Welcome to the NOCCCD School of Continuing Education
by Greg Schulz, Ed.D., Provost
Welcome to the School of Continuing Education (SCE) 2014 Spring Term. There are many exciting opportunities that await you. If you are a returning student, I want to thank you for choosing SCE to continue your education and training. If you’ve never taken a class with us before, I invite you to enroll and find out what so many students have discovered. Our instructors are knowledgeable, student-centered, and passionate about their subject area. Our staff is committed to providing you with the assistance and support you need to complete the next step in your educational or career journey. Our collective goal is to help you succeed.
This term, we are pleased to feature several new classes in our Disabled Student Programs and Services as well as our Kids’ College & Teen Program. One new course is also a timeless classic: Simplifying Your Life Through Organization. In addition, we have a comprehensive web and mobile design certificate program through our digital media center. In just 18-weeks, students can start to learn to design websites for smartphones, tablets, PCs and MACs. Check out all of the details related to the program starting on page 18 of this class schedule. I look forward to seeing you at one of our many community locations or three main Centers. Let’s have a great spring term.
