Certificate in Adult Education

About Adult Education:

Adult Education is an immense field that can be divided into dozens of sub-fields. The term “Adult Educator” refers to the individual involved in the teaching, training, skills development and program development of any adult educational environment. Said environment may take place on a university or college campus, in continuing education programs, an adult learning centre, a corporate site, a company board room, or even in someone’s home.

As a registered career college in Ontario, this Certificate is a Post-Secondary academic credential. Having a teachers’ college Certificate in Adult Education is a definite asset and may even be a requirement for teaching adults.

About the Program:

The Certificate in Adult Education program is comprised of four compulsory full credits (40 hours each) and two elective half credits (20 hours each) for total of 5 credits (200 hours online learning in total).

How the Program Works:

All courses are fully conducted online. Upon registration you will be sent a unique user name and password within 48 hours to your email by your appointed online instructor who will be there to support you from beginning to end. The 200 hours online can be fully completed in a number of weeks, months, or even a year and even longer; it is entirely up to you. All course modules allow participants to go at their own pace and are accessible 24/7 from any Internet connection worldwide, including mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

All full credit courses have 8 units and 4 online multiple choice tests. All half credit courses have 6 units and 2 online multiple choice tests. All courses also require a journal, which will in the future become an invaluable resource to the Adult Educator. Students will be prompted when to make journal entries throughout the program and encouraged to add as many additional journal entries as they wish.
