TWU expands non-credit course options

1/04/07


DENTON — In response to overwhelming interest in online non-credit and career training courses, Texas Woman’s University has expanded its non-credit course offerings to accommodate what are considered “hot trend” areas.

Job seekers may receive training in areas such as business, design, health care, languages, skilled trades and more by taking non-credit online courses offered at TWU. The university also offers certification programs in medical transcription and as an administrative medical specialist, both considered “hot trend” medical fields.

“The e-learning movement — a segment of continuing education that has only scratched the surface of potential students — has taken hold, particularly in higher education through outreach and continuing education programs,” said Stephen Pense, TWU program coordinator for continuing education.

Courses are offered through TWU via Gatlin Education Services (GES), the largest provider of web-based, instructor-supported training to colleges and universities. GES open-enrollment programs are designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional-caliber positions for many in-demand occupations.
