In Class Programs

Perhaps you only need training in one particular subject. Often called open enrollment, our classes and workshops offer training for a wide variety of interests throughout the year. You will find our current offerings and featured courses linked below.

Classroom Advantages

Although technology has made social interaction more accessible, those who prefer face-to-face communication will benefit most from classroom learning. The classroom experience offers more opportunities for group work and study sessions. It allows instant feedback from instructors and peers instead of waiting for a response on an online forum or email thread. The social aspect of a classroom setting promotes networking with others having similar interests. And, in some instances, it may even present new opportunities in the workplace.
