MCCC's Center for Continuing Studies
Offers Expanded Online Career Courses

8/11/11


West Windsor, N.J. -- The Center for Continuing Studies (CCS) at Mercer County Community College is fast becoming one of the "go to" places for adults seeking online classes to enhance careers, learn new skills and pursue personal interests. In addition to its many noncredit courses offered on MCCC's West Windsor campus, CCS offers hundreds of affordable online courses taught by experts in their fields. Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas, supplementary links, and more.

CCS's initial partnership with the online teaching company Ed2Go has grown to include hundreds of classes that start monthly and run for six weeks. According to Read Langan, assistant director of CCS, Mercer is one of Ed2Go's top 25 course providers in the nation. Topics range from business management and computer training, to health care and the legal field. Writing classes focus on business, creative and grant writing, as well as publishing. A full list of Mercer's Ed2Go classes is available here.

This fall, Mercer will partner with the Learning Resources Network (LERN) for two new online career courses. "Green Buildings and Preparing for the LEED Green Associate Exam," to be offered Sept. 6-Oct. 28, will give students an introduction to sustainability and the green building process and prepare them to take the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate exam.

The "Virtual Meeting Planner Certificate," to be offered Sept. 6-Nov. 15, will provide expertise in planning and marketing virtual meetings and seminars, which are fast becoming a staple of continuing education in the workplace.

Langan notes that CCS will continue to explore options to help make learning convenient for adults. "Our goal is to supplement our traditional on-campus classes with online courses that adults can complete from any computer at any time of the day or night."
