Folsom Lake College’s spring 2012 semester is almost here, with most classes starting Jan. 17-23.
While many spring 2012 classes are full — state of California budget cuts have led to reduced offerings — a limited number of courses remain open for registration. Several of these classes are ideal for someone seeking a new career path or looking to upgrade their professional skills.
Here are a few of the career-focused classes still open for registration (as of Jan. 5):
• Nonprofit organizations — There are two Business (BUS) classes offered this spring designed for anyone interested in a career working for nonprofit organizations: BUS 181 “Nonprofit Fundraising,” and BUS 182 “Nonprofit Governance and Financial Management.” Both classes — which meet one night a week in the evenings — are part of the college’s nonprofit career certificate.
• Environmental technology (ENVT) classes — There are several of these offerings open for spring 2012, all designed for green careers in fields like water management and wastewater management.
• Kinesiology (KINES) classes — These classes are part of the college’s certificate programs in group fitness and personal trainer.
Interested students should go to flc.losrios.edu for more information on which classes are open. Folsom Lake College offers classes at the main Folsom campus, the El Dorado Center in Placerville and the Rancho Cordova Center. The spring 2012 semester officially begins Jan. 14, when a small number of Saturday-only and online classes meet. Most classes hold their first session Jan. 17-23; the college is closed Monday, Jan. 16, in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday.
