Welcome to Eastern West Virginia Community & Technical College's Community Education and Continuing Education Programs. Eastern offers a variety of non-credit courses and activities to encourage lifelong learning. Because these programs connect individuals in our communities who have developed expertise and skills in a particular activity with others who wish to learn, we call this program Community Connections!.

If you love to learn new things, but hated all those tests in school, Community Education courses are right for you! Courses have a short duration and are designed to meet the specific interests of area residents. There will not be any tests!! Learn new skills and have fun in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere.

Community Education classes provide a great opportunity to increase your personal knowledge, learn a new skill, meet new friends, spend time with family and friends, or just enjoy doing something new. These classes are designed with you in mind! If you do not see the class you are looking for, let us know so we can work to meet your educational needs. 

For more information about Community Education or Continuing Education, call us at:
