Satisfy your curiosity, learn more about that subject you've always wanted to master, or learn a trade. Join more than 25,000 students who are taking advantage of our 1,700 courses with the Workforce Development & Continuing Education (WDCE) programs at Montgomery College. WDCE students come from diverse backgrounds but have at least one thing in common: the desire to learn new things.
WDCE encompasses two separate areas: Workforce Development offers training that teaches practical, on-the-job skills, some leading to industry certification. Continuing Education classes appeal to people of all ages with a lifelong interest in learning.
We offer a wide variety of noncredit courses in many areas of study, including business and information technology; automotive, construction, and other technical training; health sciences; teacher education; English language skills; visual and performing arts; world languages; test preparation; STEM programs for youth; programs for adults with disabilities; and many more.
Course offerings are updated continuously to reflect the changing needs and interests of the businesses and communities we serve. If your business or government agency needs training for employees, we can provide customized contract training.
