📢 NEXT COHORT: Fall 2024 📢

Keep learning with us at Continuing Education and Business Services of Champlain College Lennoxville. Expand your skills; be more fulfilled with your work and with yourself. We have your learning opportunities just a click away!


Did you know that in the late 1970’s, Champlain Regional College Lennoxville’s Continuing Education Services started offering courses to the public? Results show that adults who truly desire to better themselves often dive into new learning situations with energy and determination. It had become apparent that an adult who returns to school does not come back to waste their time.


It has been many years now that we have been providing quality training tailored to the needs of the Townships workforce. In addition to our courses, the College now offers many services to individuals and businesses.


Just as individuals must change to keep up to date, so must our services. Many of the course listings you will find are specific responses to past requests from the community we serve, and we encourage you to make suggestions for new offerings you would like to see.


Since June 2016, the Continuing Education and Business Services programs are all under one roof; the Lennoxville Campus is our home now!


The Continuing Education department has also formed a collaboration with the Lennoxville Vocational Training Center. With this collaboration, we hope to better serve the needs of our Anglophone community, as well as the businesses in the Townships. We would like to encourage business owners to share with us their needs so that we can help them offer their employees and their clients a great working atmosphere and great services. At the Champlain’s Continuing Education department, we have learning opportunities- all you need to do is contact us!

Vos possibilités en formation chez nous ne sont qu’à un clic!


La formation continue à Champlain remonte à la fin des années 1970. Nous savons donc depuis longtemps que les gens qui cherchent à s’améliorer et à mieux performer se lancent dans des démarches de formation avec énergie. Ces personnes n’ont pas l’intention de retourner en classe pour y perdre leur temps.


Nos services ont évolué au fil des années et vous découvrirez que nos offres tiennent compte de demandes précises de notre milieu. En ce sens, n’hésitez pas à nous communiquer vos suggestions et besoins en formation!


Depuis juin 2016, la formation continue et les services aux entreprises sont maintenant logés à la même enseigne que le Collège Champlain de Lennoxville. Notez que le stationnement est gratuit sur le campus après 17 h.


Les personnes intéressées à une formation ou à un programme crédité à la formation continue doivent posséder un diplôme d’études secondaires ou un équivalent reconnu par le Collège, elles doivent avoir au moins 18 ans et avoir quitté l’école depuis au moins un an.


Nous avons établi une entente collaborative avec le Centre de formation professionnelle Lennoxville (Voc-ed), ce qui nous permet d’offrir de la formation en anglais à la communauté estrienne. Si vous êtes en entreprise et que vous souhaitez obtenir de la formation en anglais, nous sommes à votre entière disposition.
