Meridian Technology Center recently announced new personal and professional development short courses.

“We have a wide variety of classes for people to explore in the next few months. Whether they want to have fun or if they are interested in enrolling in a short course to prepare for a full-time career, we have several new classes to choose from,” said Titus Lester, Meridian’s Coordinator of Short-Term Courses. 

Some of the new classes for the fall include Keeping Your Digital Life Secure, Type II Diabetes 101, Installing Cabinets and Countertops, Air Fryer 101, and Instant Pot Breakfasts and Desserts. 

In addition to offering full-time career training for high school and adult students, customized business solutions for local industries, and assistance for budding entrepreneurs, Meridian also serves as a place where district residents can expand their skills and explore their interests. 

“We’re always looking for new course offerings and ways to improve the classes that we teach on a regular basis. We try to make coming to Meridian for classes as easy as possible,” Lester said. 

Each semester Meridian offers hundreds of courses. Many of the professional development short courses have classes during both the day and evening hours and often meet one or two times during the week. If time is a factor, online training is also available. 

Meridian has a new set of classes each spring, summer and fall. For a complete listing of this semester’s courses visit If there is a short course that you would like to see offered at Meridian, contact Titus Lester at [email protected] or (405) 377-3333.
