Continuing Education

All courses will be offered via Zoom.  Supplies will be provided and mailed to students.

Please complete the registration form (attached) - for non-fillable areas (marital status, gender, etc.) please use the highlighter to complete (right click).  Please use the attached schedule for course number, name, etc.  Please use your mouse or laptop to do the best you can with the signature.  The form is created so you wouldn't need to print it to complete it – to “save” it though you need to “print” as a .pdf to retain your specific information otherwise you will email a blank form back.  If you have questions on how to do this please let me know, email completed forms to ext@lco.edu.

All 1 credit courses are $63 and billed by the Bursar’s office.  The traditional arts, road construction certificate, and youth programs have grants and scholarships available to those students and the $63 tuition is waived.

Youth Program Recruitment – National Summer Transportation Institute

The National Summer Transportation Institute will definitely look different this year than in past years due to COVID19. 

Parents/guardians will need to provide transportation for students to and from the LCOOC campus.

Dates are 7/13-7/23 for students in grades 6&7 (entering those grades in the fall)  - Monday – Thurs 9a-3p

7/27-August 6 – for students entering grades 8&9 – Monday – Thursday from 9am-3pm

Students will learn a lot about transportation safety and create a public service announcement video that we share on YouTube, etc.  They go through a short media training and come up with the storyboard, etc.


Students will do a lot of hands-on activities – building solar cars, building bridges, coding and robotics, building model airplanes, a lot of engineering activities, learning about intelligent transportation systems, etc.


We may, depending on parents/guardians be able to do a bicycle day trip and/ or kayaking.

For students to apply they need to follow this link and complete the information with their parent/guardian.  Click this link to apply: https://forms.gle/A7JE46CCGnppofnk8

Please let me know if you have any questions – and please share!
