“My career as an HR professional has given me opportunities to work with many people and organizations throughout the world in both the private and public sectors. There were those who I was glad to part ways with due to less than desirable experiences. These were who “talked the talk” about providing excellent service in order to get the business but when they were needed for urgent or out of the ordinary situations, they became fair weather friends and were hard to get support from. There were many others who gave the minimum needed to just get by. And then there are those who I can count by using the fingers of one hand (and have several left over) as being the epitome of excellence and the embodiment of exemplification; those who not only meet their obligations but who consistently surpass them and are true business partners. I’m delighted to put Clayton State University’s Center for Continuing Education in this category of excellence. They have been a source of great satisfaction for our business with their sincere care, flexibility, creativity, understanding, and ongoing support. I look forward to a great continuing and fruitful relationship with them.”

The classes are accelerated so you can complete the classes in shorter time than most programs and begin your new career in no time. You do however need to be committed for that short amount of time. As an instructor for CE, I find it rewarding to share my knowledge with others and watch them transform into butterflies waiting to take flight. I’ve had many students come back and share their success stories, some with unbelievable obstacles. If you put your mind to it, you

can do anything.

Three business days prior to the start date, if we do not have sufficient enrollment to cover our costs, we may have to cancel or postpone the course. We will notify students by phone and email. Students may choose to receive a full refund or transfer to a different course. Before a transfer is completed, any differences in registration fees will be refunded, if amount of new course is less than original fee, or must be paid, if fee for new course is greater than original fee.

85% refund for all withdrawals or credit towards a transfer made ten or more business days before the start date of the course
