After a long break, are you considering going back to school? Need some help with math or technological literacy? College of the Canyons (COC) can help.
COC offers classes, even free courses, for people of all ages who are looking for a great education or even just a bit of extra knowledge after taking a break from school.
“On the [continuing education] side, we have our basic skills which is our GED classes,” said COC Dean of Academic Innovation and Continuing Education and Instruction Office Dianne Avery. “So if you want to prepare for the GED test…Then we have our college skills for those incoming students that want to learn about money management or online learning strategies.”
Avery visited the KHTS Hometown Morning Show studio, during which she discussed the many ways COC offers opportunities to students of any age, from teens to those who have retired.
“We also have English and Math support, so if you’re just going back to school and you can’t remember how you did Algebra way back in the day,” Avery said. “And then we have classes for adults 55 and older.”
Some of these learning opportunities are COC’s School of Personal and Professional Learning. This school features free non-credit classes to help them hone their professional skills or explore passions.
These courses are free to those who want to enroll, whether you are looking to break into a new line of work or merely want to expand knowledge.
While these classes are free of charge, they do not count towards a traditional college degree.
Some of the knowledge and skills-based classes offered are Adobe Photoshop Certification, Law Enforcement Technologies, Excel training, Spanish for Healthcare Workers and even Theater.
These are just a few of the many courses this program offers at COC.
