An introductory level program also may serve as the foundation for subsequent intermediate and advanced learning. Introductory level programing may also be related to an emerging area of knowledge or practice.
Intermediate – Intermediate level programming builds upon foundational knowledge in a content area. Programming can help the participant understand applications and limitations of theories and applied skill sets. Intermediate level programming may also focus on an integration of skills. This programming could also serve as a refresher course for individuals who have background in a content area and are interested in learning more contemporary applications.
Advanced – CE program content at an advanced level builds upon established experience, knowledge and skills in the content area. Advanced level programming tends to be more specialized in nature and allows the participant to integrate and enhance knowledge and skills into their practice or other professional domains.
