Our Mission

CCSU is committed to adult education and capacity building by using innovative concepts, processes and tools to create a learning environment that is instructive, enlightening and rooted in the CCS mission. We believe in empowering learners to improve their skills, enrich their performance and increase their knowledge.

Webinars

Some classes are taught over the internet in a Webinar format. These live classes allow students to see the class handouts or slides, see and hear the instructor talk and ask questions. Webinars can be accessed from home computers: a strong internet connection is needed. See the current catalog below for a list of Webinar classes. Pre-registration is required for all Webinar courses. Webinars are only open to CCS/CHS staff and volunteers.

Continuing Education Credits

Most CCSU classes offer Continuing Education Credits (CEU’s). CCS has been approved by the WA State Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) to provide continuing education credits for licensed mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists and social workers.

CCSU does not provide certificates for each course. Transcripts can be obtained by contacting CCSU.

CCS is also an approved education provider for the National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) and the Washington State STARS program for child care workers. Only selected classes offer NAADAC or STARS credits. If you would like to know if NAADAC or STARS credits is offered for a particular class, contact CCSU.
