Courses

Please note, for online learning sessions, in order for STC to grant credit for the course and issue a certificate of completion, your camera must be enabled for the duration of the Synchronous Sessions and you must be visible to the instructor.  This applies to all online courses offered by STC.  All asynchronous work is expected to be completed by the scheduled due date, as these assignments are often reviewed/shared in the next session.


Please click on the STC Fall 2022 Course Flyer for full descriptions of courses/workshops currently being offered. 
We are hard at work to bring more great learning opportunities to you throughout the year.  Check back soon.  Frontier and Hamburg faculty and staff will be notified of new Pro-Growth offerings directly through their school email.  Registration link for each course is found after the dates/instructor.
