Professional Development

Participate in a Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) webinar, face-to-face workshop, or certification program to gain critical knowledge that will help you dramatically increase adult learners’ success. Since 1974, we have set the standards for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), adult student advising, employee learning, and workforce development. You can rely on our professional development programs to help you help adult learners.
