Continuing Education

The idea that learning is finished once we graduate from high school or college is a thing of the past. Personal and professional development is an ongoing process that continues for a lifetime. Scientific research has revealed the many benefits of lifelong learning. We now know that lifelong learning improves quality of life, as well as both physical and mental health. Lifelong learning is even tied to longer lifespan.

Continuing education is the opportunity to pursue our real passions that can lead to rewarding careers and a vibrant life where our passions are integrated into our vocation. Earning a living doing what we love is a goal we strive for, and continuing education is often the key to achieving that goal.

What is Continuing Education?

The Continuing Education Department at Emily Griffith Technical College offers more than 40 non-credit courses to help people from every walk of life pursue their next learning adventure. Our offerings are designed for both personal enrichment and professional development. Courses are offered in hands-on, online, and hybrid formats where there are both in-class and online components.

In the spirit of our founder, Emily Griffith, registration is open “for all who wish to learn,” regardless of age, area of residency, or educational background. Applications are not required.

Are scholarships or financial aid available?

Scholarships and financial aid is not available for Continuing Education classes; however pricing is very reasonable and competitive with similar classes offered in the Denver area. Classes start as low as $25.
