We also offer specialized courses such as American Sign Language, Youth LINC, employment preparation courses such as LINC Works, LINC Preparation for Childcare Work, LINC Volunteer, and a Digital Literacy course to help prepare our students to study online. Our flexible delivery options allow you to study at your own pace and at a time of your choice to achieve your educational goals.
