Mt. Blue Adult Education is announcing an Orientation on June 2 for students who would like to enter the following programs in the fall: CRMA, CNA, CNA-Med Tech and College Transitions (descriptions of these courses may be read below). The Orientation will take place at the Adult Learning Center from 9:00-3:00 with lunch being served. The program will include introduction to the staff and the Adult Ed Program, educational testing and class placement. The four courses will begin in September with dates to be announced. The purpose of this early Orientation is to ensure that students may begin classes early in the fall rather than waiting for the first Adult Basic Education Orientation in September. The June 2 Orientation is also open to anyone else who may be interested in pursuing their HiSET (formerly GED) Diploma; however classes will be limited after June 25 for the summer and there is no HiSET testing from June 26 through August 31.
The next Orientation for fall classes will be on September 9 from 9:00-3:00. Anyone interested in attending Adult Ed may call 778-3460 to register. The Adult Ed Office will be closed in July and August.
