What is a Certificate Program? A Certificate Program is a series of courses providing in-depth study, so you can get the most up-to-date skills and information you need to excel in your chosen field. A certificate shows you’re committed to a deeper understanding of your industry beyond what an individual course or workshop provides. Some certificates are preparation for accreditation exams, meet state mandated requirements, or have been developed in partnership with area employers.

How will I benefit from earning a Certificate? Making the personal investment in a certificate shows your employer (or future employer) a serious commitment to your field and increases your value in the workplace. A certificate can give you a competitive edge in hiring or getting promoted. Over the course of a certificate program, many students have opportunities to work closely with instructors and fellow students, providing a valuable professional network for the future.

Certificate Programs save you money! Instead of taking individual classes, sign up for a certificate program, and take more classes for less money! Tuition assistance is available.

CERTIFICATE SERIES

Finance is a key to entrepreneurial success. The lack of financial knowledge about business and business start-ups is also one of the leading causes of failure for entrepreneurial ventures. As an entrepreneur, you have limited time, and you certainly have limited resources. So knowing where to put your valuable time, and your limited resources, is critical to the success of your new venture. You will start by gaining a deeper knowledge of the financial concepts and accounting processes used in most businesses. You will take back practical techniques that will increase your effectiveness and entrepreneurial success. Finally, you will gain an understanding of the seven steps in the accounting cycle and how to use financial information in decision making. After successfully completing the Entrepreneurial Finance Certificate, you will have exponentially increased your knowledge about entrepreneurial finance, and how to maximize the chances of success and minimize the risks for your new venture.

Customer Service Professional

CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

The Customer Service Professional Certificate (CSPC) program provides the skills and knowledge to obtain employment in a variety of great customer service positions in the region. Endorsement and recognition by regional partners provide students with industry specific, project-based education and training.

“The Customer Service Professional Certificate program fills a gap in our community and prepares students to successfully enter our organization. Toyota Financial Services has long-term, valued team members who are graduates of this program.” — Julie Perez, CSC Planning and Support Manager, Toyota Financial Services

STUDENT CASE STUDY The impact and value of the CSPC employment training program is best described by Julie, a graduate of the program: “The Customer Service Professional Certificate and the Gap Tuition Assistance Program made it possible for me to find a new career for the rest of my working life! Thank you so much!” Through the training, Julie gained the necessary phone experience, and sales, customer service and collections skills. She excelled in class and was a great mentor for the other students. She also received financial assistance and support that she needed to achieve her educational and career goals. In less than four months, Julie had started her new career. Julie graduated on a Thursday and started her new collections position at an industry leader in Cedar Rapids the following Monday.

The classroom and lab environment simulates the workplace with computers, telephone equipment and customer database software to provide an on-the-job training environment. This certificate program is a total of 288 hours, meeting 4.5 hours per day for 13 weeks. Students also visit industry facilities and are provided interview opportunities upon completion of the certificate. Successful completion of the CSPC program also counts towards nine credit hours for the Computer Support Specialist Associate of Applied Science degree should students decide to continue to pursue their education.

Stay Organized, Focused and In Control When you’re so overwhelmed you feel you’re running around like the proverbial headless chicken, you can be sure of one thing: Your results are going to suffer. Unfortunately, being disorganized, unfocused, and out of control seems to be the default setting for many professionals these days. But here’s the good news: Many of the counterproductive behaviors leading to this stressful state are just bad habits you’ve developed over time – and what you learned, you can unlearn. In this noholds-barred workshop, you’ll identify the behaviors – your own and other people’s – that most contribute to your feeling overwhelmed, begin to develop tactics for changing these behaviors, clarify what’s truly worth your time – and what isn’t, develop strategies for setting boundaries and dealing with interruptions from peers, subordinates, and managers, practice organizing your upcoming weeks around mission-critical tasks, identify clues you may be falling victim to perfectionism – and develop a plan for letting it go, get a list of productivity tools you can evaluate to see if they fit your work style.

