Holland College is offering a variety of credit courses in Business, Computer Studies, Health, and Community Studies.
A course of particular interest next semester is Youth Substance Abuse and Addictions, an offering of the Child Youth Care Worker program. It examines current issues in the field of substance use and abuse and provides an overview of terminology, theories of addiction, psychoactive substances, treatment options, treatment resources and prevention strategies. The skills required to become a competent helper for those who struggle with use and abuse of substances will be discussed, with emphasis on the role of the Child Youth Care professional. It will run 6–9 pm on Wednesdays from January 26–April 24. Courses such as those related to Early Childhood Care and Education are in high demand, so early registration is recommended.
