The idea of life-long learning is a quite prominent element in the Bologna process. Hence universities are requested to play an active role in implementation of lifelong learning. Examples from Switzerland are addressed with main emphasis on HAFL. The presented cases are both “certificate education programmes”, which are meant exclusively for people who graduated some years ago and who are in an active employment relationship. The first example gives a brief overview for an agricultural life-long learning offer at HAFL, the second case describes a bit more in detail a forestry initiative. In general, these certificate education programmes are useful and attractive “vehicles” for universities to realise attractive life-long learning options for jobholders. Some key factors like structural success features, but also adapted learning and teaching types are described.
