October 10, 2011
Copper Mountain College continues to offer a wide array of ongoing community education courses both on campus and online. There are several convenient and affordable options for taking advantage of these Community Education opportunities. Community Education classes are designed for students whose primary motivation for learning is personal enrichment. These classes generate no units or transcripts. For more information, call Academic Affairs at (760) 366-3791, ext. 5402 or visit www.cmccd.edu and click on Community. Registration can be done through the CMC website by printing out the registration form and mailing it or through the Student Services office on CMC’s campus from 8:00am to 6:00pm.
Classes range from an entire semester, to two-day workshops, to one day seminars and lectures. For the Fall Semester, there are 28 different offerings including; mythology, creative writing, digital photography, “Computer for Dummies,” cake decorating, cooking, child care and martial arts. “All of the classes’ instructors teach because they want to share their talents and knowledge with community,” says Debra Pfeiffer, Administrative Assistant for Academic Affairs, who handles the Community Education Program. “Our Community Ed classes are a good introduction to the College,” adds Pfeiffer. In addition to the on-campus classes, CMC hosts online community education - ed2go and Gatlin Education which offer career training courses.
The program is a self-supporting entity of the college and not funded by taxpayers’ dollars.
