In an effort to help local employees grow their careers, College of the Canyons is offering eight new short-term career skills classes during the fall 2018 semester.

The free classes, available through the college’s School of Continuing Education, will be offered in afternoon and evening sessions, as well as online, to accommodate the busy schedules of working adults. The eight classes include:
Time Management
Business Writing in the Technology Age
Critical Thinking, Problem Solving & Decision Making
Best Practices in Customer Service
The Art of Negotiating & Collaboration
Personality Styles & Difficult Relationships
Successfully Managing & Developing People
Communication Strategies for the Workplace

“In talking with local companies, we hear over and over again that these are the key skills employees need to not only help their companies grow, but also be successful in reaching their own individual career goals,” said Justin Wallace, the college’s Director of Educational Partnerships.

Courses begin October 8. Each class is eight hours long and can be completed in one week. As soon as one class ends, another begins the following week.

Students who successfully complete multiple classes can earn certificates of achievement.

The Workplace Essentials Certificate is awarded after finishing three classes: Time Management, Business Writing in the Technology Age, and Critical Thinking, Problem Solving & Decision Making.
The Customer Relations Certificate can be achieved by completing three classes: Best Practices in Customer Service, The Art of Negotiating & Collaboration, and Personality Styles & Difficult Relationships
The Management Tools Certificate is earned by taking two classes: Successfully Managing & Developing People and Communication Strategies for the Workplace.

“Because these classes are free, and offered online and at convenient times, they offer a unique opportunity for local residents to gain a competitive advantage in their careers,” Wallace said. Students can choose to take courses at the college’s Canyon Country Campus on Sierra Highway, or at the new Santa Clarita Plaza classroom on Bouquet Canyon Road.

Current College of the Canyons students can register for courses by visiting the class schedule. New students should call (661) 362-3304 for application and registration instructions.
