Beaufort County Community College’s Ed2Go continuing education courses make it easy to take affordable, high-quality, online, instructor-led classes. New Advanced Professional Training courses provide opportunities for professionals to advance in their field and some even give students the chance to earn industry-recognized certifications. These courses are not for university transfer and are not covered by the Beaufort Promise, but courses start for as low as $70.

Participants can enroll to fuel their curiosity, explore a new career field before committing to it, or fulfill continuing education requirements. The courses provide a fun, hands-on, and highly interactive forum for learning. The focus is on creating supportive communities for learners of all ages. During pandemic shutdowns and times of distance learning, many learners have become familiar with online courses, so the college is offering more through Ed2Go.

Ed2Go offers more than 300 instructor-led online courses in areas such as information technology, computer applications, medicine, veterinary medicine, languages, business skills, soft skills, professional development of teachers and crafts. All courses are six weeks long, project-based, and include lessons, quizzes, labs, discussion areas, and additional links. You can take the course entirely from your home or office.
