MiraCosta College's Community Education & Workforce Development program is excited to announce a rich array of course offerings for the fall, aiming to empower individuals and enrich the broader community.
The Technology Career Institute (TCI) will introduce a pioneering course named 'Uniquely Abled CNC Operations' starting on September 5. Designed for individuals with high-level autism, the course teaches computer numerical control (CNC) in manufacturing, providing students with skills for a living-wage income and a pathway to independence, says Linda Kurokawa, Executive Director of Community Education and Workforce Development at MiraCosta College.
In addition to this specialized course, the Technology Career Institute will expand its curriculum with new programs set to launch next spring. These include courses in HVAC, Electrician work, Composites for aerospace fabrication, Aquaculture, and EMT Certification. Made possible through Community Projects funding secured by Congressman Mike Levin, these programs add to an existing range of certificate offerings, such as Engineering Technician, Biomedical Equipment Technician, BrewTech, Drone Operator Tech, and Machinist Technology.
Alongside these vocational courses, the Community Education & Workforce Development program is launching its "Let's Grow Together" fall schedule, offering classes across various fields like Arts and Crafts, Food and Wine, Dance, Home and Garden, Language and Literature, Recreation, and Survival Skills. The initiative also includes access to new state-of-the-art labs in Welding, BrewTech, and Food, allowing participants to gain hands-on experience with the latest equipment.
Registration for all fall classes is now open, and with limited spaces available, early sign-ups are highly encouraged.
