Eastern & Western Suffolk BOCES Classes Begin In Mid-September

Eastern Suffolk BOCES’ Adult Education Classes have been listed this week. Copies of the Catalog are available at the Adult Reference Desk. You can also take a look at the courses by clicking here. They include classes in Barbering, Electrical, Motorcycle Mechanics, Photoshop, Nursing, and many others.

Western Suffolk BOCES’ Wilson Tech: Adult Education Classes have also been listed. You can take a look at their course catalog by clicking here.

Part and Full-Time Classes are available. Did you know that you could receive a voucher to attend classes – for free – if you are unemployed, transitioning through careers, or are a veteran? These are only a few examples. The best way to determine whether you qualify is to make an appointment with a Career Counselor. Appointments can be made by calling the library at 631-654-4700 ext. 228.

Seniors can receive up to a 10% discount on classes. Not to mention that you may be eligible for the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit – which can offset the cost of your education by reducing the amount of your income tax.
