and Community Education

Browse Our Winter 2016 Schedule

One of the fastest growing segments of the labor market is the age 50 and older worker.  This program offers courses designed for those who are 50 and older who want to or are being required to return to work or even change careers. Classes include Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, QuickBooks, Keyboarding as well as Internet and computer basics. We also offer courses in job hunting, transitioning to a new career and financial management. Check the schedules on the left side of this page for detailed information.

NEW! Shoreline will unveil a broader Community Education Program for Winter Quarter! Along with our Career Builder courses (computer training, and business and professional development offerings), we’re launching courses to hone writing skills, improve and maintain mental and physical health, reveal lesser known regional history, and lots more. Plus 50 offerings begin at the start of Winter Quarter, with our new Community Education courses beginning in February and March. Browse the Winter schedule, and stay tuned in coming weeks for added courses and more details! 


Shoreline also offers continuing education through online course offerings with our partner, ed2go
