Professional Learning Programs

Information Technology Certificate Programs

The Information Technology (IT) Certificate Programs offered through the School of Applied Technology (SAT) of Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) are full semester programs offered in conjunction with Information Technology and Management (ITM) courses.  A participant may choose to take the course as an IT Certificate Program and receive Continuing Education Units (CEU) rather than credit hours.  Participants are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the program.  However, to be awarded CEU, attendance and class participation as defined by the instructor is required. In addition, an evaluation must be completed at the end of the term. 


Short Courses

Short courses are usually 1 - 5 day live classes offered either at an IIT campus or corporate site. Enrollment in a short course will be granted to anyone who completes the online enrollment form here and pays the course fee required for the short course. Enrollment will also be handled for a corporate group through a company representative of the group wishing to enroll in the short course. A purchase order may also be accepted in cases of corporate groups.


Professional Engineering Review (PL 004/005/006)

Preparation courses for the state exams in Professional Engineer (PE)/Principles and Practice and the Engineering Intern (EI)/Fundamentals of Engineering are offered live and online twice yearly to coincide with national exam dates. There are over 30 different review classes offered. Candidates may participate in all review courses for their engineering discipline and may use the recorded sessions to continue to review after the live class has taken place.


Online Courses with Ed2Go (Monthly)

Through our partnership with Ed2Go, we are able to offer a wide range of highly interactive programs, which may be taken over the Internet. These instructor-facilitated online courses are informative, fun, convenient, and highly interactive. The instructors are famous for their ability to create warm and supportive communities of learners. All courses run for six weeks (with a two-week grace period at the end).  Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas, supplementary links and more. Participants can complete any course entirely from the home or office any time of the day or night.


Professional Learning in Education (for K-12 teachers) Courses

Through our partnership with the Mathematics and Science Education Department of Illinois Institute of Technology, we are able to offer professional development courses for our K-12 teaching community for graduate credit. Courses vary in length. Some programs are delivered over 1 - 5 days. Others may meet regularly over a semester. Still others may be online courses delivered through our Blackboard Learning System lasting 6 - 8 weeks.
