Lackawanna College’s Continuing Education Department serves the educational, employment, and training needs of the communities that surround all of its centers in northeastern Pennsylvania.
Continuing Education addresses those needs of the community that do not fall under the traditional college structure, including a variety of training programs. Individuals may choose courses that fill a personal need, develop basic skills, allow them to advance in their careers, or start a new one.
Offerings include non-credit courses and certificate programs, specialized job training, and seminars. The variety of programs offered will help address both the individual’s and organization’s personal or professional needs. Our goal is to aid students in obtaining the skills necessary to succeed in today’s business and medical markets.
Programs offerings include, but are not limited to, Workforce Development, online training and certificates, and personal enrichment. Program availability differs by location, but many courses are offered during day, evening, lunch, or weekend hours. Additional arrangements can be made for customized on-site training.
Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional hours are available by appointment. Appointments can be made by calling (570) 504-0498.
