What is a USE Continuing Education Certificate?


Our mission is to create a long distance learning program in sports management that will connect your education, career, and the workplace! We are committed to helping your career and we trust you will enjoy our courses.

USE has developed high quality courses with accomplished college professors, most of whom have earned their living in the sports world. They are college level courses! You can be proud to get the USE sports certificate and put it on your resume as you look for a career in Sports Management.

USE professors are current college professors today. Most of them have worked in the sports industry previously so their career advice and academic teaching are based on real-life experiences plus the textbook.

USE courses are designed and developed for people who are looking for something more in their personal and professional lives. That means more career options in sports plus more income after completing our practical, up-to-the-minute sports courses taught by well-qualified professors. All our professors have multiple degrees and are professors today.

The quality of our courses in all cases is high because our professors have experience in the sports business, enjoy teaching it, and have no administration overload. That allows our continuing education program to react faster to market needs and enable students to acquire much needed knowledge and skills faster and more efficiently than traditional degree programs.

USE Continuing Education today is a non-credit program. You cannot transfer “credit” to another school until USE gets appropriate certifications in the future. However, in our non-credit programs we are able to customize the courses immediately and to a far greater extent. The result is that our courses are unique to us and you can be proud to put it in your resume.
