It doesn’t have to be overwhelming!  Contact North representative, Annette Morrison, brings her expertise to the CEC office on September 22nd to answer questions about online learning, and how to earn a degree, diploma or certificate, or upgrade skills, all online!  Interested?  Call Annette to book a time – 1-855-451-7516.
