COC Community Education Program Workforce Ready Classes in 2010

The College of the Canyons Community Education (CE) program will shift its focus in the New Year and offer more classes directed toward improving an individual’s professional skills.
Traditionally, CE has offered a wide variety of courses from arts and crafts, cooking, and tennis.  As a result of the current economic climate, however, many of these “non-necessity” classes have experienced low enrollment while classes building one’s professional skills such as typing, and Microsoft Excel have significantly increased enrollment.
After analyzing recent registration trends and responding to community feedback, a decision was made to offer more classes aimed at helping community members develop or improve their job skills.
“Our goal is to provide affordable and accessible training through Community Education in a short time frame,” said Gina Bogna director of job development at the college.  “We believe we are providing the classes and opportunities our community members want and need to build their skills.”
For instances, community members interested in furthering their careers can take a 27-week pharmacy technician beginning in March 2010 or they can enroll in two-week training courses in Microsoft Word and Excel programs.  Certified food handling and online traffic school courses are also available.
Education to Go (Ed2Go) program offers hundreds of online courses in business, finance, computer programming, languages, Web design, writing and career development. Ed2Go courses are six-weeks long and are taught by instructors through lessons, quizzes and hands-on assignments.
