BCC offers a wide range of noncredit learning opportunities for people of all ages. Designed for self-improvement, vocational or recreational purposes, these initiatives are offered on-campus, throughout the county, and beyond. The college also participates in the economic development of Berkshire County through various collaborative efforts and an active business and industry development team.
BCC's Office of Community Education develops, coordinates, and implements noncredit initiatives. The division serves people of all ages whose educational and training needs cannot be met through traditional college-credit programs. Noncredit workshops and seminars are offered throughout the year both on- and off-campus.
Flexibility and close working relationships with community organizations, private industry and the public keep the division responsive to the needs and interests of the entire community. Sample programs are highlighted below.
