The primary objective of CBWCL is to plan and promote full use of college resources to assist individual, business, industry, and community growth through training and education. All programs are intended to enrich, strengthen, and support those who are not served by the traditional instructional activities of the College.

We offer courses that cover the complete spectrum of interests including academic, cultural, business related, occupational licensing, regulatory requirements, art, music, physical fitness, travel, gardening, and local history.
