Students will learn the basics of operating, managing and growing a small business, develop business and technical expertise, and build skills in team management.
Courses in customer service and small business management are available to anyone over 18. A total of seven courses are offered and are completed in 15 weeks. All courses are online.
The programs also help with preparing for college-level business courses.
Patterson said the courses are "great stand-alone courses for freelancers, small business owners and entrepreneurs," in addition to fulfilling certification requirements.
Classes started this week and a registration fee of $41 per semester includes all classes.
