The Mid-Plains Community College (MPCC) Imperial Extended Campus catalogue of fall classes is hitting the e-mail and regular mail. Registrations are currently being taken for classes.

Classes for credit at the Imperial campus include Calligraphy Basics with Susan Hanson of Elsie; Basic Anatomy and Physiology with Tara Sutton of Ogallala; Personal Finance with Lorrie Mowry of McCook; Business Law I with Glynn Wolar of North Platte; Modern Elementary School Math I with Lynn Salyer of McCook;

Expository Writing with Cathy Howard of Imperial; Memoir and Family Writing with Renae Bottom of Imperial; Standard First Aid/CPR with Billie Hayes of Imperial; American History I to 1877 with Chet DeVaughn of McCook; and MIG and TIG Welding with Jason Speck of Imperial.

Imperial Extended Campus Coordinator Brenda Ledall noted that there are more for-credit classes in Imperial this semester with more distance learning classes.

Some students need a class to complete a degree, so Ledall tries to schedule that class. “On-line is great, but some people need face-to-face contact,” she noted.

Ledall also pointed out that the Imperial campus is not only receiving distance learning, but is sending classes out, also, as in Howard’s case.

Computer classes that are for credit include Google Docs and iLife Suite Intermediate with Jan Coone of Wauneta and Microsoft Excel and Using Internet with Alyssa Stanley of Lamar.

An informational meeting will be held Aug. 27 at the Imperial campus for those interested in taking the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) class.

Two Lunch and Learn classes will be held from 12 noon to 1 p.m. Brenda Ketchem of Ogallala will teach “I’m On a NonProfit Board...Now What?,” while Jan Coone of Wauneta will teach “Is Your Business on the Google Map?”

Other Community Education classes include Maintaining a Healthy Body Weight with Lori Lane of Imperial; The Home Improvement Club with Stephanie Rau of Imperial; Managing Multiple Priorities and Projects with Tina Walker of North Platte; The Seven Steps to Connect with Karla Maddux; and Dutch Oven Cooking with Dan Kuhlmann of Imperial.

As in the past, MPCC Imperial Extended Campus offers an ESL/GED class. The class allows persons to study for a GED, improve skills for college or work, or communicating in English.

Dates and times of the classes may be found in the brochure.


Medication Aide

A class not listed in the brochure is for those who have completed their Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA) certificate. The Medication Aide class, taught by Angie Paisley of Imperial, will be held July 30-Aug. 8 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Imperial campus.

Paisley teaches nurses how to dispense medications and give oxygen. Those interested must pre-register. The cost of the class is $276.

For more information about any of the classes, for a brochure, or to register, contact Ledall at (308) 882-5972.