CONSTRUCTION TRADES Water Pipe Sizing for Plumbers (online) This online course covers the most commonly used UPC method of sizing water distribution systems as described in Code sections 610.7 - 610.9. This is the sizing that will be used in the course you are beginning. It should be noted that the Uniform Plumbing Code offers three other ways to size water piping systems. Appendix A is useful in sizing larger systems, especially if the water supply fixture units and length limits in Table 6-6 are exceeded. Appendix L allows for separate fixtures in a bathroom to be sized as a group. This allows for large apartment complexes and condos to be more economically sized. Footnote three in Table 6-5 permits fixtures, in branches that are supplied with both hot and cold piping, to be assigned 75 percent of their Table 6-5 values. The benefit, in larger installations is cost savings that could result from smaller pipe sizes being required. The authority having jurisdiction should be consulted before using any option other than the standard sizing method. This class has been approved by the Plumbing and Mechanical Systems Board for two hours of plumbing discipline. CITR-1015 / Online / $59 > 79638 Williams

• One-day conference dedicated to meeting the safety and health training needs of business and industry. • Networking opportunities with peers across eastern Iowa. • Vendor expo featuring the latest products and services in health and safety.

Keynote Speaker | Garrison Wynn As a safety leader, are you personally influential? Do you create a culture of safety? When your employees are engaged, they feel value and can connect their job duties to the overall impact of the organization. Studies have determined that nine out of 10 employees who feel rewarded and cared for see safety as a top priority. That number is substantially lower for those who are disengaged. Garrison Wynn is a high energy speaker who uses humor and personal field safety experience as well as research to motivate others to think and act safely.

This online course is designed to provide an in-depth review of Chapter 4 of the 2015 Uniform Plumbing Code. The requirements found in the chapter are designed to insure quality workmanship and the durable installation of plumbing fixtures and fixture fittings. Acceptable types of fixtures, including water closets and urinals, flushing devices, and minimum plumbing requirements for various facilities are some of the topics examined. This class has been approved by the Plumbing and Mechanical Systems Board for two hours of plumbing code. CITR-1026 / Online / $59 > 80348 Schwickerath

2015 UPC Chapter 5 (online) The subject of Chapter 5 is water heaters. Fuel-burning water heaters include natural gas, propane and oil.

This course is designed to help you become more familiar with the Uniform Plumbing Code. This is accomplished by asking a series of questions. To receive the greatest benefit you should take the time to find each answer in your code book. Do not guess. The answers to these questions, as well as the answers that you will need when you take the Journey Plumber Test with Gas, will be from the 2015 Uniform Plumbing Code, not what you may or may not practice in the field. The knowledge and skill you gain from this course will be based on the effort that you put into it. Each set of questions are based on a specific chapter of the code book. In the actual journey plumber test, the questions are random and result in a wider search area of the code book for each answer. This course was intentionally not set up in that manner. Instead, each set of questions concentrate on individual chapters, this is to give you a deeper depth of study of the specific topic that is being covered in each chapter. An advantage of an online class is that you can work at your convenience and at your own pace. However, the journey person test is timed and this luxury will not be there.

Let’s Knit a Double Knitting Blanket Double knitting is a cool knitting technique that allows you to produce a double layer of Stockinette Stitch fabric with mirror-image color work while knitting both layers at the same time. There are a few variations on this technique and we are going to use one that will be new to most knitters. Our blanket also has a story behind it. It is the blanket pattern knit by Mrs. Hoover. From the pattern introduction, “The techniques used in creating Mrs. Hoover’s blanket are really not difficult. If you can work ribbing and slip a stitch, you’ve got all the skills you need to try double-knitting. Why not follow in some very famous footsteps and give this blanket a try? If you don’t know anyone who’s expecting a baby, consider knitting one for someone in need.” Let’s knit a bit of history.

Let’s Knit a Mosaic Shawl

Top Down Socks

There are many ways to add color to your knitting from the yarns we choose to the stripes we add. Many knitters shy away from color, because they don’t feel confident or they think that their choices are “just wrong” but mosaic knitting is a great option for those who feel that way. Mosaic knitting is where only one yarn is worked per row. While you do have another yarn going; the other yarn is slipped, while you knit this row. The effects are gorgeous. The knitting is relaxing. We will be knitting the New Caesar Shawl. For this, you will need a main color and a contrasting color. You can use a variegated/self-striping/long-striping colorway with a contrasting color. Materials Fee $5.

