It's no secret that enrolling in a degree program takes commitment, both on a student's time and finances, but sometimes this structure may not be ideal for everyone. That's why the Continuing Education Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville is proud to offer additional opportunities for professional growth with their Professional Pathway Certificate programs.

These certificates are created by professionals, for professionals—and can be completed in a matter of months. This gives learners just the edge they need in today's competitive market, minus the full degree program requirements.

"Our Professional Pathway certificates are for anyone looking to enhance their career, from seasoned experts to recent graduates," said Kerie Wedige, executive director of the Continuing Education Institute. "Each certificate is tailored with accessibility and affordability in mind, and we're happy to offer these resources to any wishing to continue their education."

No matter where one is on their educational journey, CEI's seven Professional Pathway certificates offer an alternate solution for the lifelong student or professional leader. Best of all, each certificate is 100% online—guaranteeing maximum flexibility for those with busy schedules. A brief overview of CEI's available certificates include:
