Workforce Development & Continuing Education

Workforce Development and Continuing Education at Pennsylvania Highlands is the leader in workforce training, continuing education, and personal enrichment courses in our region.  Pennsylvania Highlands offers a wide selection of courses that allows our student-customers to excel professionally, grow intellectually and stimulate their minds and bodies.

Our Workforce Development courses are designed to meet the needs and interests of individuals and to support regional business and industry workforce training goals that enhance the skill sets of incumbent and new workers.  Located in the Workforce Education Center of our Richland Campus, our staff and education partners work closely with regional customers to deliver a diverse range of standard and customized classroom and online courses.  We can provide training at your facilities or at any of our five locations in Blair, Cambria, Huntingdon, and Somerset counties.

Our Continuing Education offerings are intended to help you grow professionally or to just enjoy life by expanding your knowledge or fitness through Personal Enrichment and online courses. Whether you want to learn a new language, explore a new interest, or become proficient in a technical application, you will find a variety of options to choose from here and in our current course brochure.

Many of our Workforce Development and Continuing Education offerings are designed to be delivered as online courses in either a self-paced or instructor-led format.  They can lead to either a certificate of completion or a professionally-recognized certification via a third party testing service.   Professional certifications enhance your resume and can lead you to a new job or career path.   Our online IT Training courses through the Microsoft® IT Academy are particularly popular with options for reasonably-priced financial support.

We are always seeking new ideas to help further expand the training, education, and special study opportunities in our community. If you have an idea or suggestion, please contact us at 814.262.3815 or via email at continuinged@pennhighlands.edu.
