Grand County Higher Education announces their fall line-up of classes


Grand County Higher Education is rolling out their fall courses, and there is something for everyone! New this fall is the opportunity to take a course for college credit or earn a Certificate and Badge. Grand County Higher Education (GCHE) provides certification for many of its courses to help individuals build their resume and career opportunities. “Certification comes in the form of a digital certificate that can be printed and a digital badge that can be placed on a resume, website, or online portfolio, and can be shared with business networks. Certification is a great way to promote skills and continue to build upon a resume and increase career opportunities,” said Darcee Kissler, GCHE’s executive director. “Additionally, a new-formed relationship with Adams State University is adding a whole new dimension to learning in Grand County.”
