Adults who are considering pursuing continuing education have a variety of choices when it comes to earning a
degree or certificate. They can pursue college degrees through a community college or four-year institution,
receive training and certification through vocational or trade programs, or simply expand their knowledge and
skills through basic adult education classes. The avenue that you choose very much depends on your individual
goals and needs.

If you are interested in pursuing a specific career path then the degree or certification and training
you for that career will certainly play a large role in determining what type of school and program
need
you
choose. Spend time studying the programs available at the schools in your area. The point of this exercise
is to choose a school but rather to look at the options open to you. What interests you? Can you picture
not
yourself working in that field?

If you have been out of school for a long time then you may want to test the waters with a basic adult
education class first. Adult education classes can help you brush up on basic skills, such as writing
or
computer use, as well as help you get back into the swing of being a student. The classes are also often much
more affordable than a class you would take at a college or institute and often involve less time commitment
as well.

If you are unsure what career path you would like to take then you should consider earning a general diploma
from a local community college. Perhaps while working toward that degree you will discover interests and
talents you had not suspected previously. Then you will be able to apply your classes to your new degree
without difficulty. Even if you do not find a vocation that interests you, that general studies diploma
will help you further your professional life.

Furthering your education and training whether in your existing field or a new profession is always
beneficial. While pursuing a college degree might be the best option you owe it to yourself to check out adult
basic education classes as well as community college programs and technical and training schools.
