continuing education & workforce development

The Continuing Education & Workforce Development Division at Roanoke-Chowan Community College offers educational, career, and personal development opportunities designed to address the needs and interest of individuals in the area communities.

We offer an array of non-credit courses and certificate programs in such areas as: Allied Health, Business and Industry Services, College and Career Readiness, Human Resources Development, Public Safety Programs, and the Small Business Services.

We also offer an array of personal enrichment classes that are entertaining, fun, and can teach an individual new skills and hobbies. Courses options span and include areas in art, dance, fitness, language, music, religion, safety and more based on community interest. Requests and suggestions for new courses are always welcome!

Most courses are available at a reasonable cost and may be offered when 10 to 15 people express interest and an instructor is available. Some of our offerings are free such as the small business courses and seminars offered by the Small Business Center.

We invite you to explore the course offerings by the Division and to join the thousands of others who have enjoyed our student-centered atmosphere and focus on academic excellence. For more information, please contact us at
