Shoreline Community College offers the Plus 50 Work Camp program to support baby boomers re-entering the work force. Boomers who are out of work, need to upgrade skills or change careers are the focus of these classes in keyboarding, computers, web site development, math, writing, Windows, Word and Excel and others that support organizational, financial management and project management skills.

The majority of Plus 50 classes are offered in the evening or weekends. Winter Quarter 2011 classes can be found at the college’s website.

“We know that people in this age group have experience and skills that aren’t easy to come by,” said Dave Cunningham, dean of Workforce Education at Shoreline, “so this program was designed to help them get new skills and get their confidence and skills back in place so they could move back into the work force.”

The Plus 50 registration process has been simplified and no transcripts or placement tests are required. Admission and registration forms (online) must be completed and mailed or taken to Enrollment Services tuition must be paid in advance. More information is provided here

Shoreline Community College is located at 16101 Greenwood Avenue North, just west of Aurora Avenue and north of Seattle city limits.
