College is an expensive (and valuable) investment. It’s not just an investment of money, but also of time.
This huge commitment may deter you from pursuing a college education. Many institutions offer a variety of programs. So how do you pick? How will you know if you like a subject area? Taking a college or subject area for a “test drive” may help you better choose a program that fits your interests and skills.
One approach to “test drive” a college subject would be to take a continuing education course.
These courses are less expensive and require less time commitment than a full program and may give you insight into your interests and skills.
For example, if you’ve always had an interest in graphic design but not sure if you would enjoy a career or educational experience in graphic design, a continuing education course in Photoshop may provide some insight.
Most colleges offer continuing education courses in a variety of subjects with a range of prices. Lethbridge College also offers a number of continuing education courses that can help you “test drive” a Lethbridge College subject.
