The ACS Department of Professional Education offers a variety of courses designed to help chemical scientists and technicians keep current in today’s competitive marketplace. We believe that finding the training you need to excel at your job or help you find a new one shouldn’t be that hard. That is why we offer in-person Short Courses, both live and OnDemand Online Courses, the ability to bring a course On-Site to your location, and our newest product, Sci-MindTM, which combines elements of all of our products to give you a more personalized learning experience, to help fit your schedule and budget.

Short Courses are presented seminar-style, over anywhere from 1 to 5 days, and are taught by professionals who are excellent teachers as well as scientists. Courses are offered in convenient locations around the country.

Upcoming Courses

Online Short Courses are live, instructor-led courses that meet online over a period of weeks. With small class sizes and expert instruction, ACS Online Short Courses give you the opportunity to address your unique challenges and learn at your pace.

ACS Professional Education knows how busy you are. So we've recently launched our OnDemand catalog of Online Short Courses just for you. All of the modules are recorded for you to view at your convenience.

Sci-Mind™ is a customizable, online environment integrating traditional classroom discussions, lectures, and activities with social media tools for flexible access and learning. Replacing pre-determined syllabi, all Sci-Mind™ curricula, assignments, activities and even experts are customized according to the needs of each cohort and rely on using real-life situations faced at work to illustrate lesson plans.
