Beginning this month, the Pulaski Technical College Business and Industry Center will offer a wide variety of non-credit community education classes.
"Community education classes are a vital part of any community college, and we are delighted to offer this opportunity to the people of central Arkansas," says Mary Ann Shope, vice president for economic development for Pulaski Tech. "The pursuit of lifelong learning is not only personally enriching, many of these courses present important skills applicable to the workplace."
Most courses are held at the Business and Industry Center at 3303 East Roosevelt Road in Little Rock. Many of the courses are computer-related, such as Introduction to Computers, Keyboarding, Creating Web Pages for Small and Home Businesses, Personal Computer Trouble Shooting Basics and Keeping Kids Safe Online. Instruction in broad array of software applications is also offered.
Other offerings include Introduction to Digital Photography, Public Speaking Basics, Toddler Sign Language and The Power of Image. Two "Law for the Layman" courses deal with legal issues aimed at helping the average person understand how different elements of law impact daily life. Participants will learn about consumer laws, purchases of vehicles, credit card rights and responsibilities, warranties, and various insurance and real estate-related issues. The second in a series of law classes focuses on family law- probate, trusts, elder law and other family issues.
For adventurous people who wish to explore the great outdoors in the Natural State, Canoeing and Kayaking in Arkansas and Hiking in Arkansas will be offered.
