SMC Community Education Offers 170 Spring Classes:

More than 170 classes, workshops, and tours, including several new offerings, will be part of SMC Community Education’s upcoming spring semester.

Online registration opened Monday with classes beginning Feb. 18. Registration is still open for the current winter semester that also began Monday with more than 60 classes, workshops, and tours.

Alice Meyering, Program Coordinator of Community & Contract Education, said there was a class for every interest.

“From art to Zumba, we’ll help keep your body, mind, and creative expression healthy and challenged,” Meyering said.

Meyering said the program is particularly pleased to offer a new day tour to Pasadena city and tea lunch in the spring – as well as “Prevailing Wage: Tips You Need Before You Bid.”

That debuts the series on “Secrets of Public Works Projects,” designed to prepare contractors to successfully bid on public works. “Prevailing Wage” begins this Saturday, Jan. 11.

In addition, she said, the program is grouping together some of its course offerings into series of classes, including the “Organic Living Series,” composed of “Organic Gardening” and “Healthy Living,” as well as “Jumpstart Your Career Series,” which would enhance any career-searching effort with “Social Media for Job Seekers” and “MS Word and MS Excel for the Job Market.”

Other new classes this spring include “Landscape Painting,” “Resin Jewelry,” “Cookie Bouquets,” and “Yin Yoga.” And looking ahead to the summer, Community Education is offering several new summer camps for youth ages 12 to 17 that are available for online registration that began Jan. 6.

“And if that weren’t enough, we will have an extensive collection of Professional Development classes in spring,” Meyering said. These courses are in many disciplines, including business and finance, health professions, social work, entrepreneurship, and more.

Particularly notable are the real estate courses, which will pave the way for a successful career in the red-hot Southern California housing market, she said
