Become a Community Education
Instructor at Columbia College

Community Education is always looking for instructors that have a desire to share their skills and knowledge with others. If you feel you have something that would be of interest to others in our community, think about becoming an instructor for Columbia College Community Education. We do not require you to have a degree in order to teach one of our courses. You must, of course, have the ability to present a quality class.

There are many topics you could choose from - childrens, arts and crafts, sewing, music, science, business, personal growth, self-help, active classes, cooking, special interests, or anything else that you might come up with. Anyone that teaches a children's class (under 18 years old) must be fingerprinted with a background check.

Maybe a popular type of needlework, craft, singing group, barbershop quartet, anger management, floral design, computers, beginning oil painting, business management styles, step-by-step process of purchasing a home through an auction, wedding planning, jewelry, wood carving, bonsai, and anything else you enjoy doing or making. 

We offer not-for-credit classes, which means our office does not receive any state or federal funding for any of our courses, so all expenses of the department are funded through the course fees (this includes registration, the printed schedule, salaries for instructors, etc.).
