Earn college credits through WCC

WCC is now offering opportunities to earn transferable college credits through a new partnership with Walla Walla Community College. Two college courses will be offered as part of our training catalog in 2016: Plant Anatomy and Morphology, and Introduction to Agriculture & Natural Resource Careers. The courses will taught by Walla Walla Community College professors and are part of Walla Walla Community College’s Water Technology and Management and Agriculture degree programs. In addition, six-months or up to two years of WCC service qualifies as Cooperative Work Experience credits (non-transferable).

Training Catalog

Descriptions of these courses are in the training catalog. Many of these courses offer members the opportunity to earn valuable certifications upon completion.
