Business and Career Training
Continuing Education strives to be the business community’s “trainer of choice.” In addition to offering customized training programs, every semester many workforce and professional development open enrollment programs are offered. Each semester these programs are selected based on the ongoing interaction the Continuing Education staff has with the business and professional communities. Grants are sometimes available to help offset the cost of training.
Customized Training Solutions
SUNY Adirondack Continuing Education designs and customizes programs for companies to help them meet their specific training needs. Our customized contract training approach allows us to deliver high-quality training to move businesses and organizations forward. These solutions are as unique as the companies and employees we serve.
Customized training can take many formats from one-on-one training to classroom-style learning, on-site, or at the college’s locations in Queensbury and Wilton, during the day or in the evening, live online or through an asynchronous multimedia platform. It’s this flexibility that enables SUNY Adirondack Continuing Education to respond quickly to the training needs of the business community.
Paper companies, hospitals and healthcare organizations, medical device manufacturers, insurance companies, law firms, accounting firms, and hospitality providers are just some of the industry segments for whom Continuing Education has developed customized training.

SUNY Adirondack Continuing Education recognizes the importance of certificate programs and offers several including the SHRM human resource practitioner, IT career training, and food safety to meet the needs of a variety of industry segments.
