CLARKSDALE – Individuals seeking to expand their skill-sets will have the opportunity to do so thanks to a wide-range of short-term programs that will be offered to the general public at Coahoma Community College this spring.

CCC’s Division of Career and Technical Education is offering ten, non-credit certificate programs to interested adults, 18 and older, at little or no cost. Classes being offered include: Flower Arrangement, Ballroom Dancing, Cake Decorating, Culinary Arts, Basic Industrial Electricity, Basic Plumbing, Basic Photography, Automotive Paint Refinishing, ServSafe Food Safety Training and Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3).

“Whether you’ve been itching to learn ballroom dance, master cake decorating or pick up some basic electrical or plumbing skills, this is an exciting opportunity for those in the Clarksdale community and surrounding areas,” said Vice President of Career and Technical Education Anne Shelton-Clark.

Class registration is slated for 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27, in the Sigmon Building, with the exception of the IC3 course whose registration will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, during the class’s first meeting.

The classes have a minimum enrollment of 12 and will be held one evening each week beginning in February, ranging from four to 12 weeks. Once completed, participants will be awarded with a certificate and given the opportunity to showcase their new skills.

“We’re proud to be able to extend our training to the general public, and we’re encouraging everyone to come out and take advantage of the classes we are offering,” said Clark.
