Continuing Education and Workforce Development
This division offers noncredit courses in continuing education—also commonly referred to as “community education,” “adult education,” or “lifelong learning.” Most classes are grade-free and exam-free, except licensure/certification offerings.
Students can take courses to enhance their careers or to explore a personal interest or hobby. Parents can enroll their children ages 7 to 17 in Kids On Campus classes.
Business executives can arrange training for groups of staff members on the company site or at the college’s business training facilities. They can send employees to existing classes, and can also arrange to have a special section of an existing class set aside just for them. HCC can also create customized training tailored specifically to the organization and its industry.
