MTC has recently announced new offerings for personal and professional development short courses.

“We have a wide variety of classes for people to explore in the next few months. Whether they want to learn calligraphy or floral design or explore clean eating or photography, we offer an affordable way for everyone to enjoy something new,” said Titus Lester, Meridian’s Coordinator of Short-Term Courses.

New classes for summer 2018 also include a free series on home automation. Courses cover topics such as understanding today’s home technology and infrastructure options, tech systems and products for outdoor spaces, supporting green lifestyles with technology systems, and automated shade and window treatment systems. Classes in this series are offered at no cost, but attendees must register.

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 hundreds of 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.
