, growth and potential for many businessmen and women—but it can seem difficult to go back to school while balancing the demands of work, home life and free time. Thankfully, more and more universities in Louisiana are providing access to certificates, graduate degrees and undergraduate programs that are built to help working people continue their education without sacrificing other parts of their schedules. This coursework allows students to invest in themselves—and graduates from these programs can see the benefit in their careers for years to come. Whether you’re a manager looking to gain the skills to earn your next promotion, a worker looking to transition to a new field, or just an employee who wants to diversify your portfolio, the schools in this section have options that will fit your budget and your lifestyle.

Delgado Community College’s Continuing Education and Professional Development Department offers a wide variety of affordable and highly interactive career training programs and non-credit online courses that make it easy for individuals to study entirely over the internet. Designed for individuals with varying educational backgrounds and goals, the Continuing Education online course suite presents multiple learning opportunities for those seeking professional development or personal enrichment including Six Sigma, Grant Writing, Project Management, Interior Design and more.

“As the world continues to adjust to the ever-evolving COVID-19, we understand how important online learning is now more than ever,” said Kim Tubre, Delgado’s Director of Corporate, Community, and Continuing Education. “Our Continuing Education online course suite is not only convenient but affordable and is ideal for personal enrichment, career development, employee training, and life-long learning.”

Delgado’s online career training programs are designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional level positions for many in-demand occupations. The programs are developed by a team of professionals from each respective field, providing students with effective web-based learning. The online personal and professional development courses are geared towards individuals who want to enhance their value at work, make home their new workplace, or simply enrich their lives by increasing their knowledge.

Additionally, Delgado’s Office of Workforce Development Division provides personal, professional and customized training for a range of industries. Small business owners can retrain and upgrade their existing workforce, or individuals hoping to start a career in health care can be matched with the educational opportunities.
