Professional Development

"To begin is the most important part of any quest, and by far the most courageous.' ~Plato

Each year, thousands of professionals look to Professional Development at the University of Waterloo for corporate training and professional development opportunities that will provide the certification and skills needed to build and succeed in your career.


Most in-class courses are offered at our training facility at 195 Columbia St. West, Waterloo, Ontario. Our building is East Campus 3 (EC3). Ample parking is available in Lot Q beside our building. Parking instructions will be sent with your course registration.


Most courses run from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. A light breakfast, snacks and lunch are provided. Please notify us in advance if you have any special dietary needs.

For specific course start dates, please see the course schedule.


You can register online, by phone or in person. If enrolling by phone, or in person, please allow 1-2 business days to process your registration. Once there is sufficient enrolment in your chosen course, a confirmation email will be sent to you.

New in-class courses are added several times throughout the year. Please visit us regularly for updates, or subscribe to receive our printed course calendar or monthly eAlert.

Completion Requirements

You must attend at least 80% of the course to receive a certificate of completion. Therefore you are strongly encouraged to attend the entire course by arriving on time and staying until the end of the instruction time. This maximizes your learning and is least disruptive to the instructor and other participants.

It's your future. Make it happen!
