Distance Education

Do you want to take a continuing education class, but you just can not fit time and travel into your schedule?

Then Distance Education is for you, whether it's Ed2Go, Adult High School/GED, or Medical.


Ed2Go is the way to go for a wide variety of classes from an Art to Windows XP. The online classes are highly interactive with project-oriented lessons, stimulating quizzes, and hands-on assignments. Professionals as instructors answer your questions and create a true learning community for you.

Each course typically runs for six weeks with two lessons each week. That's 24 hours of instruction for which you receive 2.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The credits are not transferable to colleges or universities.

Adult High School/GED

If you have not finished high school, but you really need a diploma to get a better job, then study for your Adult High School or General Educational Development diploma through distance education.

It's free! No tuition or books to buy!

The AHS program is taken online at home or at a college Basic Skills site, depending on the county where you enroll. The GED program is online or on disks. As an online or disk student, you will study the same materials as students in the college's seated AHS/GED classes. All tests must be taken on-site at the Basic Skills program where you are enrolled.

For the high school diploma, complete just the credits you are missing. For a GED, you study and then take a series of five tests to demonstrate proficiency in high school core subjects.


The Continuing Education Department provides some medical classes online for the convenience of those interested in careers in that field.

Current online Medical classes are:

  • Anatomy and Physiology for Health Professionals
  • Home Health and Hospice Aide
  • Introduction to Health Occupations
  • Introduction to Medical Transcription
  • Medical Coding and Billing
  • Medical Terminology
  • Nursing Assistant I Hybrid
