The Certificate in Adult Education focuses on: understanding adult education learning theory and philosophies; becoming aware of the diverse needs of adult learners; and, learning and applying the methodologies and strategies needed to teach adults.

The CAE consists of 9 courses (36 semester hours). Three (six semester hour) courses are offered by Holland College, and six (three semester hour) courses are offered by UPEI. Holland College and UPEI offer the required courses on a yearly basis and the electives over a two-year period.

All courses are offered either fully online, or face-to-face in one-week summer institute formats or in the late afternoon, early evening or weekend hours, to try to accommodate working professionals. Most face-to-face courses have some blended delivery, or online component. Courses are offered in each of the three academic terms.
