Continuing Education provides courses, training, and workshops that speak to the needs of our community.

Continuing Education works with area businesses and industries to offer non-credit courses to help increase the skill level of the region’s workforce. Personal enrichment courses are also available. 

Online Classes

When evaluating your goals, online classes can be the method to reach them. Online classes typically have low student-to-teacher ratios and flexible scheduling. They’re a convenient way to add skills to re-enter the workforce or to advance your skills.
