Frequently Asked Questions
What are Continuing Education courses?
Continuing Education courses are classes that help enrich your current knowledge of a
particular subject matter or skill. They are usually short-term classes and can run anywhere
from 1 day to a few months. These classes are considered non-credit classes as you do not
receive a traditional grade of “A”, “B”, “C” etc. Instead, you receive a grade of Satisfactory or
Unsatisfactory. When you complete a Continuing Education course, you will receive a
Certificate of Course Completion. Some of our courses do lead to a Professional certification. If
so, it will be noted on the course page.
Do I need to apply for admission into Georgia Piedmont Technical College to take a
Continuing Education course?
No. Continuing Education Courses are not for college credit, therefore formal admission is
not required for our Continuing Education Courses.
How do I register for a Continuing Education Course?
Submit your contact information on the non-credit registration request application to Gretchen
Kyles at kyzerj@gptc.edu. Be sure to note the course that you are interested in by listing it on
the application.

Advanced Manufacturing Center (Building C) 8100 Bobby Williams Parkway, Covington GA
