Another option for training is the continuing studies program offered at the community colleges. Courses in this program are designed with the mature and focused student in mind. Continuing studies courses are shorter in length than certificate programs and usually have fewer prerequisites and admissions requirements. Many are designed to prepare individuals to enter a specific career, earn a certification, or prepare for licensure in a particular profession.
At most community colleges throughout the state, training courses are offered in Business and Management, Child Care, Health Care, Computers, Commercial Drawing, Real Estate and Personal Enrichment.
Continuing studies courses vary among the community colleges. For more information on what's available at the community college that interests you, call the college or an MEOC counselor/specialist.
