Co-Lin offers free skills training online

Individuals looking for an edge in the workplace have a new opportunity, thanks to Copiah-Lincoln Community College and ed2go.

Co-Lin’s Workforce Education has partnered with ed2go, an industry leader in online learning, to offer non-college credit, professional development courses that can be utilized to develop new or upgrade existing skills. Other courses are also available for teacher continuing education credits.

“This partnership is a natural fit,” said Stephenie Sullivan, Workforce Center director. “We understand the value of career training in today’s ever-changing job market and providing a flexible option to do so.”

Co-Lin will offer 10 free workplace skills online courses for a limited time. Through June 30, the public can take advantage of these courses that can be completed on the student’s schedule.

Topics include customer service, management, internet marketing, communications and job searching. The classes (each valued between $95 and $115) contain 24 hours of material and will be accessible for 90 days. Those interested may view the comprehensive list and register at www.colin.edu/freeworkplaceskills.

“We believe that having the right skills and knowing how to utilize them is vital for both job seekers and those who are employed. These classes include a mix of skills for today’s changing job market,” said Sullivan. “This opportunity is made possible by our partner ed2go and registration will end June 30.”
