Continuing Education and Workforce Development - Norwalk Community College - Norwalk ...
Welcome to the Continuing Education and Workforce Development Fall 2020 catalog of non-credit classes and certificates.
We are excited that you are considering taking classes this Fall, and have developed a robust schedule of online, on-ground and hybrid
classes. Most will meet at specific times as well as incorporate independent course work.
This catalog displays a wealth of programming from workers seeking professional advancement or a career change, to people who just
want to explore a new hobby. Chances are, if you have 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, and 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 will be glad
you did.

   Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Disclaimer
   Beginning March 2020, Connecticut along with the rest of the United States suffered the effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus
   pandemic. Day-to-day life as it existed before the pandemic changed drastically, and individuals and institutions adapted to new
   practices and behaviors. Normative actions now include wearing facial masks, maintaining social distance, and working and
   learning remotely. Learning about and adherence to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance has become a
   way of life. As we plan for the next academic year, so much is uncertain, including the continuing threat of COVID-19.

   The Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) must adapt to meet this reality. Going forward, it is up to all of us –
   faculty, staff and students – to do our part to ensure our campus community stays as healthy and safe as possible. This is a
   shared responsibility, and every member of our community must adhere to national, state, and local health guidelines and
   requirements, and adhere to those measures Norwalk Community College deems safe and appropriate for the campus. This
   will include social distancing, wearing masks or other facial coverings, not reporting to class or work if sick, and isolating when

   Although Norwalk Community College is readily developing a schedule of courses that include some in-class and on-ground
   instruction, no one knows what the future may hold. In the case of an outbreak of the coronavirus or other illness, the institu-
   tions reserve the right to adapt the format of any class to an entirely online/distance learning modality as public health condi-
   tions warrant. Such change will not result in any increase or decrease of tuition and fees. We all understand that tuition and fees
   are in exchange for learning, academic credit, and certain non-academic services regardless of whether taught on-ground, in a
   hybrid environment or entirely remotely.

   Most important to CSCU and Norwalk Community College is the health, safety and welfare of every member of its community.
   Yet, despite campus efforts to comply with health and safety guidelines, it is not possible to guarantee a disease free environ-
   ment, or to guarantee that campuses will not close and return to an online-only learning environment. These are the realities of
   working and learning during a pandemic. If you choose to return to campus during the pandemic, you accept that you are willing
   to do your part to keep the campus safe and acknowledge that you may be required to complete your course work in a remote
   learning environment.

   The Norwalk Community College community is looking forward to welcoming you back.
