A new year brings new possibilities. This spring try one of College of the Mainland’s wide array of continuing education and senior adult classes, now open for registration.

“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, Director of Continuing Education.

Professional and technical training courses in fields such as welding, child care and health care assist students in meeting 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. Senior Adult Program classes are open to adults of any age, but trips and lectures are only open to those 55 and older.
