Center for Continuing Studies

Professional Development

We have provided professional development training to thousands of individuals in Central Minnesota during the past 15 years. Our aim is to provide the skills you need to stay competitive in today’s aggressive job market. 

From open enrollment programs to vetted online training programs, we ensure that our professional development programs meet St. Cloud State's mission and standards.  Many come with the opportunity to earn a non-credit St. Cloud State certificate or industry-recognized certificate.

We add programs based on community needs. So, if you don’t see an appropriate program, we're happy to help construct a plan that meets your needs.

Got an idea for a new program? Contact Tammy Anhalt-Warner or call 320-308-4252

Formal admission to St. Cloud State is not required for these programs.



We coordinate these programs through The Center for Legal Studies, one of the most respected legal education centers.

The courses are taught by legal and educational professionals selected by CLS.

The curriculum is updated regularly to remain current with the newest trends and state-of-the-art technology in the legal industry.
