Russian term or phrase: повышение квалификации
повышение квалификации (курсы of)
Dmitry K.
advanced training course
Explanation:
advanced training course

Несмотря на существование в английском языке целого ряда вариантов перевода словосочетания «курсы повышения квалификации», таких как “refresher course”, “extension course”, “university extension”, “residency”, “retraining”, каждый из которых используется в соответствии с контекстом (см. их определения ниже), мне кажется что это словосочетание, во всей своей полноте, наиболее адекватно передается как английское "advanced training course". Это словосочетание существует, о чем свидетельствуют найденные мною сайты, однако на сегодняшний день оно не занесено в большинство словарей.

Тем не менее, последний выбор варианта перевода зависит от точного контекста. Для этих целей я привожу некоторые определения. Все эти словосочетания, в дополнение к “advanced training course”, могут переводится как «курсы повышения квалификации»:

refresher course,
a study course serving as a review of previous education.

extension courses,
(in many universities and colleges) a program for persons not regularly enrolled as students, frequently provided through evening classes or classes in off-campus centers, or by correspondence.

university extension,
a system by which an institution provides educational programs, as evening classes,
for students otherwise unable to attend.

Есть еще слово “residency”, которое используется, главным образом, как «курсы повышения квалификации преподавателей».

Advanced Training Courses


Explanation:
Or further training courses. This is proposed by the electronic dictionary Lingvo 6.0. Everything that belongs to professional development (raising the level of one's skill). I have translated a number of such certificates to and from English. Advanced level is well understood abroad. Suffice it to say that in, say, language courses, there are such major grades of training: initial, intermediate and advanced.

extension courses, refresher course


Explanation:
These are the exact phrases Lingvo 6.0 provides for kursy povysheniya kvalifikatsii. Other terms you might consider:
- курсы усовершенствования advanced training courses; refresher course ед.
- курсы усовершенствования специалистов сущ.; мн. postgraduate courses. This phrase I've encountered most often in my experience. This (i.e. postgraduate education), for example, is frequently required by employers for successful candidates for a position.
