“Cleveland State is pleased to offer degree options in a variety of healthcare fields," stated Nancy LaBine, dean of Health and Wellness / director of Nursing. “These new options will assist individuals to degree completion and hopefully, open doors for employment in the field. We always look forward to meeting eager students at information sessions and helping them take that next step.”

Cleveland State is also offering Electrical Maintenance Information Sessions on Saturday, July 12 at the Athens campus and on the main campus in room 134 of the Technology Building on Saturday, July 19 and Saturday, August 9. All sessions will begin at 9 a.m.

 “In addition to regularly scheduled classes, the Industrial Technology Department at Cleveland State Community College is pleased to offer the Electrical Maintenance Certificate on a Saturday schedule, stated Dr. Sal Mirza, dean of Business and Technology. “Beginning in the fall, this one year program offers the foundational classes that prepare you to obtain one of the following jobs: Electrical Maintenance Technician, Electrical Installer, and Repairer, Maintenance Electrician, Industrial Maintenance Electrician or Industrial Electrician. We look forward to being a part of your journey.”
