But, I would remind everyone- classes fill up fast, so don’t delay. Go online and register as soon as possible.”

The college also has three new certificate programs pending approval through the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office in Mechanical Craft, Industrial Maintenance and Industrial Automation,” explained the Chancellor.
