Cornwall Ontario – It is a busy time over at the local Contact North | Contact Nord online learning centre as students register for online learning programs and courses.
As more programs and courses become available online, students in the Cornwall area are taking advantage of the opportunity to remain in their community while pursuing programs and courses offered by public post-secondary institutions and training providers.
“We are able to help students to access a wide range of online courses from literacy, training, high school, college and university,” says Carilyne Hebert, online learning recruitment officer at the Contact North | Contact Nord online learning centre in Cornwall.
Although many post-secondary students have started classes this week, Hebert says that registration closes on September 16th however there are many courses that have monthly intakes throughout the fall.
If tuition fees are a barrier, there are also a number of courses available that are free. For example, there is Bookkeeping Essential Skills, Computer Use Essential Skills, and Getting to know your Mobile Device. For those wanting to finish a high school diploma there is no deadline for registration.
“It can be overwhelming finding the right course and getting registered but we are able to make that an easy process. Students are welcome to contact me directly and set up an appointment to discuss their options,” says Hebert.
Contact North | Contact Nord is a not-for-profit corporation funded by the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
The online learning centre is located at 1500 Cumberland- Room 226.
