Fall classes at Nicolet great way to upgrade job skills


Anyone interested in upgrading their job skills, training for a new career, or starting on a bachelor’s degree still has time to enroll in a wide variety of Fall Semester credit classes at Nicolet College.

“With the job market being what it is, having the right set of skills is critical for landing a job, keeping a job, and moving up in a job,” said Nicolet College President Elizabeth Burmaster. “Every academic program at Nicolet is focused on providing students with those exact skills.”

In recent years the college has also concentrated on creating more options for students who need to juggle family and job responsibilities. “That increased level of flexibility, whether it’s through online, evening or weekend classes, has opened the door to a college education for many students,” Burmaster added.

Fall Semester classes start Aug. 23.

Last year Nicolet saw more than a 10 percent increase in enrollment. Many of these people enrolled to upgrade current skills or train for a new career after being laid off from a job.

Nicolet offers 60 different associate degrees, diplomas and certificates along with a University Transfer Liberal Arts program where students complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree.

New programs recently created at the college are one-year certificates in Digital Media Arts and Home Technology Integration.

Other programs include Business Management, Administrative Professional, Accounting, Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Education, and Barber Cosmetology.

Along with nine different health occupations options, the college also has programs in the trades that include Building Trades-Carpentry and Welding along with Automotive Technician and Small Engine Maintenance Technician programs.

Nicolet is also the only technical college in the state system to offer a two-year associate degree in Land Surveying.
