Class Schedule Updates

Posted: 8:19 AM 9/14/2022
As you likely know, we had a number of errors in our printed catalog. We are also operating in a new working environment with USCA. Those two elements have resulted in inconsistencies in our published class schedule information and in more wait-lists than we want. We apologize for those. The Center and the university are dedicated to eliminating these issues for next semester. For now, we believe you will find consistent information about the class schedule for the fall semester, regardless of where that information is published. Check anywhere in this block to go to the Catalog page for up-to-date schedules and an errata for the printed catalog. Thank you for your patience.

Course Canceled

The course Introduction to Digital Networks has been canceled for the fall semester due to insufficient enrollment.

These courses are: Exploring Windows 10, Making the Most of Your Words, Home Security, and Home Surveillance Systems. To see the changes for a specific course, click anywhere in this block and select the course name from the topical index, under the heading Technology, to display the details for that course.

We have added a second section of the course Google Picasa Photo Editing to accommodate wait-listed students. The added section will be taught on October 17 at 9:00 AM - 11:00 PM.

Volunteer Opportunity

The Center is run by volunteers. Although we “hire” some instructors, many of the instructors and coaches are volunteers. All of the Center managers are volunteers. The Center cannot function without volunteers. If you value the product the Center provides to the community, come join us. We all just enjoy the satisfaction of helping others learn new things and develop new skills.

If you do not believe you could stand in front of a class, or even work with students at their desks one on one, there are still many volunteer needs at the Center. As with any organization, we need volunteers who are willing to serve on committees to decide what we teach and how we teach it. The Center requires the full spectrum of skills that any organization needs: president, secretary, treasurer, classroom material writer, curriculum developer, publicity leader, and more. Here are examples of volunteer opportunities.

Class Liaisons Volunteers You become a member of the General Interest Curriculum Committee. You assist in the development of information regarding the semester’s General Interest courses, events, and instructors and serve as the communication link between the University, the Center, and the instructors.

Your assistance may be in the areas of course development, or presentation (coaching or instructing).
