New course offerings were recently announced for personal and professional development classes.
“We have a wide variety of new classes for people to explore in the next few months. Whether they want to acquire a new skill, learn about a new computer operating system or take an industry certification test, we offer an affordable way for everyone to enjoy learning something new,” said Titus Lester, Meridian’s Coordinator of Short Courses.
New classes for summer 2017 include electric pressure cooking, backyard chickens, UAS photography, basic balloon art and computer classes that are customized for both business and home users.
In addition to offering full-time career training for high school and adult students, customized business solutions for local industries, and assistance for budding entrepreneurs, Meridian also serves as a place where district residents can expand their skills and explore their interests.
“We’re always looking for new course offerings and ways to improve the classes that we teach on a regular basis. We try to make coming to Meridian for classes as easy as possible,” Lester said.
Each semester Meridian offers approximately 100 courses. Many of the professional development courses have classes during both the day and evening hours, while personal enrichment classes meet one or two nights a week. If time is a factor, online training is also available.
Quana Selvey and her grandson Nate Tucker learned how to make sushi in a recent short course at Meridian. Each semester Meridian offers a variety of short courses that focus on fun and learning.
