New Year, New You: Meridian Technology Center Offers New Short Courses Focused on Personal and Professional Development
January 8, 2019

Meridian Technology Center has recently announced new personal and professional development short courses.

“We have a wide variety of new classes for people to explore in the next few months. Whether they simply want to have fun or if they are interested in enrolling in a short course to prepare for a full-time career, we have several new classes to choose from,” said Titus Lester, Meridian’s Coordinator of Short-Term Courses.

Some of the new classes for 2019 include Drafting Your Own Will, Forming an LLC, Going Green: Organic Lawn Care, Low-Light Photography, Beginning Spanish parts one and two, and Basic Photo and Video Composition.

The Computer Services Training division will offer hands-on social media workshop on January 23 that features technology strategist Crystal Washington. Washington will connect with the group via satellite to share valuable tips and techniques to help businesses leverage their social media tools. Attendees will then take part in a facilitated session to work on their business’s social media plan. Washington will re-join the training for a Q&A session to address obstacles experienced in creating their social media plan.

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.

“It’s a new year and the perfect time to set a goal to learn a new skill. 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 hundreds of courses. Many of the professional development short courses have classes during both the day and evening hours, and often meet one or two times during the week. If time is a factor, online training is also available.

Meridian has a new set of classes each spring, summer and fall. For a complete listing of this semester’s courses visit If there is a short course that you would like to see offered at Meridian, contact Titus Lester at or (405) 377-3333.
