During a short ceremony under the patronage of MP for North Abaco, Renardo Curry, students who took College of The Bahamas semester courses in Accounting I and Human Resources I, were awarded their certificates of completion. The event took place next to the COB office, at the marina’s reception area of Mangoes Restaurant and Boutique, during the evening of September 4. A group of supporters and people interested in taking courses were also present.
Rosnelle Simmons, the instructor for Human Resources I handed out certificates to six persons who had completed the course with top grades. More students took the course but were unable to attend the reception. Each person having completed Accounting I, received his or her certificate from their instructor, Christopher Glinton.
As certificates were handed out, Mr. Curry personally congratulated each recipient.
The representative for College of the Bahamas on Abaco, Dr. Chervon Mackey- Morley informed the audience that people could presently register for the next level courses, since classes had not started yet. She handed out application forms, reminding the interested parties that half of the tuition was due in advance and the other half before the end of the course. She went on to explain the regulations of the applying process, mentioning also that five people were required for a course to be held on Abaco.
She reminded the assembly that she held the COB Office open Monday to Friday from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm, so people could come and check on classes and bring their payment.
A few people registered for Human Resources II. They agreed with Mrs. Simmons who will be the instructor again, that the class could be held as the previous one, each Wednesday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Accounting II which is to take place twice weekly for two hours each time with Mr. Glinton did not bring as much interest, but the course is still being offered as well as Accounting I and Human Resources I. Other courses presently offered for a ten week semester are Electrical Phase I, Business Communications and Pre-School Licensing.
Classes will take place as usual at Abaco Central High School in Murphy Town and will start the last week of September.
