Frequently Asked Questions

          • How do I register for a Course?

            Registration for continuing education courses at Loyola University Maryland is available online by using the online course catalog. Prior to enrolling in a continuing education course, students are encouraged to review all registration information.

          • What accreditation and certification is associated with ASPIRE content?

            All content found on the ASPIRE storefront awards non-credit, continuing education units (CEUs). Very few select courses provide academic credit. All of the materials are approved by Loyola University Maryland as evidence of professional study and a record will be kept at the university of learner progress within the ASPIRE office. Loyola ASPIRE follows the IACET standards for the quality of continuing education, and a significant number of courses are available for IACET CEUs. Each course will offer a CEU certificate which will state all accreditations and certifications that are earned upon completion of the content. For further questions about certifications for individual courses please refer to the course description or contact the ASPIRE office. Participants are encouraged to contact their organizations and jurisdictions in advance to ensure the material provided and the certificates offered will satisfy certification or regulatory compliance.
