As determined by demand, Lake Michigan College shall offer continuing education services (credit-free) programs and activities for economic development, job upgrading, personal development and public service (e.g., short courses, seminars, workshops, conferences concerts, lectures and forums.). When participants attend Continuing Education and Contract Training programs, participants may receive CEUs (Continuing Education Units) which are approved by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). Participants must complete a Lake Michigan College Continuing Education registration form to receive CEUs and successfully complete the course. Enrollees may also obtain an official transcript of CEU courses, seminars and certificate programs taken to improve professional development skills at Lake Michigan College. Participants have the responsibility to verify applicability with their respective sponsoring organization or professional board before attending a program.
Where necessary, Continuing Education Units (CEU) shall be awarded for satisfactory participation in the credit-free activities that meet specific instructional criteria. The administration shall establish procedures as may be required to implement this policy effectively.
