Meridian Technology Center has recently announced new personal and professional development short courses with in-person and online enrollment options.  

“We have a mix of in-person and online options to allow people to train or retrain for a new career or to simply have fun with their friends and family,” said Titus Lester, Meridian’s Coordinator of Adult Training and Development.  

Some of the new classes for 2023 include Mastering the Landlord Tenant Relationship, a LinkedIn Series, Cultural Experience Cooking, Seasonal Wreath Making, Homemade Dog Treats and Marketing for Photographers. Courses in business, certification testing, communication, computers, construction, cooking, health, manufacturing, safety and security, and transportation are also offered throughout the spring semester. 

In addition to the classes offered on the Main and South Campuses, Meridian will also offer a selection of courses in Perry including Medicare 101, Cajun Cuisine, Infant/Child CPR and Braiding Techniques. You can register for these classes online at meridiantech.edu/perryclasses.   

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.  

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 meridiantech.edu/catalog. If there is a short course that you would like to see offered at Meridian, contact Titus Lester at titusl@meridiantech.edu or (405) 377-3333.
