Uncover a New You This Autumn
Education can be transformative. If you’re thinking about making a career
change, ramping up your skills or exploring your artistic side, we have many
certificate programs starting this autumn.

Spend an Hour Investigating a Certificate
You can learn more about a certificate at an upcoming information session.
We offer in-person meetings and online webinars. During either, you can chat
with program representatives and your peers to find out if the certificate is
the right fit for you. Presenters describe what the program covers, the types
of individuals who might benefit from it, and other aspects such as the
professional backgrounds of instructors or the career paths and success
stories of recent graduates.
In-person sessions are generally offered on weeknights at locations on
campus in Seattle or at our facilities in downtown Seattle and Bellevue.
Webinars may be scheduled midday or in the evening. Most sessions last
about an hour.

Attend a Special Event
We’re planning more events just for you. We offer open houses that focus on
a particular field and career nights where you can tap into the expertise of
career consultants, human resource experts and other professionals. Our
events are free, informative and great places to network. Be on the lookout
for our upcoming events by checking our Web site, Facebook and Twitter, as
well as this section of our future catalogs.

Connect With UWContinuingEd Online
Learn what’s going on with UW Professional & Continuing Education
(UWPCE) via Twitter and Facebook. Both are useful places to get your
questions answered, find out about new certificate programs, and learn more
about special events. We’re on YouTube too. View our channel for videos of
career night events, testimonials from certificate graduates and other
information about UWPCE.
