How can I find out about other educational opportunities (continuing education, professional training, certifications, etc.)?
You might first research opportunities at colleges and universities within your community. Many community colleges offer continuing education classes across all disciplines. State colleges and universities might offer full-blown continuing education programs aiding you in the further development of specific skill sets.
A second option is to search the Internet. By searching for educational opportunities in a specific discipline within your area, you are sure to find several opportunities not too far from home, possibly even through online training.
Many employers also either offer or will pay for continuing educational opportunities and certification programs that can help you in your career development. You might check with your employer to see if such programs exist. Or perhaps your friends, family members or co-workers know of opportunities that might be available to you.