Knitting can provide a number of health benefits ranging from relieving daily stress, lowering blood pressure and managing chronic pain. With this in mind, sock knitting is one of the best projects. Learn how to make a well fitted pair of socks, knitting from the cuff down. You will be guided through knitting in the round using DPNs, two circs, or magic loop. Your choice! Other techniques that will be tackled include a heel flap, gusset, and Kitchener stitch. This class is perfect for beginning knitters or sock knitters who want to refine their technique.

American super-heroes have provided the creative clay for movies, TV series and TV movies in every decade since, including today’s multi-million dollar blockbusters featuring Marvel and DC icons and TV series such as “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Agents of SHIELD” and “Gotham.” Journey with a comic book expert into the legacy of super-heroes in cinema and TV – examining the good, the bad and the really bad – to learn about the rich history of this American mass culture phenomenon.

EKG Technician Training Program Meet the demand for cross-trained health professionals by adding EKG skills to your resume. Our comprehensive 60-hour EKG Technician Training Program prepares you to function as an EKG Technician. An EKG technician is a medical professional trained in operating specialized equipment used to measure the heart’s performance. Technicians work directly with patients, administer the test and provide the resulting data to physicians for analysis. Electrocardiogram (EKG) tests are critical in helping doctors determine heart health problems in patients. EKGs check the electrical activity of the heart to access heart rhythm, rate, strength and timing. They can be used to check the heart’s general health and electrical activity, and to look for signs of heart disease, heart attack, effects of medication or causes of unexplained chest pain. This non-credit course includes important practice and background information on the anatomy and physiology of the heart, medical disease processes, medical terminology, medical ethics, and legal aspects of patient contact. Students will practice with EKG equipment and perform hands-on labs including introduction to the function and proper use of the EKG machine, and other clinical practices. There is no externship component; all preparation is through lectures, online learning and hands-on training (labs). Prerequisites: Minimum 18 years of age with high school diploma or its equivalent. Prior to registering, all students must take the COMPASS reading placement test by contacting the Kirkwood Community College Test Center at 319-398-5456 in Cedar Rapids or 319-887-3642 in Iowa City.

Food for the Food: Introduction to Composting Plants need to eat before people and animals can eat food. This workshop is a fun, interactive introduction to composting and soil science principles. Roots need to absorb available nutrients from the decomposition process of organic matter, and we build organic matter when we make compost. More than half of the resources we discard in landfills are the food and paper waste ingredients (green and brown) for potential plant food. We’ll learn about affordable methods and designs easily used at home, school, or work. Worms not included. CLHG-2305 / 1 session / $10 > 86357

This class examines the economic, cultural, and policydriven reasons why we import most of our food in an agricultural state, why we bury resources for potential plant food at the rate we do, and what is being done to reverse those local food production and food waste management trends. Closing the food loop advances our economic and food security. CLHG-2340 / 1 session / $10 > 86353

LEISURE The History of American Super-Heroes in Cinema and TV Comic book super-heroes now flood American cinema and television, but this is nothing new. Their live-action escapades go back nearly eighty years in movies and on the small screen. These heroes leaped off the pages of comic books into the Saturday afternoon movie serial adventures of the 1940s with Captain Marvel, Batman, Superman and others. Their exploits continued with the Superman TV show in the 1950s, Batman in the 1960s and the Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman in the 1970s. American super-heroes have provided the creative clay for movies, TV series and TV movies in every decade since, including today’s multi-million dollar blockbusters featuring Marvel and DC icons and TV series such as “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Agents of SHIELD” and “Gotham.” Journey with a comic book expert into the legacy of super-heroes in cinema and TV – examining the good, the bad and the really bad – to learn about the rich history of this American mass culture phenomenon. CLLE-5006 / 1 session / $15
