While we pride ourselves on being THE Community’s College year round, during the month of April, we get to shout it from the rooftops!
That’s because April is community college month, and it’s the perfect time of year to celebrate all Eastern Iowa Community Colleges has to offer. We can think of no better way to do that than inviting the public to attend a class or two free of charge. It’s just our way of thanking the community for their support, and to introduce them to the many great Continuing Education classes we have available.
“Community College Month is a great time to connect with EICC,” said Paula Arends, Director of Workforce Innovation.
“Throughout the entire month of April, we will offer an opportunity for our community to learn, be entertained, and possibly plant a seed for future career or life goals.”
Classes will be conveniently offered Live Online through Zoom, meaning students can interact with their instructor and classmates face-to-face.
“Due to COVID-19, EICC is taking precautions to keep our staff, students and communities healthy. This year’s Community College Month offerings are all being offered virtually. All you need is a computer, internet access, and an email, and you can take advantage of as many sessions as you wish!” Arends said.
A wide range of classes are scheduled, with a number of times available. Each session will run anywhere from one hour to 90 minutes long. Whether students are interested in improving a skill or just want to explore something new, we have a class sure to spark their interest and curiosity.
A sampling of free classes includes:
- Information technology
- Augmented and Virtual Reality
- Healthcare Careers
- Culinary Arts
- Maintaining Your Vehicle
- Planning for College
