Lifelong Learning programming at Central Arizona College (CAC) provides courses at various CAC locations and has the following three focus areas:
1. Community Education
Dedicated to offering non-credit personal enrichment courses such as Arts, Languages, Wellness, Computer Technologies, and special interest activities. There are no entrance requirements for Community Education courses beyond an interest in the subject. Classes begin throughout the semester and vary in length and cost.
2. Workforce Education for Small Business
Offers training and activities that support business retention and expansion focused on marketing, finance, communications, and customer service/soft skills.
3. Continuing Education for Professional Licensure
This is new programming scheduled to launch with a focus on health career CEU's for professionals seeking training for license renewal. The Massage Therapy CEU course will kick off this programming in March 2019.
Most classes are held at one of the eight locations. The five campus locations include: the Signal Peak Campus in Coolidge; the Aravaipa Campus located north of Tucson along Highway 77 in the rural mountains of eastern Pinal County; the Superstition Mountain Campus in Apache Junction; the Maricopa Campus located in the growing community of Maricopa; and the San Tan Valley Campus serving the communities of San Tan Valley, Queen Creek and Florence. In addition, CAC has three centers in Casa Grande, and Florence, respectively.
Lifelong Learning will launch a new registration system in February that will make registration and payments accessible and easy for students.
