Innovation Happens Here

When you think about CCPE, what comes to mind? Culinary? Medical Assisting? Payroll? We pride ourselves on offering career-building programs that will never go out of style. Think about it: People love to eat, healthcare is universally important, and getting paid is paramount to our livelihood.

However, did you know we offer what some might perceive as nontraditional careers? For example, social media exploded in the early 2000s with the advent of platforms such as Facebook and MySpace. Now, posting, tweeting and sharing content on a full-time basis comes with an office, salary and benefits. Ask our Social Media Marketing graduates who have either secured jobs or developed their own businesses.

Data breaches are an unfortunate circumstance but we have an elegant solution – our Ethical Hacker certificate. This is one of our newest programs and is designed to thwart cyberattacks. Many of our students have experience in the information technology field, so this course takes it to another level!

Dave Durden, this edition’s featured student, discovered our Professional Investigator program. He wanted to add to his already impressive skillset of military service and protective services experience. Our course provided a way for him to enhance his business and continue to build upon his professional areas of interest. Learn more about him in our Spring 2019 Course Catalog.

CCPE is the place where innovation happens. We are focused on keeping our traditional programs current while developing courses that will keep you on the leading edge of industry demands.

Regardless of where your interests are – healthcare, technology, business, culinary – we have a class for you. Prepare to elevate yourself to an incredible level of success!

The Future is Now

Here at CCPE, I like to think of us as a “jobs creation engine.” We have nearly 40 professional certificate programs designed for industries such as healthcare, technology and management, which you can explore on our website. Our team is constantly reviewing ways to evolve our current certificate courses to keep them relevant – thus giving you a competitive advantage for your professional goals.

But what’s next? How are job industries changing the requirements of their employees? What new career fields are emerging? Also, what skill sets are in demand and how do we supply the educational tools to help you succeed?

Our program development team will answer these questions in the form of new certificate offerings. On the table: CompTIA, Health IT, and Agile. We look forward to seeing you in our classes, crossing the stage at graduation, and telling us about your new position!

Chelsea Cowan definitely understands the value of professional education for career enhancement. She graduated from the Construction Project Management certificate program and uses her skills for the Georgia Department of Defense. Although she had on-the-job experience, Cowan desired a focused educational approach to her career. She said our certificate program provided her more of a comprehensive knowledge of the construction industry.

We want to help you reach your full potential – it is our main purpose. You are encouraged to contact us at ccpe@kennesaw.edu to share your career accomplishments as well as ideas for new programs.

You matter to us, and we are looking forward to your feedback.

OLLI Course Catalog Newsletter January - March 2019

Taking You On Adventures In and Out of the Classroom

Wine, wisdom and you – all things that get better with age. Our OLLI Newsletter is no exception. Whether this is your first OLLI Newsletter or your 15th, I am thrilled to welcome and invite you to take this journey with us as we continue to enhance and evolve this publication created especially for you.

As you flip through the pages, you’ll notice the expansion of classes. With that said, this newsletter is definitely a keeper! We know it can be challenging to juggle work, travel, volunteering, family and OLLI. This newsletter is your solution – with six months of classes (instead of three), you’ll be able to plan for longer periods of time. You’ll have a head start on new courses as well as see the progression for those that build upon one another.

This being the case, we will now be mailing the newsletter twice each year. However, flyers will be available in the OLLI Suite with information on classes for the month. Also, be sure to join our email list for up-to-date information on courses, events and travel (email ccpe@kennesaw.edu).

Speaking of travel … pack your bags! Thanks to your helpful feedback from the OLLI Travel Group, we have three local day trips planned and are working on domestic overnight trips to see the fall colors in New England, a land/sea cruise to Alaska, and a Pacific Coast highway bus tour through California and Washington State.

Luck is also on your side – our international trip has been selected and we will be traveling to Ireland together! “Erin go bragh” and grab your passport! Details will be announced via email and Facebook.com/KSUOLLI. Registration will be available on our website. Get ready – the Emerald Isle awaits! Learn more about all of our travel plans on page 4.

As you continue to read this newsletter and highlight those classes of interest, just know that I am always open to your ideas. If there is a class you are interested in that we do not offer, just let me know! With locations at the Booth Museum in Cartersville and Laurel Canyon Soleil in Canton, we have a plethora of options! As the official OLLI contact person, I am always available for questions, suggestions and conversations.

I look forward to seeing you in class soon.
