Community Education at COCC
Community Education at COCC offers personal enrichment opportunities to nurture and grow your interests — no matter your age, background, or experience level.
Our classes are engaging and diverse, and we offer both in-person and online learning opportunities. Study a foreign language or discover how to cook a new dish. Learn about gardening in Central Oregon or take a creative art course. Interested in group fitness, outdoor recreation, or photography? We have numerous options to feed your curiosity and expand your skills. COCC’s Community Education also offers Heartsaver® First Aid CPR/AED courses and Basic Wilderness Life Support training, as well as Central Oregon Summer Spanish Immersion (COSSI), Youth Camps, and more.
Studies have shown that continuing your education keeps your brain healthy and helps you feel connected, fulfilled, and happy. Bring a friend and engage with like minds.
