ECC also has service agreements with other community-based organizations, adult schools, civic groups, and agencies. Specific non-credit courses and workshops can be designed and organized through the Community and Continuing Education area if requested by a particular group or agency. ECC offers Continuing Education Units (CEUs), a nationally acceptable unit of measurement applicable to non-credit, continuing education courses. A certificate of completion is awarded after successful participation in a CEU certified non-credit course.
