Distance Education

Through a partnership with Northwood University, the University of the Aftermarket offers online university-level classes on a variety of business topics. These classes are the exact same classes offered to Northwood University undergraduate students and are taught by Northwood faculty. It is a convenient way to improve your professional skills while earning CEUs toward your professional designations.

Courses are typically eight weeks long and conducted online. Courses do not meet at a specific time, so participants may log in and participate when it’s convenient. Courses are pass/no pass and only CEU, non-degree credit is awarded. Students do not take tests, but they are expected to complete all course requirements.
