Ongoing changes in technology, and career and job requirements, create the need for life-long learning for individuals in both occupational and vocational areas. The Workforce Development and Community Education Division is responsible for responding to these needs by providing services to individuals, organizations, businesses, and industries within Alleghany, Ashe, and Wilkes counties. Tailored to the needs of our service area, the courses range from basic skills to advanced courses in various technical fields. In addition, a range of vocational courses are offered that are designed to meet the needs and interests of the citizens of the region.
These are non-curriculum courses that provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and are made available whenever there are a sufficient number of students interested in a specific subject area.
Adults may also attend these courses to improve vocational and practical skills. These courses are available to adults 18 years old or older.
