Our courses require a minimum of 80% attendance in order for participants to receive a Certificate of Completion from Alamo Colleges District. In some instances courses have attendance requirements beyond this percentage. Students should always make note of attendance requirements at the beginning of a course via their syllabus or direct conversation with the instructor. Be sure to ask about State Regulated courses that require a specific number of hours to qualify for a certification from a credentialing body.
Senior Citizen waiver and audits do not apply to Continuing Education courses.
The student should check their detail schedule for class information via their ACES account.

The Workforce Training Network is approved by the State Board for Educator Certification to provide CPE activities to Educators for certificate renewal purposes. All Texas Educators who hold a Standard Certificate must renew it every five (5) years. As a condition of renewal, superintendents and principals will be required to complete 200 clock hours of CPE, and all other educators must complete 150 hours.
The Workforce Training Network is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award CEUs for some courses. Satisfactory completion of ten clock hours of qualified instruction equals 1.0 CEUs. Transcripts listing CEU credits satisfactorily completed will be available upon request. Otherwise, a certificate of completion is awarded upon course completion.
CE students have the option to convert CEU's to academic credits for qualifying programs which may lead towards an academic certificate or associate's degree at any of the Alamo Colleges. A six-hour academic requirement must be met before the CEU's can be transferred into college credit.
A course may be canceled due to low enrollment. If a student is a paid student in a course that is canceled, they will receive a full refund within 7 to 10 business days. Alamo Colleges District staff will make every effort to contact and notify the student of the canceled course.
Many classes must be limited in size due to the nature of the subject matter and size of available facilities. Although most course training programs are open to students who feel they can benefit from the instruction, some courses are restricted to those students with specific prerequisites. In these instances, program managers will verify that students meet prerequisite requirements.
Financial aid for Continuing Education is managed through the Texas Public Education Grant (TPEG). Students seeking financial assistance must follow the process outlined on our TPEG Website.
Most of our classes are designed for adults seeking job skills training and are restricted to students 18 years of age or older. Please call 210-21ALAMO (210-212-5266) for more information.
Continuing Education students are allowed to park in designated "student parking" free of charge.
