Real-world instructors

Not only do they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in their fields, but most live and work right here in Whatcom and Skagit Counties and are able to provide insight into the local business community. As student evaluations consistently attest, our instructors know their subjects and are experts at bringing out the best in busy adult learners.
