The Continuing Education program is an open learning community that offers affordable non-credit courses and events for those who are looking to learn new skills, explore new fields of study, prepare for industry certification, or enrich their personal lives. We strive to make learning possible for all types of learners in our diverse community through in-person, evening, weekend, online, and summer options.
Our program currently offers courses in Boating and Music.
We offer a wide range of interactive courses that can be taken entirely online. All
courses are led by expert instructors, many of whom are nationally-known authors.
Our online courses are affordable, convenient, and geared just for you.
With instructor-led courses, you will find opportunities for professional development and personal enrichment, with a convenient six-week format and sessions starting monthly. With career training programs, you can prepare for industry certification or start a new career, often in less than six months and starting at any time.

Professional Development Clock Hour Fee
Teachers who would like to earn clock hours with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) for continuing education classes can do so by paying a $15 per quarter clock hours fee. Pay this fee once per quarter and earn clock hours for any courses taken during that quarter. Attendance and course completion will be verified before the OSPI Continuing Education Clock Hour Credit Inservice Registration form (FORM SPI 1125) will be issued. Please check with your school or OSPI to verify that the particular class(es) you are interested in will fulfill your inservice requirement. Learn more about clock hours at the OPSI’s webpage.
