Lifelong learning is a tradition at the Institute. The College of Professional and Continuing Education (CPCE) is committed to helping adult learners achieve their educational and career goals, with evening and weekend courses designed to accommodate their busy lifestyles. The College works directly with corporations, the professions, and government in developing specific educational programs that address the needs of adult learners. Students applying for associate, bachelor, masters or certificate programs in the evenings or Saturdays are academically counseled and admitted by the college.

Wentworth also has a long tradition of offering specialized workforce training and development courses and programs to people in a number of technical fields. Certificates, courses, and seminars offered through CPCE are both practical and rigorous, and combine theory and practice. Taught by instructors who are active and experienced in their disciplines, these courses provide individuals with the experience and credentials needed to make them more competitive in the job market. Some courses offer the knowledge necessary for licensing and certification in the fields of construction, electrician and welding. Students who have successfully completed a professional certificate program are eligible for advanced standing credit in certain CPCE associate degree programs. Please call the CPCE at 617-989-4300 for information on upcoming courses and programs of study.
