Adult Basic Skills
Basic skills programs for adults offer instruction in areas such as reading, writing, mathematics, critical thinking, and job skills.
New and returning Adult Basic Skills students should call a learning center in their area to schedule an orientation. In addition, employers who want to provide basic skills training for their workers may contract for services that are designed especially for their work sites.
Adults who need to learn basic reading, writing, and math skills may attend classes tailored for their needs and study independently in a learning lab with assistance from qualified instructors. Students also may use the RCC academic success centers for basic skills review prior to taking the college placement test.
To register for an orientation for adult basic skills, GED® preparation, English as a Second Language (ESL/ELA), skills upgrade or placement test preparation, please call 541-956-7490.
