leave a comment »

Central Community College’s Ord Learning Center held an Open House/Registration for the Spring 2010 semester January 13, from 6 – 8 p.m.  Over 35 people toured the newly remodeled facility, registered for door prizes, and shared refreshments.  Registration numbers for classes through the Ord center’s Extended Learning program for the Spring 2010 semester is currently at 27, more than double the total number from the previous fall semester.

Furnishings and equipment including tables, chairs, computers, and software are all scheduled for delivery and installation later this spring.  Final cleaning and polishing of floors are scheduled for late January.  Installation of a new phone system and Internet capability for access to the college system will further complete the initial services provided by the Ord Learning Center. On-site, instructor-led classes are planned for the 2010 Fall Semester.

Central Community College-Columbus has also obtained a Worker Training Grant, which enables the Ord Learning Center to offer another educational service at no cost to the individual. Scheduled later this winter and spring are three in-service training classes offered at no cost to area patrons and business employers and employees.  They are titled Leadership Development Series, Celebrating Diversity, and Sales & Customer Service.  For more information and to register, stop by the Learning Center and talk to Lu Lansman, OLC Manager, available also at 728-7875 or llansman@frontier.com.

Door Prize winners from the January 13th Ord Learning Center Open House include:  Sally Domeier, Alex Farrens, Lisa Farrens, Cindy Gabriel, Jan Howard, Kelsey Howard, Christy Hruza, Dave Kaslon, Diane Kaslon, Kim Newquist, Randy O’Brien, Vicki O’Brien, Christina Pollard, Mick Puckett, Nancy Puckett, Father Tom Ryan, Eileen Sliva, Carl Streeter, and Michelle Stunkel.  These individuals may collect their door prizes at the CCC Learning Center.
