     “Our career enrichment courses underscore the value of continuing education, especially for top demand occupations in Louisiana,” Gunter added. “By providing continuing education units (CEU’s), Southeastern’s non-credit courses assist participants with their personal career portfolio and organizations with a nationally recognized standard for training.”

Personal enrichment courses such as How to Write a Novel, Digital Photography, Instant Piano for Busy People and Beginning Harmonica are being offered due to their popularity, Gunter said.
