Continuing Education

Fort Scott Community College works with business, industry, and government agencies to improve the economic vitality of the region, help small businesses start and grow successfully, assure the availability of a trained workforce, and assist community members in learning new skills, finding employment, or advancing in their chosen field.  Our program flexibility allows us to partner with employers to provide training through multiple approaches on flexible time schedules  at a reasonable cost. Instruction can be provided by a partner employee or FSCC staff.

 

Workforce Training:  specific, short-term skill training—in many cases targeting industry recognized certifications—supporting many occupations required in multiple industries across the region.

 

Leadership Development:  organizational training with subject matter experts in a variety of leadership- and management-related subjects to support training goals, encourage employee advancement, and improve the organization’s bottom line.

 

Customized Training:  training solutions tailored to the identified training needs of individual businesses/industries. Instruction can be provided on site, on campus, or online, as appropriate. 

 

Online Specialty Training: FSCC can provide a variety of specialty training via a web-based instructional system that allows students to work at their own pace in an environment of their choice.

 

Community Enrichment: classes related to hobby-related skills, including other lifestyle skills of interest to the community. For example, the College can provide a venue for classes from beekeeping to gardening.
