Professional Development

If you're looking to increase your team's skills or stay up-to-date with the latest trends, our professional development opportunities are open to you, your employees and community members.

Open Enrollment Business Training

Corporate & Community Services strives to offer topics that will enhance your performance. We provide a customer-focused experience, innovative programming and a responsive team.

Our non-credit classes are taught throughout the year at the various Joliet Junior College campus locations. This provides you with many opportunities to take the classes that best fit your needs and career goals.

Community & Continuing Education Catalog

The easiest way to see all that we offer is to read our catalog. Our continuing education catalog is published three times a year. Printed copies are mailed directly to those on our mailing list. An interactive version is also available online.
