Further, continuing education may include such educational services like in-service training for teachers on various subjects that they teach. This training can include methods of examining a student, teaching aids and such topics that are useful to the teachers. Continuing education can also cover university professors and university staff in their field of work. Training for health workers on preventive medicine, family health, family planning and related subjects that are useful to a health worker are also considered continuing education. Other professionals like accountants may under training on accounting standards and taxation based on latest fiscal policies of a country. There is corporate-sponsored training.
