Training, Continuing Education and Community Service Unit
The Training, Continuing Education and Community Service Unit at the Arab Open University contributes a crucial role in rounding off student education by providing practical, specialized and applied training to complement the formal education received by our students during degree studies at the University. This additional training can result in improving the student motivation during their university years by focusing their attention to specific specializations that they may be interested in and by linking their studies to industrial needs. In addition, training results in enhancing the student chances of quick employment upon graduation. Also, the Unit's objectives include encouraging continuing and life-long education by offering courses to upgrade student skills and capabilities after graduation. Finally, there is also a community service mission for the Unit, whereby free or reduced-cost courses are offered to the public on topics that are deemed to be of most benefit to the community.
