EICC to celebrate Community College Month with free classes



While we pride ourselves on being THE Community’s College year round, during the month of April, we get to shout it from the rooftops!

That’s because April is Community College Month, and it’s the perfect time of year to celebrate all Eastern Iowa Community Colleges has to offer. We can think of no better way to do that than inviting the public to attend a class or two free of charge. It’s just our way of thanking the community for their support, and to introduce them to the many great Continuing Education classes we have available.

“Community College Month is a great time to connect with EICC,” said Paula Arends, Director of Workforce Innovation. “Throughout the entire month of April, we will offer an opportunity for our community to learn, be entertained, and possibly plant a seed for future career or life goals."

A wide range of classes are scheduled both in-person and live online using Zoom, with a number of times available. Each session will run anywhere from one hour to 90 minutes long. Whether you’re interested in improving a skill or just want to explore something new, we have a class sure to spark your interest and curiosity!

  • Intro to Delivering a Baby
