Fleming College is offering new and returning courses that individuals can take to explore new hobbies or further their knowledge in particular study areas.

At Sutherland Campus in Peterborough, individuals can take bartending as well as cooking courses specializing in Indian or Italian cuisine. A new photography course taught by photographer Lydia Dotto – Wildlife, Ecotravel and Landscape – will explore wildlife and scenic photography. And the Art of Improv is a fun way to hone presentation skills along with awareness of situations and people. This course is taught by Daniel Matmor, an actor, writer, director and producer of theatre and film, who has worked with notables such as Stanley Kubrick and Robert Altman.

The Chainsaw operator course, ideal for farmers, hunters or anyone who might work in the outdoors, is now available at Cobourg Campus in addition to the Frost Campus. Wilderness Survival and Hike Leader/Leave No Trace certifications are also available in Lindsay.

Online courses combine a breadth of options with the convenience of learning from home.
