NECC Holds Open House for Noncredit Courses at Opportunity Works Location
An open house showcasing Northern Essex Community College’s Center for Corporate and Community Education’s new location in the Opportunity Works building at 671 Kenoza St., next to the Haverhill campus, will be held Wednesday, August 23, between 5 and 7 p.m. This open house is free and open to the public.
The center relocated from its most recent space at the Riverwalk in Lawrence. NECC’s 114 noncredit courses, as well as its corporate training programs, will now be offered in the new Opportunity Works building which offers enhanced audio, visual, and computer technologies.
Courses offered in Haverhill will include a newly updated and expanded Human Resources Certificate Program, a Quality Technician Training Program, a Teacher Licensing course, a Payroll Accounting Certificate Program, and the new Sketch Up Part 2, and the popular Project Management Certificate Program.
The enhanced technologies in the building allow for a broad menu of computer training courses now available, including Adobe, AutoCad 2016, IT Certification Training, graphic design, and web design & web hosting.
The new Haverhill location also offers ideal space for the learning opportunities offered by the Life Long Learning initiative, a program of seminars, discussion, and study groups for adults. Within Life Long Learning, the College of Older Learners (CoOL) offers seminar groups in topics such as Audio Storytelling, Historic New England, Now and Zen, Senior Theater, and Non-Traditional Healing.
