Workforce Development and Community Education

Learning is Lifelong

Due to the ongoing public concern related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), SUNY Schenectady has postponed or cancelled, most of the remaining Spring 2020 non-credit courses. A few courses will continue to meet virtually. All students have been notified but if you have any questions please contact the Office of Workforce Development and Community Education at 518-595-1101. Please make sure to leave a message as our office will be closed during this period. Staff will contact you as soon as possible.

We are moving forward with our Summer 2020 semester. Registration is now open for all Summer 2020 courses, including all Kid and Teen Academy courses.

At SUNY Schenectady County Community College, we offer something for everyone from craft beer to healthcare to computers and art with a focus on career and personal development programs as well as enrichment offerings.

Workforce development training helps you thrive in our economy. Choose from a variety of career programs to prepare you for jobs in healthcare, logistics or business. Classes are led by expert instructors, many who work in the fields they teach. We also partner with local & regional businesses to fulfill training needs by offering customized classes to develop employees’ knowledge, skills, and abilities or prepare them for advancement into more challenging roles.

Experience creative programs for kids and teens or personal enrichment classes that are fun, affordable, and designed for adults and seniors with varying interests. Whether your interest is in music, culinary, fitness, or sewing, meet others with similar passions and expand your horizons.
