CLC offers 2 new programs

The College of General Studies' Computer Learning Center (CLC) is offering two new certificate programs in database development and business software usage.

In addition, the center has become an approved education provider under Pennsylvania Act 48, which requires an educator to set aside 180 hours for professional development activities every five years in order to maintain a teaching certificate.

The certificate in business software is a noncredit program that teaches students how to create a budget and financial analysis, develop presentation materials and search for specific information both on the Internet and among database records. To earn the certificate, students spend 72 hours in the classroom and present a portfolio of completed work.

The certificate in database development uses Microsoft Access to teach students how to create, update, search and report from a computer database. Students complete 58 hours of classroom work and submit a special project to earn the certificate.

Educators interested in using the center to fulfill Act 48 professional development requirements can attend a series of June workshops specifically designed for teachers or attend classes and workshops anytime during the year. Workshops also can be provided at school sites for in-service activity.

CLC is located in Suite 1105 Kossman Building, 100 Forbes Ave., Downtown.
