SANFORD - Central Carolina Community College Continuing Education offers a variety of non-degree, short-term training opportunities to assist students in gaining entry into the workforce, or to assist with changing career paths.

Classes focus on non-degree, fee-based training programs in a variety of career fields. Courses often lead to state licensure, or a certificate upon completion, and provide Continuing Education units for those looking to enter the job market quickly. Additionally, there are personal interest courses that help enhance one's life and offer the opportunity to explore new interests.

Open enrollment opportunities currently available include:

Alive at 25: The first year for a new driver is the most dangerous. Statistics have shown that young drivers are involved in fatal crashes at more than twice the rate of more experienced drivers. Whether you've received a ticket, or just want to be a safer driver, you can learn defensive driving techniques. Designed for persons under 24 years of age, this course may minimize or prevent the assessment of insurance points or premium surcharges on insurance policies and/or driver license. To register, bring your current driver license, citation number, violation type, and court date. These four-hour courses are offered ongoing and cost $60 per person.

Defensive Driving: Defensive driving classes may minimize or prevent the assessment of insurance points or premium surcharges on insurance policies and/or driver license.

Escort Vehicle Certification: This course is designed to meet the training requirements set by the N.C. Department of Transportation to certify Oversize-Overweight load escort vehicle drivers. Course components consist of defensive driving, escort driver requirements, skills training, and an exam.

Students must bring a current driver license and a certified driving record to the class. Register no later than Sept. 7.
