What to Expect

Occupational extension courses are designed to improve individual efficiencies as well as train and develop marketable job skills that lead to employment or promotional opportunities. These courses cover a wide range of topics in areas such as vocational trades, occupational healthcare, bio works, computer technology, substitute teacher training, heavy equipment operator, and SERV Safe. The college is continuously researching and seeking the latest employment trends to educate and train individuals to meet the employment needs of the community.
