In a context of constant transformation, FCNAUP seeks to meet the training needs of diverse audiences, with or without higher academic training. Thus, Lifelong Learning training is divided into the following types (by Regulation 1059/2020):
- Continuing Training Courses: are subject to evaluation and crediting for certification purposes; they do not presuppose initial graduate training, although they may require as minimum conditions the capacity to attend higher education or, when it is at post-graduate level, its possession;
- Continuing Training Units: training units, included or not in a course, under the conditions defined in the previous point;
- Open Training Courses: do not require initial graduate training; the course is not subject to credit for ECTS.
