Caldwell-West Caldwell Continuing Education Introduces New Programs


New online registration and payment process makes it easier to register for new courses or old favorites at the Adult Continuing Education program in West Caldwell.

WEST CALDWELL, NJ — The long-running Caldwell-West Caldwell school district’s Adult Continuing Education program recently received a facelift by introducing new courses to complement long-time favorite offers as well as introducing a new online registration and payment option.

Under the direction of Jim Casalino, 30 new courses were offered during the 2016-2017 school year, and an additional 17 new courses will be offered this fall.

“We did a lot of research to see what types of courses people might be interested in taking,” said Casalino. “The new course offerings include a wide variety of self-improvement, certification and just-for-fun options. This fall, we have something for everyone.”

Also new this fall, participants will be able to register and pay online.

“We are still mailing brochures to our surrounding communities, and payments can still be mailed in,” said Casalino. “However, we wanted to provide one-stop shopping for everyone. Now, you can see the courses offered, register and pay all from our secure website.”

In addition, three in-person registration nights are also available: Aug. 29, Sept. 6 and Sept. 7, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. In-person registration takes place at James Caldwell High School, West Caldwell, in room 105.

“We want to meet the needs of as many people as possible,” said Casalino.

Additionally, registration is first-come, first-serve, so participants are encouraged to register quickly.

“If there is a course that you definitely want or need to take, we encourage you to use the online payment option,” said Casalino. “Online payment process more quickly and you will be guaranteed a spot in the course.”

Popular courses include the Introduction to Water and Wastewater certification course, Boating Safety certification (Northern NJ Sail & Power Squadron), Red Cross Adult/Infant CPR/AED certification, Italian, Spanish, French, Drawing, Water­‐Based Painting, Wine Tasting Appreciation, Making of Lemoncello, The Confident Public Speaker, Voice­overs, Beer Tasting Appreciation, Qigong and more.

Additional courses offered this fall include SORA Security License, Interactive Genealogical Lectures, The History of American Political Parties, Water Operator Review Course, Better Sleep with Hypnosis, Google Applications for Efficiency, Pickleball, Auto Maintenance, Introduction to Woodworking and Healthy Life through Clean Living.

The program also features some well-known names from within and outside of the community.

“We are excited to announce that Diane Lang will be instructing three new courses this fall,” said Casalino. “Positive Psychology ­‐ Finding Your Happiness, The Challenge of Change, and Dealing with Negative People.”

Lang, a therapist, counselor, educator and author, is an expert in multiple mental health, lifestyle and parenting needs. Lang is also an adjunct professor at Montclair State University and Dover Business College, and plans to teach additional courses during the program’s spring session.

Last spring, well-known fitness instructor Carol Michaels also joined the program, offering courses in Pilates, strength training and stretching. Carol has more than 20 years of health and fitness experience teaching a wide range of exercise methods for all skill levels.

The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
