COVID-19 Continuing Education
What will Continuing Education classes look like in the Fall and Winter terms?
Continuing Education is offering online, hybrid, and in-person classes this fall and winter. With sensitivity to the populations that we serve, we are offering primarily online classes, which include both online live (typically offered in a Zoom or WebEx format) and online self-paced (offered through our partnerships with Ed2Go and MindEdge). Students may view class requirements, including technology specific to each individual course on our online class listings.
Students who enroll in online live classes will enjoy the opportunity to learn with local instructors at a pre-determined time, in the comfort of their own environment. Online self-paced classes are available according to a student’s own schedule rather than at a pre-determined time. Hybrid classes are a combination of in-person (in the classroom) and online.
Students can contact Continuing Education at 541-383-7270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How will Continuing Education classes be different from those offered before the coronavirus pandemic?
In-person classes will require the use of face masks and physical distancing will be observed. Classrooms will be cleaned using enhanced protocols. Some classes requiring close contact, such as CPR, will require a temperature check before admittance to the classroom.
What has changed at the Small Business Development Center as a result of the COVID-19 reopening precautions? What should I expect?
COCC’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) continues to be open, but we are operating remotely. Confidential business advising continues to be available at no charge, and advisers can connect with you via phone or video conferencing. Any potential 'in-person' advising will be arranged according to the most current College policy, at the discretion of the adviser and the client, with appropriate safety measures in place. If you'd like to make a business advising appointment, the fastest way to get the necessary details on file so that our center can advise you at no charge would be to visit our 'Register For Counseling' page. As soon as we receive your registration request, we will make sure to reach out via phone or email!
If you are looking for business-related classes through the SBDC this fall and winter, we will be offering a mix of online and in-person classes. You can see find the list of available SBDC classes here.
