AURORA - Waubonsee Community College's Workforce Development Department has been named among the top 50 institutional partners of ed2go, a leading provider of online learning for adults.
The company works with more than 2,100 colleges, universities and other organizations across the nation each year.
Waubonsee began offering professional development courses in conjunction with ed2go in 2003. Two kinds of courses are offered; short-term courses are designed to teach a specific professional skill while longer career training programs prepare students for a specific career field and/or certification. For added convenience, a new round of courses starts every month.
So far this year, Waubonsee has seen 80 enrollments in its short-term courses, with computer software classes being among the most popular. An additional 45 enrollments have been in the career training programs, including medical billing and coding, information technology, paralegal and pharmacy technician.
"The essence of being a Top 50 Partner College means collectively joining forces to reach communities of learners," said Joshua Cruz, ed2goAccount Manager.
