When do EMT courses start?

When are classes canceled?

The Continuing Education Department makes every effort to maintain the schedule announced in our tabloid.  If a class does not have sufficient enrollment to justify holding the class, we reserve the right to cancel, combine, or change the class schedule.  If the class you registered for is cancelled you will be contacted and a 100% refund will be processed.

How do I pay for classes?

NCC’s Continuing Education Division accepts cash, checks, money orders, MasterCard, VISA, and Discover cards for payment of tuition and materials. Payment must be made at the time of registration.

Why do you want so much information when I take a class, particularly social security number and birth date?

It is important to you and us that we keep all your courses and accounting information together under one name, yours. In many cases, looking up a person by first and last name will return many people with the same name. People also use nicknames and change their name, address and phone numbers. If we duplicate your information or put your information under another person, or add another person’s information to your record, your transcripts and bills will be wrong.
