MCCC's Center for Continuing Studies Enhances Skills and Careers this Fall; Information Session to be Held Aug. 19

7/22/10


West Windsor, N.J. - The Center for Continuing Studies at Mercer County Community College has announced an array of fall courses designed to give adults a convenient, concentrated route to enhanced skills and new careers. Among the career programs are business management, computer technology, health care, education, and green building. Classes for personal interest range from cooking and fitness to writing, languages, personal finance and more.

Taught by experts in their fields, many of the career courses are offered as certificate series, but also can be taken on an individual basis. Most classes meet in the evening and on weekends on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

A "Back to School Night for Adults" information session will be held on Thursday, Aug. 19 starting at 6 p.m. at the MCCC Conference Center. Staff and instructors will be on hand to describe programs, answer questions, and offer career advice. Attendees will receive a 10% discount coupon off tuition for a fall course. (No reservation is required for this session.)

The Center's innovative Green Future Management certificate program has been compressed into four modules set to begin Sept. 21 and continue through Dec. 8. (Courses may be taken on an individual basis.) Building on its focus on the green movement, the Center will offer exam prep courses for three LEED® certifications. A new Veterinary Assistant certificate program includes two courses this fall: "Introduction to the Veterinary Profession" from Sept. 14-Oct. 14, and "Veterinary Nursing Skills" from Oct. 26-Jan. 20. Two additional classes will be presented in the spring.

The Center continues to offer hundreds of classes online. Most run for six weeks and include 24 or more hours of instruction. Classes can be accessed from participants' home computers any time day or night. A list of online courses is available at here.
