A Message from the Leadership Team

Beginning in March, some LWTC courses will fall under the Community Education umbrella. Therefore, we will be registering students, accepting payments through Lumens, and assisting students with registration issues, concerns, or questions. Classes coming over in the Spring are: Welding, Basic Life Support, PC Pro 1, PC Pro 2, Network Pro, and Routing and Switching Pro. We are excited to increase our class offerings to the community.
