Welcome to the Continuing Education Department at UAA!   

Look at all the beautiful leaves and colors around us - autumn is here! We Alaskans like our activities so the Fall 2014 schedule of classes is now available to peruse for keeping your mind sharp through the coming months.  Review professional development opportunities highlighted this fall: Lunch & Learn sessions include Getting Organized, Communication & Collaboration, Dealing with People Problems, and Social Media Marketing. Lunch AND a class - what a great combination!

We also offer an extensive schedule of Microsoft application training courses including Word, Excel, Access, Outlook and PowerPoint. And learn how to create a podcast, how to get the most out of your iPhone, and how to use that new Mac more effectively.

New professional development topics this fall include Working with Different Generations; Peer Today, Boss Tomorrow; Effective Interviewing Skills; and Influential Leadership. These half-day classes will leave you with golden nuggets that you can put into use immediately!

Our American Red Cross certified safety courses include CPR/AED training, First Aid, and Wilderness & Remote First Aid. Do you boat either recreationally for pleasure, for fishing or business? The 12-Hour Cold Water Survival Training is approved by both the US Coast Guard and Alaska Marine Safety Education Association (AMSEA). The life you save could be YOURS!

Fall in Alaska also means food – enjoy some culinary delights with
