Winter/Spring calendar released

The Community Education & Workplace Training calendar is arriving to mailboxes in the West Kootenay-Boundary this week. There are more than 600 courses, seminars and workshops to choose from in the 100-page booklet.

The calendar offers community education, Employment Skills Access, workplace training and contract training. The beautifully designed booklet is a one-stop shop for those looking to further their skills and knowledge.

Something for Everyone

Examples of community education include courses in drawing, bookkeeping for small business, geocaching for families, understanding Facebook, the best gardening practices and proper nutrition.

“There is really something for everyone and something for people of all ages,” says Neelin. “And we are very fortunate to have so many talented instructors in our own communities to teach these courses.”

Courses, seminars and workshops are offered throughout the region in Castlegar, Nelson, Trail, Nakusp, Grand Forks, Kaslo and in communities on the East Shore (Riondel, Crawford Bay, Gray Creek and Boswell). The courses run from January until summer.
