Additionally, various short-term certificate programs, youth enrichment, and other special focused programs are presented to help individuals achieve personal enrichment and professional development.
“Our instructors and staff are committed to creating a learning environment that promotes an exciting and stimulating learning experience, stated Anthony Arminiak, Regional Campus President. “These programs and seminars provide quality instruction that can impact your daily life at home and in the workplace.”
Community education may be sponsored by the college, some other agency using the college facilities, or jointly by the college and some outside group. It may be provided on campus or off campus, or through television, the newspapers, or radio. It may center on education or recreation, or programs for personal interests or for the benefit of a specific business or the entire community.
“Some of the classes we offer at the Downriver Campus and Ted Scott Campus include Drawing I, Digital Photography, Hath Yoga, Flower Design, Intro to Sewing, Jewelry making, and Zumba, just to name a few,” stated Arminiak, “And WCCCD in-district seniors (60 and older) get free tuition for CE classes, however, some exceptions do apply.”
