Online Training

Online Learning
Anytime, Anywhere - You're There

Imagine being able to update your professional skills, prepare for a new career, or even learn just for fun, while in the comforts of your own home or office…no class schedule, no babysitter, no traffic! The College of Continuing and Professional Education offers two types of online learning options that allow you to learn where you want and when you want.

None of our online courses require you to be online at a specific time. Some of our courses start anytime, while others have specific monthly start dates.

Some courses require textbooks, software, or other materials - please see individual course listings for specific information. Many of these items are available in the KSU bookstore. Don't forget that as a KSU student, you may be eligible to purchase required software at an education discount.

NOTE: Online training programs offered by the College of Continuing and Professional Education are available in most states. If you are an out-of-state student, please confirm that the program is available in your state by contacting the Registration Department.
