Create your best life at NCC!
Welcome to the Continuing Education and Workforce Development Spring 2020 catalog of non-credit classes
and certificates.

This catalog showcases a wealth of programming for learners of all ages – from children (grades 1-12) in our
College for Kids programs, to workers seeking professional advancement or a career change, to people who
just want to have fun exploring a new hobby.

Chances are, if you’ve sold a house, booked a cruise or needed emergency health care, your realtor, travel
consultant or EMT learned their professional skills at NCC!

Our instructors are industry professionals and certified teachers who deliver quality programming.

NCC offers Workforce Development classes and industry certifications in fields including business, health care,
early childhood education, public safety, real estate and information technology.

We also offer classes that serve as a bridge from non-credit to credit-bearing college degree or certificate
programs. There is truly something for everyone.

I hope you will take a moment to explore our catalog and share it with a friend. You’ll be glad you did.

Sincerely,

Cheryl C. De Vonish, J.D.
