Convenience counts when it comes to commuting to classes to earn a degree or get a job. With summer and fall semester registration underway, attending classes closer to home can make a difference. Del Mar College’s (DMC) Northwest Center will host an open house on Thursday, April 25, to show residents living in western Nueces County and the surrounding areas that they can pursue their dreams without a major commute.

The free open house is scheduled 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Calallen-based facility located at 13725 Northwest Blvd. near the intersection of U.S. Highway 77 and Farm-to-Market Road 624. Participants can even meet Valdar the Viking!

The Northwest Center offers credit, workforce development, health care and dual credit courses. A variety of information stations will appeal to anyone ranging from high school students interested in dual credit courses to adults looking for skills training for in-demand jobs. Information will cover programs focused on health care, safety, career training, computer programming and personal enrichment, among others. Participants can even get assistance with financial aid and admissions applications, and eligible students can register for summer and fall semester courses.

Specifically, participants can get information about the following programs:

  • Certified Nursing Assistant, Electrocardiogram, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, Phlebotomy
  • Core curriculum courses (Algebra, Composition, Psychology, U.S. History, World Geography and more)
  • Career and Community Education Courses (Microsoft Word and Excel)
