Registration Opens For SMC Communication Education Spring Classes:

As SMC Community Education’s vibrant Winter Session gets under way today, it is also looking ahead to an even heartier Spring Semester – with more than 170 classes, workshops and tours, including several new offerings. Registration for both sessions is now open, and spring classes begin Feb. 21.

With a theme of career training and professional development, Community Ed is offering a wide range of courses in spring designed to help students advance their careers.

“We’re particularly excited to launch our Paralegal Academy, which offers professional paralegal certification that opens the doors to high paying careers in as little as 11 months,” said Alice Meyering, Program Coordinator of Community & Contract Education.

“We’re also pleased to partner with the SMC main campus to offer the brand new ‘Career Coach,’ a free online program available to the public that will assist users find training programs at SMC, compare wages and employment trends, find “live jobs” in their fields, and build a professional resume in minutes.”

Marking another first, Community Ed will be offering an Open House for five consecutive days – Jan. 26-30 – that will give attendees a chance to meet instructors and staff, receive discounts, enter into a drawing for a free class and receive a surprise gift. Each Open House will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bundy Campus, Room 112, 3171 S. Bundy Dr., Los Angeles.

“Of course, we also offer a wide range of fun enrichment classes that will guide our students to creative expression, healthy minds and bodies, language skills and much more,” Meyering added.

Meyering said among the mix of new courses are Ayurveda Spring Cleanse Retreat, Dressing from the Inside Out©, Conversational Italian, and Director’s Journal: How to Develop Your Directorial Style.

“Many of these new courses are a result of student demand,” she said. “Similarly, because of the great response to our tours, we will be offering two in the spring and adding a greater number of tours in future semesters.”

Specifically, the two new tours this spring are Santa Barbara Orchids by Rail with Coast Starlight Train and The Bold & the Beautiful: Carlsbad Village Faire & Coastal Gardens with Champagne Brunch.
