PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Classes designed to help you develop new skills or expand your current ones. These classes are designed to help you develop the necessary workplace skills and a career development plan.

ENTREPRENEURIAL TRAINING

With a long-time commitment to helping local business people, we offer courses to support the business skills needed for a successful business.

ON THE NET

Online classes are especially convenient for those with work, school, or childcare commitments, physical disabilities, limited access to transportation, or other circumstances that make it difficult to participate in a traditional classroom setting. Our online business and professional courses are designed to increase your success in the business world.

Career Development and Professional Training

  • Hands-on Workshops
  • Online Courses
  • Certification

The mission of SMC Extension is to offer the broader community opportunities to participate in career-focused lifelong learning courses through a not-for-credit format.

A selected number of professional development training programs offer industry-recognized certificates of completion. However, not-for-credit courses do not earn college credit and transcripts and grades are not maintained.

Leveraging educational resources to deliver workforce training resources to the local community is the over-arching goal of the SMC Extension program.
