December 31, 2019—Individuals looking to learn new skills and employers who want to provide the latest in workforce training can take advantage of Georgian Court University’s new Center for Professional Studies (CPS). The center launches in January 2020 and delivers more than 100 courses, certification programs, and corporate customized training options. Registration is open now.

“No matter the field, we all have to keep up with new and emerging technologies,” said Leah Pontani, associate vice president for professional studies and business development at Georgian Court. “Classes in the Center for Professional Studies are designed to do that and more. For example, if you went to college as an English major or studied something else 15 years ago and you’re working in an entirely different field, we can help you find ways to validate and master certain skills that capitalize on your 10+ years of on-the-job experience.”
