KLAMATH FALLS — Klamath Community College is committed to adhering to recommendations and guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of our students. In addition to modifications to the college’s spring term academic calendar, workforce and community education course delivery is being modified to adapt to this rapidly evolving situation.

Until further notice, all KCC community education personal interest classes are canceled. Workforce, general equivalency diploma (GED) and English as a Second Language (ESL) services will continue in a modified format.

The nature of workforce development courses require that they are delivered in a face-to-face format, meaning they cannot be transitioned to online learning. In an effort to ensure students and community members continue to receive the training they need, workforce courses that were slated to start March 30 now have a delayed start date of April 20. The courses include:

• Carpentry Level 1

• Core Curriculum Intro to Craft Skills

• CPR for Healthcare Providers

• Creating a Customer Experience Program

• Flagger and Work Zone Traffic Control

• Introduction to Computers

• Microsoft – Outlook

• Phlebotomy

• Pharmacy Tech

• RT-130

To ensure GED and ESL students are aligned with the college’s updated academic calendar, GED and ESL offered through KCC’s Klamath Center for Education and Training will begin on April 6. Online GED and ESL courses are in development, but are not yet available.

The center requires all new GED and ESL students to complete a placement test, which will be available in-person, at the KCC campus on March 30 and 31. Center staff will adhere to COVID-19 guidelines and ensure testing groups remain within recommendation guidelines and appropriate distance between individuals is maintained.

To register for a placement test or for more information, contact the Klamath Center for Education and Training at kcet@klamathcc.edu or 541-880-2366.
