Free Courses at Hancock Help Build Career Skills

Spring classes begin Jan. 22

JANUARY 14, 2019--Allan Hancock College’s Community Education program is currently signing students up for hundreds of free courses designed to help people in the community develop in-demand career skills. The skills courses include: business skills, Microsoft Excel and Word, college preparation, GED test preparation, English as a Second Language and more.

“These classes require no tuition and no required textbook,” said Joan Bergstrom Smith, a vocational education instructor who teaches Introduction to Excel and Computers and You at the college. “I think anyone hoping to add to, or improve, their job skills would be interested in signing up.”

In addition to the career and skills courses, the college is also offering courses in sewing, quilting, painting, jewelry making and more. Some fees apply depending on the course.

The full schedule of spring classes offered through Allan Hancock College Community Education is available online for viewing by visiting and selecting Class Search. Spring classes begin the week of Jan. 22, 2019, but have ongoing start dates throughout the semester.
