Submitted on December 18, 2012 at 9:36 AM

Many businesses need Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training for their employees. Thanks to a new designation by OSHA, Volunteer State Community College has an expanded set of classes available this spring. The College is officially recognized as an OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center. That means many new classes will be offered, including industry outreach trainer courses. January courses include Update for Construction Outreach Trainers and OSHA Standards for General Industry. Many other courses will follow throughout the spring. The complete list can be found at the Continuing Education web page listed below.

People interested in developing new career skills can take day and evening non-credit classes in everything from Excel and PowerPoint to Leadership and Six Sigma. Programing Mobile Applications is a hot new course for folks with basic computer skills to get hands-on experience in application development. Public Speaking, APICS certification and ASQ exam prep can also help in career advancement.

Continuing Education non-credit classes coming up at Vol State this spring include fun courses such as dance, painting, Spanish and French. Basic House Construction can provide practical ideas for how to get started on that dream project. Firearm Simulator and Self-Defense Law is a one-day course that provides important information for gun owners and a sophisticated video simulation of events they might face in self-defense situations.
