Cleveland State Offers Several Advance Options This Fall

Friday, July 12, 2013

Cleveland State Community College will be offering several different Advance scheduling options this fall. Advance is the College’s accelerated program that offers students a "quick and convenient" way to obtain a college degree. The benefits of the Advance program include attending class one or two days a week, completing the degree or certificate in a fast-paced format and working with the same group of fellow students throughout the program. 

This fall, the Advance program will be offering a Medical Health General Education program. This is a new evening general education block schedule that will prepare students for any of the allied health programs at Cleveland State. Upon completion, students can begin a variety of health careers including applying for admission to the Nursing program and the Medical Assistant program.  

Classes for the Electrical Maintenance Certificate will begin in August and will end in May of 2014. The classes will be held on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the main campus and the Athens site. An Electrical Maintenance Certificate will prepare students to obtain one of the following jobs: electrical maintenance technician, electrician installer and repairer, maintenance electrician, industrial maintenance electrician or industrial electrician. 

Also offered this fall will be an A.A.S. Degree in Business Management. This option is suitable for highly motivated and mature adults that are seeking an A.A.S. in the Business Management Major—Business Concentration, officials said. Many Advance students obtain their A.A.S. in two and one half years at CSCC and a bachelor’s in two additional years at a selected four-year college or university. 

  “This cohort program has helped me to have the ability to re-enter the work force with confidence,” stated Doug Quinn. “Not only do I have the opportunity to land a job in high demand, but the pay is exceptional.” 

  To learn more or to register for the Advance program, call 478-6255 or visit the website at mycs.cc/advance.  

  Funding for this program is provided under Title I of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006.
