About Catoctin College

Catoctin College is an educational platform for professional development, grouping classes and courses by industry and audience. This allows people to learn content that is more tailored to their work and professional success.

As part of our mission, Catoctin partners with people, businesses, and organizations to share knowledge, and help people improve their skills.

Within the Catoctin platform and community, you can take courses based on your industry, role, and categories. Our goal is to increase our class and course offerings to have as complete a curriculum as possible.

At the start, our primary audiences are: Entrepreneurs and Start-Ups, Government Contractors, Environmental, Healthy, and Sustainable Living (LOHAS), Non-Profits / Industry Associations, and people interested in motivation and productivity.

Our instructors are working every day to add new content, and we are actively recruiting new teachers to also add to our academic library.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/5″][vc_tta_accordion spacing=”5″ gap=”5″ active_section=”1″ title=”Frequently Asked questions”][vc_tta_section title=”What does the word “Catoctin“ in your business name mean? Where did that come from?” tab_id=”1549238147249-3147eba9-486e”][vc_column_text]Catoctin (kə-TOK-tən) is a name of an Algonquian origin, and is used to describe many parts of Loudoun County, Virginia and Frederick, Maryland. 

The actual name “Catoctin” is believed to come from the Kittoctons who were an American Indian tribe or clan that used to live in the area.

Local traditions translate the word to mean: place of many deer.

In founding the educational platform, it was decided to use Catoctin, since it is a common name and connects to the place where the business was founded.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”How do I take a course at Catoctin College?” tab_id=”1549238147271-5361affd-a2cd”][vc_column_text]Classroom courses are available on the day they are scheduled, but also may be taken online since the lessons are recorded. Other classes are available only on-demand.

In most cases, a class or course does not have a deadline. However, there are exceptions. For example, one of the Webinar courses requires that a Webinar actually take place within a specific time-frame (otherwise the course may never end). If you are unsure about the availability of a class, the frequency with which it meets, or other aspects, please let us know.

Enrollment is always available at Catoctin College for all classes visible on the website.

What’s more, you are free to learn at your own pace.

which means that you can enroll in the courses that interest you and learn at your own pace. You can begin the course whenever you like, and there are no deadlines to complete it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Is Catoctin College an accredited institution?” tab_id=”1549259107174-c327d59f-dd36″][vc_column_text]No, Catoctin College is not an accredited academic institution, and this is by design.

Accreditation boards and organizations institute curriculum requirements for degrees, which will increase the time you need to obtain a degree and cost. Hence, we offer professional knowledge around specific interests, industries and professional roles.

What’s more, we also test through “project-based assessment” which we believe is a better reflection of knowledge learned than a standardized test.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”What if I don’t like a course I purchased?” tab_id=”1549259454523-644492a3-cfae”][vc_column_text]We want you to be satisfied. However, in most cases we cannot offer refunds once you start a class or course.

You can still make a request for a refund after a class or course has started, however, we cannot guarantee you will receive a refund, or that the refund will be 100% of your payment.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
