Elder College courses filling fast

Still time to enrol

There is still time to enrol in some of the exciting courses being offered by Comox Valley ElderCollege. Courses in such varied topics as beer, botany, artists demonstrations, Spanish for seniors, or feeling well through laughter, still have opportunity to register. Courses have varied starting dates, so little or nothing will have been missed.

Registration for a course can be done either in person in Discovery Hall at North Island College or online. Online, start with nic.bc.ca/eldercollege and follow the Registration path. This will lead to a choice of Course Type (ElderCollege) and Location (Comox Valley) then submit for a list of courses.  Each course will have a final column with numbers such as 25/6.  This indicates that in a class offering 25 seats, there are still six places left. It is then clear which courses are available.

ElderCollege courses are low cost, fun and totally free of any grades or tests.  It is an opportunity for meeting new friends, and learning new material – laughter, friendship and new knowledge.
