How good is elite continuing education?

I believe it is good to pursue self-development, not just for your career but for personal growth too. I have previously used apa continuing education for self-learning resources on issues regarding my career. I would, however, like to explore other alternatives available. While looking for Florida continuing education courses, I came across elite continuing education.

How good is this learning platform?

Elite ContinuingEducation is significant in the CE industry and offers a wide range of programs in a majority of professions. Let me briefly explain how it works. You first select your occupation or any job you are venturing in; then you choose your state.

Not all courses are offered in all states. Therefore, once you have selected a suitable course, you will find a drop-down menu in the box for state selection. You are required to choose from a list of states mentioned to make it easier for you to access classes. For example, you can select CE in Florida if you live there.

I will give both pros and cons of Elite. This review is based on my experience and other customers’ experience.


  • High-quality courses: courses are top-notch and accredited by relevant bodies. So, you don’t need to worry about wasting your money on a course that will not help you.
  • Physical classroom experience: you attend an actual classroom and sit for exams at the end of it. This experience gives a personal touch to learning.
  • Money-back guarantee: If you take a course and for one reason or the other, you don’t like it, you can get a full refund. There is only one condition to this offer; you must not have taken the exam. Once you have gone through the course material and you change your mind about the course, don’t sit for the test and request your full payment for the classes.
  • Classes are available in many states: you can find centers in your place of residence so that you don’t have to travel far.
  • A broad area of expertise: there are courses in a wide range of areas including psychology. Here, you can find study materials such as those you find in APA ContinuingEducation.
  • Certification on completion: you get a certificate once you complete your exams.


  • Slow/poor customer service response: the organization has not-so-good customer service. Many customer complaints and queries go unanswered. Seek help early enough to avoid last minute disappointments.
  • Expensive: compared to other sites offering the same services, I would say Elite is quite expensive.
  • Unclear/misleading advertising: some pertinent information may not be found on the course offer. For example, a course may be advertised as a 3-day learning event without further specification. Later, you may find out that the learning hours are less than 12.

I would recommend Udemy courses as opposed to elite continuing education. My reasons for this are:

  • The best courses are the first you see: based on the reviews; high-quality study courses are the ones you come across first.
  • You can read customer reviews for a specific course: users can post their experience in a course they have undertaken.
  • Very affordably priced: Udemy probably offers the most affordable classes on the internet hence its popularity.
  • Once you purchase a course, you will enjoy unlimited access: this means that you can access any updates or changes made to it.
  • Udemy offers regular promotions and discounts on courses: you can get $20 courses for as low as $9 when discounted.
  • You can view the tutor's profile: a tutor’s details are posted along with the class they tutor.
  • It has hundreds of courses.
  • Certification is available upon completion.
