C-CORE is celebrating its 25th anniversary. It has grown from
its early roots in cold ocean resources research to a leading
research and development organization, supporting Canadas
oil and gas, mining, pipelines, fishery and forestry sectors.
From initial programs off Newfoundland and Labrador, C-COREs
geographical scope has expanded to the rest of Canada, the United
States, Europe, Asia and even into space. Current activities
include applied research and development in intelligent systems,
remote sensing, geotechnical and ice engineering and technology

Professionals in the career development field will soon be able
to upgrade their skills from the comfort of their own communities
through Memorial Universitys School of Continuing Education.
The school is accepting registration now for its first Web-based
course for the certificate in Career Development.
The certificate was developed in response to the significant
changes taking place in the field. New models for career
development practice and the demands of a rapidly changing and
challenging economy have made the need to upgrade more pressing
than ever, said program developer Diana Deacon.
Classes for the program began in January on the St. Johns
campus. Since that time, four different courses have been offered
Career Development, Assessment in Career Development,
The Nature of Work, the Workforce and the Workplace and Interpersonal
The program will go on-line in January 2001 and classes will
still be available on campus.
Weve been working from the outset to make the certificate
available by distance. So many career development professionals
are scattered throughout this province that we designed the program
to provide equal access professional development, said
