If I have very little collegiate experience (just 2 classes), should I still include this on my resume?

This is actually not for me... it's for my mom. I have decided to help her "Sass up" her resume. She is in the tradeshow industry; this industry is full of middle aged people who have very little to no college experience. The 2 Accounting classes were taken at a community college (years and years ago) and I'm afraid it's taking up room/taking away from the rest of her resume (20+ years of experience)... but I'm no expert. Please help! She currently resides in Colorado Springs, CO.
Hi, Jamie, how nice of you to help your mom. I think you're right... those courses aren't really adding anything to your mom's resume, unless she's looking at getting into an accounting career, in which case, she may want to use everything she can.
But assuming that's not the case, then a better use of the limited real estate on a resume is outlining her accomplishments and skills from her many years in the tradeshow industry.
