The Computer Education & Training Center at UMSL (CETC) has been aiding adults looking to update their skills to stay current or get ahead in an evolving workforce since its founding 35 years ago as UMSL’s Microcomputer Program.
Its course offerings are always evolving along with the business environment and include classes on database management, Office 365, web development, desktop publishing, data visualization, data analysis, SharePoint, SQL and programming.
Some students seek out instruction independently to enhance their resumes while others are directed to the center by their employers, and they can pursue one of nine specialized chancellor’s certificates.
Classes cover a wide range of topics to meet a variety of skill levels and interests, while new courses are developed that address specific educational needs in the community. Introductory courses are geared to those students requiring basic knowledge, while intermediate and advanced courses in the most current hardware and software technology are offered to students with more specialized needs. Course offerings are diverse.
