HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University is offering non-credit courses for both career and personal enrichment this spring, and registration is now underway.
New spring 2014 non-credit career enrichment courses offered include Next Step for Your Career and Primavera P6 Introduction. New courses in personal enrichment include Introduction to Better Living through Nutrition, Investing Fundamentals and Strategies, Advanced Novel Writing and Henry VIII and His Six Wives.
Director of Non-Credit Programs Charlotte Collins said that although no college credis are earned for these programs, students do have the opportunity to earn continuing education units (CEUs) for career enrichment courses.
"Workforce and professional development continues to be a focus for 2014 course offerings" Collins said. "Our courses are designed to build participants' resumes and to assist organizations with professional development through customized training.
"Our career enrichment courses underscore the value of continuing education, especially for top demand occupations in Louisiana," Collins added. "By providing continuing education units (CEU's), Southeastern's non-credit courses assist participants with their personal career portfolio and organizations with a nationally recognized standard for training."
Southeastern offers a wide variety of non-credit courses taught by Southeastern faculty and qualified professional instructors. A variety of academic and recreational camps are also offered during the summer, including Zoom into Careers.
Collins said that non-credit courses such as SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management) Essentials of HR Management, Notary Test Prep, ACT Test Prep, Financial Strategies for Successful Retirement, Makeup for Cinema, Adobe Photoshop for Photography, and Introduction to Screenwriting, to name a few, are still offered.
Classes are offered at Southeastern's main campus in Hammond, the Livingston Literacy and Technology Center in Walker, and the St. Tammany Center in Mandeville. Classes can also be customized for groups of five or more, Collins said.
