CLARKSDALE – Would you like to get involved with new hobby or trade without making a big investment of your time or money? Great news—Coahoma Community College is now offering individuals the opportunity to learn a wide-range of new skills this Fall with Short-Term Adult Evening Training.

CCC’s Division of Career and Technical Education is offering six, non-credit certificate programs to interested adults, 18-and-older, at little or no cost.  Classes being offered include: Cake Decorating, Basic Industrial Electricity, Basic Plumbing, Forklift Certification, ServSafe Food Safety Training and Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3).

“In an effort to appeal to the working class, most of our short-term adult evening programs are offered after 6 p.m. and on Saturday’s,” said CCC Career and Technical Education Associate Dean Lucy Chatman-Scott.

Class registration will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12, in the Sigmon Building, with the exception of the IC3 course whose registration will be held the first day of training Saturday, Sept. 10.

The classes have a minimum enrollment of 12 and range from two to six weeks. Once completed, participants will be awarded with a certificate and given the opportunity to showcase their new skills. CEU’s are also available.

According to Chatman-Scott, the short-term trainings can be beneficial in helping individuals find a job, get a promotion, or earn more money.

“There are a surprising number of fields that one can enter without completing long degree programs,” she said. “Completing a short-term job training program can be just the ticket for an individual to gain access to a rewarding career field.”

She said the Division of Career and Technical Education is also open to offering classes tailored to fit the needs of local businesses.

“Short-term offerings are endless,” said Scott-Chatman. “If individuals and/or businesses are interested in a particular short-term offering, they can contact us and we will try our best to make it happen.”

For additional registration information or questions, contact Chatman-Scott at (662) 621-4217 or lcscott@coahomaccc.edu.
