Community Interest courses at the Assiniboine Community College offer members of the community the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills with others.
Director of ACC Parkland Campus Gabe Mercier says that the college believes there are many people that would like to do just that. “They come and talk to us about it, we can help them put a course outline together and then we can help with marketing the program or the course. If it’s acceptable to the community it can be delivered.”
Mercier says that the college has offered the community interest courses in the past, one example being a welding project class offered about two years ago.
