Keystone College has announced continuing education, professional development, and personal enrichment offerings through its new Professional Development Institute.

The Institute offers a variety of programs connecting education, employment, and enjoyment to provide industry-focused, professional development and credentialed coursework, as well as courses for recreation, leisure, and personal enrichment.

Professional development programs run the gamut from technology, including 3-D printing and computer skills, to education credentialing, including courses to obtain credentials for early care and education. Personal enrichment courses include glass blowing, ceramics, holiday table design, wreath making, first aid/CPR, and many more.

“The new Keystone College Professional Development Institute will offer something for everyone,” said Keystone College Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Karen Yarrish, Ph.D. “We offer courses to assist individuals in acquiring the additional training they need to advance their careers or gain new skills and talents. In addition, there are numerous courses to enable people to broaden their horizons, find creative outlets, and pursue new hobbies.”

Courses may be offered at the workplace or at Keystone, and can be in face-to-face, online, or hybrid formats. Also, customized credential programs can be designed for employers. To view available courses and register, visit www.keystone.edu/pdi  or contact Mary Dower at (570) 945-8380.
