Washtenaw Community College has been approved by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) for its non-credit area of training.
The IACET represents the highest level of quality for instructional design, delivery and evaluation that sets provider colleges and institutions, including WCC, apart from others.
The accreditation allows the college to provide stronger programming that meets the needs of its students and community members.
“Accreditation is equivalent to the Good Housekeeping seal of approval for education,” said Dr. Michelle K. Mueller, WCC’s vice president of Economic, Community and College Development. “It provides the public and employers with the assurance that the classes they enroll in and complete for training, through WCC’s Division of Economic & Community Development, have met the highest standard of quality available.”
Total noncredit headcount for the 2015-16 academic year was 6,959.
Community Enrichment classes include “Build a Business Facebook Page,” “Basic Video Production” and “Bookkeeping: Practical Skills for Business.”
Topic areas for Workforce Development classes range from accounting and finance to business writing to stress management.
