Dean’s Greeting


Innovation Happens Here

When you think about CPE, what comes to mind? Culinary? Medical Assisting? Payroll? We pride ourselves on offering career-building programs that will never go out of style. Think about it: People love to eat, healthcare is universally important, and getting paid is paramount to our livelihood.

However, did you know we offer what some might perceive as nontraditional careers? For example, social media exploded in the early 2000s with the advent of platforms such as Facebook and MySpace. Now, posting, tweeting and sharing content on a full-time basis comes with an office, salary and benefits. Ask our Social Media Marketing graduates who have either secured jobs or developed their own businesses.

Data breaches are an unfortunate circumstance but we have an elegant solution – our Ethical Hacker certificate. This is one of our newest programs and is designed to thwart cyberattacks. Many of our students have experience in the information technology field, so this course takes it to another level!

Dave Durden, this edition’s featured student, discovered our Professional Investigator program. He wanted to add to his already impressive skillset of military service and protective services experience. Our course provided a way for him to enhance his business and continue to build upon his professional areas of interest. Learn more about him in our Spring 2019 Course Catalog.

CPE is the place where innovation happens. We are focused on keeping our traditional programs current while developing courses that will keep you on the leading edge of industry demands.

Regardless of where your interests are – healthcare, technology, business, culinary – we have a class for you. Prepare to elevate yourself to an incredible level of success!
