This Winter/Spring 2019 course catalogue again contains a wide selection of courses from career and job training programs and business seminars, to drawing and painting, guitar, photography, stained glass, floral arrangement, language courses, and DIY home improvement workshops.

Again, we have the largest selection of computer courses in the province, and as a Microsoft Certification Testing Centre, students can not only complete individual courses and programs, but also obtain Microsoft certification, the only globally recognized standards-based credential for validating computer proficiency. We are now offering training in the new “on-line” versions of both QuickBooks and Sage 50 computerized accounting. As more and more businesses move from desktop software to online, you’ll be ready.

We are excited that Kevin Boyd, the US eBay expert, is again making Langley his only Canadian eBay and Website course offering. It’s also exciting to see students from the Dental Receptionist and the Building Service Worker programs have job offers before they even finish their last class. This term, there is also a wide range of new watercolour painting courses.

For the first time we are also offering beginner level courses in Farsi, the spoken language in Persian countries, and also Punjabi. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to greet and have a basic level conversation with a neighbour, or co-worker or friend whose first language is Punjabi or Farsi?

The need for lifelong learning has never been greater, and it is satisfying to see so many people enrolling in courses that balance their lives and get them out of the house, reduce stress, and give them a chance to meet new friends.

A big “thank you” as well, to the school Administrators and Custodians, where Continuing Education courses are taught. “Special thanks” to the daytime classroom teachers who acknowledge the importance of lifelong learning for the adults of their community and assist by sharing their classrooms.
