Workforce Development and Continuing Education

Lifelong Learning

Manchester Community College’s Continuing Education Division provides timely programs relevant to changing community needs and promotes MCC as a focus of lifelong learning.

The Workforce Development and Continuing Education division offers open-enrollment non-credit courses and certificate programs, custom corporate training for community businesses through the Corporate and Community Training Center, and a robust children’s program – Excursions in Learning Youth Program – for children in grades K-8.

Programs in this division are self-supporting and support the college’s mission to “advance academic, economic, civic, personal and cultural growth by providing comprehensive, innovative and affordable learning opportunities to diverse populations. We are a learning-centered community committed to access, excellence and relevance.”

Each year, more than 4,000 area residents participate in non-credit courses, seminars and workshops, as well as the many cultural activities and special educational services offered through the division. The division’s offices can be found in the John V. Gannon Continuing Education Center, located on the ground floor of the Learning Resource Center, rooms B105 and B147. For more information, email
