Course Information

MGCCC in partnership with MAIN utilizes Intel’s AI for Workforce curriculum and offers courses on Canvas. Each course is comprehensive, covering 64 hours of content over 16 weeks (16 modules). Progression through the course requires completing the prior module (e.g., Week 1 must be completed before Week 2). The Canvas courses are unmonitored and do not have an active instructor, allowing for flexible, self-paced learning. Participants will engage with content through slides and supplemental videos and complete assessments through discussions, quizzes, and assignments. These courses are open now and last throughout the fiscal year, to June 30, 2025.
