Modesto Junior College will offer career classes in an accelerated format for the spring semester, enabling students to get certificates in real estate or office administration in one semester.

Obtaining a California Real Estate Salesperson License requires completion of three courses before taking the exam: real estate principles (RLES 380), real estate practice (RLES 381) and one other real estate course. MJC is offering the two courses in principles and practice, and another in real estate finance starting Jan. 13.

The real estate classes will run from 6:30-9:35 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through May 3.

In the area of office administration, all courses needed to satisfy the Records Management/Data Entry Specialist Certificate at MJC will be offered this semester online, in classes and through a blend of the two. All are offered in the MJC Office Administration Center on the east campus.

The courses provide entry-level job skills in the areas of records management/filing and data entry for such positions as filing clerks, records clerks, and data-entry operators.

The courses include: OFADM 301 beginning keyboarding; 302 document processing; 313 office skills; 304 professional English for business; 305 records management; 361 introduction to databases; 375 10-key on the computer, and BUSAD 300 machine calculations.

New students must complete an online college application at www.mjc.edu prior to registering for spring classes. Continuing MJC students can register now for these courses.

For more information, call Cece Hudelson, dean of the Business, Behavioral and Social Science Division, at (209) 575-6128.
