VOCATIONAL SHORT COURSES

Vocational short courses are offered by both the Levelland and Lubbock Continuing Education offices. These courses are for vocational upgrading, job entry training, or for some other type of vocationally related skill training. Fees for these courses are suggested by the Dean of Continuing and Distance Education and approved by the Board of Regents.

A VOCATIONAL SHORT COURSES

Vocational short courses are sometimes referred to as community services courses. Courses in this category are primarily for personal and / or cultural enrichment. Summer activities such as athletic camps, children’s workshops, and swimming lessons, are included in this particular category as well as the many courses offered each year for the adult community.

COMMUNITY SERVICE ACTIVITY ATTENDANCE

INDUSTRIAL START-UP

When new industry comes to a community, South Plains College, through cooperation with appropriate agencies, can develop and supervise the necessary training to get the business started. Industry needing information about industrial start-up training should contact the Continuing Education Office in Levelland or Lubbock.

OFF-CAMPUS LOCATIONS

In an effort to take education to the people, South Plains College can offer classes in area towns on the South Plains. Generally speaking, a minimum of 10 persons is needed to offer a course off-campus, provided the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved the location.
