Register Now For Fall Classes At SMC Community Education:

With a vibrant offering of more than 190 classes, workshops and tours, SMC Community Education’s fall session is now open for registration.

The fall session – which begins August 31 – will include several new offerings. An Early Bird Discount of 10 percent is being offered on most Arts and Photography courses through Sept. 7.

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

“We’re particularly excited about 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 launch a brand new Customer Service Academy, which encompasses 10 modules that are guaranteed to improve skills in a field in which job opportunities are projected to grow 13 percent from 2012 to 2022,” she added.

“Of course, we also offer a wide range of wonderful 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 Sumi-e Painting, several jewelry making classes, Ayurveda, Night Lights @ Santa Monica Pier (Photography), On Set Production, Total Body Workout and more.

“Many of these new courses are a result of student demand,” she said. “Similarly, because of the great response to our tours, we have doubled the number of tours we are offering compared to last fall.”

Specifically, the new tours this fall are Go Ahead, Bake My Day! L.A. Bakery Tour; Cereal Baron’s Estate Tour & Arabian Horse Show with Japanese & Rose Gardens & Buffet Lunch; Huntington Library; and Adamson House & Serra Retreat in Malibu.

To register, call (310) 434-3400 or go to http://commed.smc.edu. You can also email commed@smc.edu.
