Adults who have been out of school for a while and are wondering about a new career path can learn about their options in the “Returning to Learning” workshop designed by Bainbridge College (BC) Technical Studies Division and the BC Student Services Office.

There is no charge to attend.

The information session, sponsored by the Tech Studies Division, is designed for any person in the BC service area who is interested in training for a new career.

It will be on Main Campus in Bainbridge Sept. 29 and the Early County Site (BCEC) in Blakely Oct. 6. Both will be from 5 to 7 p.m. and will provide information about available Tech Studies programs, admissions process, financial aid and have a question and answer period, said Beverly Thompson, coordinator of BC’s special populations program that works with non-traditional students.
