Continuing Education

Never Stop Learning!

NECI also offers non-degree professional development and continuing education courses for educators and the food and beverage professional, primarily through our online learning platform.. With an intense focus on providing you with state-of-the-art, relevant and practical fields of study, NECI continuing education courses are designed to quickly and effectively engage and enhance your professional development.  Our Continuing Education and Professional Development courses are perfect for the professional who wants to further his or her education, but prefers not to jump into the full-on program.  These courses are the same intensity and quality as our program courses, but you can choose to take one at a time.  You may even be able to apply the work that you do toward a degree program down the road.

Whether you want to enhance your industry credentials, change specialties, or simply learn new skills or trends, NECI Online can provide you with the training you need to help you grow as a professional and move to the next level of achievement.
