        SPRING 2021
Welcome!
Welcome to the Continuing Education and Workforce Development Spring
2021 catalog of non-credit classes and certificates.
We are excited that you are considering taking classes this Spring, 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 certifica-
tions 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 pan-
demic. Day-to-day life as it existed before the pandemic changed drastically, and individuals and institutions adapted to new prac-
tices 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 – fac-
ulty, 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 required.
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 institutions
reserve the right to adapt the format of any class to an entirely online/distance learning modality as public health conditions
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 environment,
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.
