What are Community Education Classes?

These include career and professional development programs, financial planning seminars and workshops, foreign language instruction, CPR and First Aid classes, sports and fitness, and special programs for kids and youth.

Fees are based on the instructor’s salary, enrollment, duration of the class, administrative and operating costs.
