Continuing Education

Here to boost your job skills? Our Continuing Education format might be just what you’re looking for. Continuing Education is for students who want class credit but don’t plan to complete a degree. They pay the same class, registration, and activity fees as students enrolled in a Degree Program.

What are the benefits of this?

  • Student attendance and class performance is tracked.
  • Student gets a grade.
  • PFI works with employers to invoice.
  • PFI sends a letter of course completion to the student and employer.

You can also choose Continuing Education if you wish to get credit for classes, then apply that credit to a PFI certificate program in the future.

Complete the form below to get started. Then, contact the Office of the Registrar at to ask questions and register for the credit option for the class(es) of your choice.
