Summer is the perfect time to kick back, relax and try something new. College of the Mainland’s wide array of continuing education classes for children, teens, adults and senior adults are open for registration today.

“Continuing education offers something for everyone. We offer a full range of courses from workforce courses to train individuals to enter the job market quickly to personal enrichment and fitness and recreation classes,” said Carla Boone, Dean of Continuing Education.

The Continuing Education Program offers courses in professional and technical training—such as welding, child care and health care—to help students meet their career goals. Individuals can also explore new interests with physical fitness, the arts or foreign language classes. Classes are held at the main campus in Texas City or the COM Learning Center-North County in League City.
The Senior Adult Program, located at the COM Learning Center-Delmar in La Marque, provides classes in painting, fusion glass jewelry, low-impact exercises and more. The program also sponsors trips to venues such as the Alvin Opry and Pirate Museum as well as lectures on topics seniors care about from fraud prevention to health care updates. Classes are targeted to adults 55 plus but open to adults of any age; trips and lectures are open only to those 55 and older.
