I’m pleased to announce that starting this fall, SMC Community Ed will be offering courses designed to meet the needs of beginners seeking to launch a career in the field of IT and courses for more seasoned professionals that are seeking to add a nationally recognized certification.

The courses are being offered through a new – and unique – partnership with SimpliLearn (formerly Market Motive) that allows us to offer specially priced bundled courses. All the courses are online and self-paced.

Among the bundle of courses to be offered is Project Management Specialist, which will include classes in PMP, Microsoft Project 2013 and Agile Scrum Master. This bundle of courses is designed for those with five years of related experience.

Also to be offered will be Big Data Specialist, which will include classes in Big Data Hadoop & Spark Developer and Data Science with Python. It is appropriate for a learner with fluency in Core Java, and some amount of familiarity with Python and Scala but not necessarily fluency.

The beginner courses are offered through California’s Eligible Training Provider List. Please contact us at or (310) 434-3400 for more information.
