Condo College Coming to Brickell

MDC to offer Non-Credit classes at Condominiums throughout Brickell.

Imagine finishing breakfast, lunch or dinner and hopping into the elevator and going to take a college class. Perhaps a new language class or just to improve your English, maybe learn how to really use your digital camera or develop photo-editing skills. Maybe you want to pick up the latest dance steps, exercise routines, or learn to play the guitar – all without leaving your property! No worries about traveling to campus and dealing with traffic and parking.

The Miami Dade College School of Continuing Education and Professional Development on the Wolfson Campus will soon be offering this unique opportunity to selected Brickell area condos. If you live in a development that has suitable “classroom” space and have enough neighbors that share your educational interests, you may soon have the opportunity to sign up for classes that will be offered exclusively to you and your neighbors right in your own building.

The Continuing Education and Professional Development School offers classes to more than 80,000 students throughout Miami-Dade County in a variety of subject areas including, but not limited to:

  • Foreign Languages and English as a Second Language (ESL), Business Writing
  • The Arts &… Music, Painting, Dance, Floral Design, Sewing, Interior Design…
  • Technology (computer skills or certifications, accounting, digital marketing, web page design, Photoshop, etc.)
  • Dance, Health and Fitness
  • Professional Workforce training and certifications
  • And more

Here’s how it works

If your building has the facilities and the support of your Condo Association to allow the use of this space, then the School will work with your association to survey the specific educational interests within your building (including class subjects, times and schedule). If there is enough interest within your community for specific classes (usually 12 or more people willing to sign up and pay for a particular class (priced just like the on-campus offerings) then the classes will be created and you can register with Miami Dade College (either online or on the phone).

Let the learning (and fun) begin! New classes will be offered on an on-going basis depending on the interest of the community.

If you are interested in getting this started, contact David Lotker, Chairperson of Continuing Education and Professional Development on the Wolfson campus at (305) 237-3962 or email dlotker@mdc.edu. •
