    Continuing Education



    Students participating in the College’s craft beer making courses have had their creations judged by AHA/BJCP standards.

    The Continuing Education department often offers “enrichment” programs and other courses designed to provide participants with personal growth opportunities.  These are short, non-credit programs offered during evening or weekend hours.

    Previous enrichment programs have covered topics including life and retirement planning, IRS exam preparation, Spanish for the pre-hospital care provider, Spanish courses for College staff members, and craft beer making.

    To learn what types of enrichment courses are currently being offered, contact Katie Lavelle, Assistant to the Dean of Continuing Education, at (570) 961-7882.
