Student registering for a class

Beginning April 8, South Piedmont Community College is offering a new slate of online courses for our communities designed to provide education and training for new careers, to assist with resume writing and interviewing, to support parents who are homeschooling students, and to provide outlets to explore personal interests.

“As we navigate COVID-19 together, South Piedmont is here to support community members with courses designed to meet their needs,” said Carl Bishop, vice president of academic affairs. 

Career focused courses like computer technician, emergency medical responder, or medical coding will equip students with education and training needed to pursue new careers and will prepare students to sit for industry-recognized exams. 

Additional workforce-related courses will help students update their resumes and interviewing skills, should they be looking for new positions.

Homeschool courses are designed to help parents and family members navigate education at home for K-12 students. Topics include homeschool for elementary children, short-cuts to math and algebra, basics of American history, and foundations of anatomy and physiology.

For those who want to explore hobbies or home-improvements, South Piedmont offers personal interest courses. Students may choose from an array of topics, ranging from guitar, art, and writing, to basic plumbing and wall repairs. 

South Piedmont’s online courses provide options designed to meet many needs, while allowing community members to remain home during the COVID-19 crisis.
