Community Non-Credit Courses

It has been several years since the Champlain College Continuing Education department has 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.

Course Content

These classes are designed to meet the individual needs of the student whether a beginning potter interested in creating your first work of art or a more experienced potter wanting to improve your skills. Dress for a mess! Fees include materials.
