MCCC's Center for Continuing Studies to Host Multiple Information Sessions in January

12/6/11


West Windsor, N.J. - MCCC's Center for Continuing Studies (CCS) will host four information sessions in January, one for adults seeking general advice and course descriptions for new careers and three others designed for career preparation and enhancement in specific, high demand fields. All sessions are free and are held at The Conference Center on the college's West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

For those exploring new careers, planning to reenter the workforce, or seeking insights into emerging career trends, "Back to School Night for Adults" will be held Wednesday, Jan. 11, starting promptly at 6 p.m. CCS staff and instructors will be on hand to offer individualized information and advice about short-term, noncredit certificate programs and classes. Mercer's myriad options include computer training from beginner to advanced, business and management, numerous health careers, and continuing teacher education, plus hundreds of courses online. Many classes are offered for continuing education units. Attendees will receive a coupon waiving the $10 registration fee for spring courses.

On Wednesday, Jan. 4, starting at 5:30 p.m., the Center will host a required information session for the Certified Nurse Aide program. This 90-hour course is approved by the N.J. Department of Health and Senior Services and prepares students for the certification exam. Twelve sessions will meet Saturdays from Feb. 11-May 5, including clinical sessions at a local senior care facility.

On Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 5:30 p.m., the Center invites those with a bachelor's degree in the sciences or related fields to learn more about its "Clinical Development and Regulatory Affairs" certificate program, which prepares students for careers in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. The program, which starts off with "Foundations of Clinical Development" Jan. 18-Mar. 14, includes three required classes and one elective. Through an articulation agreement with Drexel University, students may earn up to nine graduate credits for Drexel's master's degree program in Clinical Research Organization and Management.

On Thursday, Jan. 26 at 5:30 p.m., the center will host an information session for "New Pathways to Teaching in New Jersey," an alternate route program to teacher certification for those who already have a bachelor's and/or graduate degree.
No preregistration is required for information sessions. For further information and/or to register for noncredit courses, call (609) 570-3311 or e-mail ComEd@mccc.edu. The January-May course bulletin is available online at www.mccc.edu/ccs or by calling the office for a print copy.
