Online Training

Anytime, Anywhere - You're There

Imagine being able to update your professional skills, prepare for a new career, or even learn just for fun while in the comfort of your own home or office…no class schedule, no babysitter, no traffic! The Northwest College Center for Training and Development offers FOUR types of online learning options that allow you to learn where you want and when you want.

None of our online courses require you to be online at a specific time. Some of our courses start anytime, while others have specific monthly start dates.

Some courses require textbooks, software, or other materials - please see individual course listings for specific information.

All of our online courses offer CEU credits and many of them have been approved for PTSB credits.

More information available on the Cody class schedule page.

    We’re also beginning to put together a slate of non-credit classes for community members looking to build skills, enhance talents, or simply to pursue personal growth.  At this early stage, we already have Conversational Spanish, Public Speaking for Community and Business Leaders, PhotoBook 101, Archiving Family Memories, The Art & Science of People and Digital Photography.  Most of these classes begin in October. Stay tuned for more opportunities to learn, and as always, reach out to us if you have ideas for classes you would like to see being offered.
