Consider a Career in the Growing HVAC/R Industry

Begin a Warehousing Career With Forklift Certification

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration technicians and installers is projected to increase 34 percent during the 2010-2020 decade. Harford’s HVAC/R certification prepares students for entry-level positions in the HVAC industry in under 12 months. Many of our hands-on classes take place in simulated work environments so you get the skills and experience you need to attract employers in this growing industry.

Working in Warehousing and Distribution requires the ability to operate a forklift safely and effectively. Forklift certification training with HCC provides classroom instruction and hands-on exercises for individuals with limited forklift experience. The program takes one day to complete and is offered three times during the fall and spring semesters.

Start Import/ Export Business

ONLINE

In today’s economy, an import/export business could be your ideal choice for a small business. A small company can profitably sell abroad what it markets, and goods imported from overseas can be offered for sale in the U.S. for a substantial markup. Unlike manufacturing or a storefront, an import/export business offers an inexpensive entry into owning your own business. There may even be the advantage of international travel. Students will determine what products to offer, learn where to locate suppliers and outlets for their products and will be introduced to government regulations concerning import/export. For additional information regarding this course, visit http://www.harford.edu/faculty/WFlood/. Prerequisite: Internet expertise assumed. Textbook required. Transcript available.

Those who wish to practice animal massage for compensation must be employed and under the direct supervision of a veterinarian. Required for all Veterinary Assistant students. Participants may bring a socialized dog to class for use in the practice of massage. All dogs must be licensed, have current rabies immunization, and be kept on a lead at all times.

Over time, historians have distilled the many men who helped create our country to a mere six. That’s not enough, for it leaves out such familiar names as Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock.

The Founding Fathers: Alexander Hamilton, Insecure Outsider, Arrogant Aristocrat One historian noted that Alexander Hamilton has no monument in Washington, D.C. But he didn’t need a monument, this man noted. The United States was his monument and his dream was the American dream. With Hamilton, we have a classic rags-to-riches story, a man who truly made it on his own and became trusted by Washington, hated by Jefferson and John Adams, and killed in a duel with Aaron Burr. He is most remembered because of his death and for an infamous affair which he completely admitted - in print! There is much more to the life of this complex man who created our modern capitalist financial system.

The Founding Fathers: George Washington, American Cincinnatus Called the “Father of his Country” and the one “Indispensable Man” of the American Revolution and early republic, Washington was even more. This session will look at the many Washingtons: the early surveyor, the militia leader during the French and Indian War, the post war politician and planter, the general during the Revolution, and of course, the first American president. It will also examine Washington’s core values. Like the Roman general Cincinnatus, Washington put down his plow to lead his nation and then put aside power to return to private life. While many assumed he would become America’s George I, he had a very different view of his country’s future - and his own. Tuition: $19 Sessions: 1 Course: 45358 J.

He was also the husband of the fabulous Dolley and a lifelong friend to Thomas Jefferson, as well, as America’s forth President. The short, frail Madison was involved in nearly every major event in the new Republic from the Alien and Sedition Acts to the Virginia, Kentucky Resolutions, and our most famous Supreme Court Case Marbury v Madison.

GENERAL INTEREST

Benjamin Franklin described John Adams as always an honest man, often a Wise One, but sometimes and in some things, absolutely out of his senses. And so he was. John Adams was a great statesmen and political philosopher. He was a leader in America’s independence movement, and worked mightily abroad in securing foreign loans, a French alliance and a peace treaty with Great Britain. Adams was also a wonderful husband to Abigail who could be just as insecure and thin-skinned as her husband. Together they raised one of America’s truly dysfunctional families. Adams ended his career as a politician, one who managed to offend and anger just about everyone. As our second president, he was honest, industrious, and ineffective. His story is entertaining and often enlightening. Tuition: $19 Sessions: 1 Course: 45360 J. Rath Fri. 10/26 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM HCC - Edgewood Hall, Rm. 132

The Founding Fathers: Thomas Jefferson, Sage of Monticello A recent biographer of Jefferson labeled him “The American Sphinx” because of his secretive nature. Had Jefferson been more forthcoming, our third president would still be a difficult man to deal with because of his many contradictions.

Literature Literature and the Inferior Movie

NEW

Everyone knows that the movie versions of books always get a bad rap. The universal notion is that the movie is inferior if it strays from or alters the original storyline (and therefore the integrity of the book itself ). But what can be said about treating movies as a separate story and art-form all their own? Is it possible to depart from the claim that “the book is always better?” By comparing books such as W. Somerset Maugham’s The Painted Veil, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are, and Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibilities with their cinematic counterparts (which either depart from the story line or follow it very closely) we can determine if movies can be seen as their own art form and appreciate them as such.

Known as the Zumba “pool party,” Aqua Zumba gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting, and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief. Aqua Zumba uses mostly Latin music rhythms such as Merengue, Cumbia, Salsa, and Reggaeton, but can also use a variety of upbeat tempos as found in other world music. Because of the resistance of the water, Zumba movements will be slower and adjusted to the water environment; however, the workout can be just as intense. Water shoes are needed for this class.

Security Tips • Do not engage in conversation with people who make you feel threatened. • Being alone and under the influence of alcohol and drugs makes you more of a target to assailants. • Never drive (or ride with anyone) under the influence of alcohol and drugs. • Lock vehicle and store valuables and books in the trunk or out of sight. • Walk with others to and from class when possible; there is safety in numbers. • Use well-lighted areas and walkways.

HCC Crime Statistics*

• When walking to or from your vehicle, scan the area for suspicious subjects. If something makes you uncomfortable, walk to an area where other people are. • If you are confronted by an armed assailant, the decision to comply or resist is a personal one. Any property you may have is not worth your life. • Keep your keys ready when approaching your vehicle to reduce the time it takes to enter. • When driving at night, keep your doors locked and windows up. • When stopped at a traffic signal, maintain space between you and the vehicle in front of you so you can pull away if necessary. • Trust your intuition.
