Online Education

Northwest Iowa Community College offers online continuing education courses available through Gatlin Education Services and ed2go.

NCC, in partnership with Gatlin Education Services (GES), offers online, open enrollment programs designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional caliber positions for many in-demand occupations.

These programs are designed by a team of professionals from each respective field, who work with an existing textbook or base to provide the most effective web-based learning experience. Instructors/mentors are actively involved in the students’ online learning experience. They respond to any questions or concerns as well as encourage and motivate students to succeed.

Each program has a set of lessons and tests; grades are a combination of computer-graded tests and the instructor/mentor’s evaluation of the students’ work. Students love the quality as well as the convenience of anytime, anywhere learning.
