Sometimes finding a better job depends on upgrading skills. Northwest Indiana residents who would like to advance their skills or knowledge, but who aren’t necessarily interested in studying for a degree, may want to consider taking adult-education courses at Indiana University Northwest.
IU Northwest offers a wide array of adult-education courses aimed at career development and personal enrichment. Topics include everything from computer-software classes to courses on event planning, marketing, public relations, and fitness instruction. Others include eye care, pharmacy technician, photography, medical billing, and grant writing. Some of the program’s more offbeat classes include those on stand-up comedy writing and the art of voiceover work.
Tuition for these classes varies depending on the length of class and the cost of books and materials. These non-credit courses are open to anyone in the community, and they do not require formal admission to IU Northwest.
The following is a list of adult-education classes slated to begin later this month: Public Relations — March 19; Grant Writing — March 20; Voiceover Workshop — March 21; Writing Comedy for Stand-Up — March 21; Hospice and Caregivers — March 21; Geographic Information Systems — March 22; Senior Computers Series (PCs, Windows and the Internet) -- March 23; Excel — March 24; Self-Employment Strategies — March 26; Career Choices — March 27; Fitness and Nutrition Makeover — March 27; How to Make a Profit for a Non-Profit Organization — March 29.
