Through the Continuing Education Career Development division, Sandhills Community College offers classes to classes to help individuals to do their very best at a job interview, strengthen soft skills, and more. These classes are offered at a minimal cost of $75, but the fee is waived for qualified students.
Students can match current skills with an existing job or develop a training plan to learn new skills, explore career opportunities, and develop a written plan of action in “Revamp Your Career.” They will create or update their résumé, customizing it for different jobs. Students will also learn to sell themselves and stand out from other applicants in an interview. Participants will learn to deal with the stress of long-term unemployment and how to use age as an asset in their job search.
“Revamp Your Career” offers various monthly classes that are carried out online. Online classes are very similar to a traditional class, only taken from your home (or wherever your computer, tablet, or phone is located.) Most sessions are presented live. Students can interact in real-time with the instructor and fellow classmates through the camera, microphone, or typing in a chat window. They may be asked to submit assignments or projects through email.

Summer semester curriculum classes are open to current, returning, and new students. Local students attending colleges outside of the area are welcome to take courses this summer at SCC.

Moore and Hoke high school graduates who successfully complete the required number of Sandhills Promise credits when in high school are eligible to have their SCC tuition paid for two years upon high school graduation.

Many students take one or two classes each semester and transfer the credits back to their university. Classes are at no cost and can be online, hybrid, or in traditional classroom formats.
