Continuing Education at Humber is traditionally offered in the evenings and weekends. They are general/special interest and continuous professional development courses.

This list was generated by Humber's registrar based on courses offered after 6pm and on weekends, and people are not required to be in a specific Humber program to register. Some of these courses can lead to local certifications.
