CPD - Web-based Learning

Online Courses

Online Courses

Online courses are convenient and inexpensive options for today’s busy lifestyle. Partnering with an online learning consortium, we offer hundreds of noncredit online courses to individuals and companies. Both professional and personal development programs are available. With topics such as computer applications, personal finance, web design, nutrition and starting your own business, you are sure to find something of interest!

Our instructor-facilitated online courses are informative, convenient and interactive. All courses run for six weeks, with two-weeks at the end to complete your studies and take the final exam. Each noncredit course is composed of 12 lessons, representing 24 hours of instruction. Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas and more. You can complete any of these courses entirely from your home or office and at any time of the day or night. A new section of each course begins monthly.  You will have access to your class two days prior to the posted start date. 

If you have any questions, contact the Lifelong Learning office at ll@wku.edu or (270) 745-1912.
