Plus-50 Lifelong Learning
Wake Tech offers courses designed especially for adults age 50 or older that can help you discover a new career, improve your job search skills, plan for retirement or explore personal interests. The Plus-50 program has courses that range from such as yoga to dance to Spanish to scrapbooking.
In addition to courses offered at various Wake Tech campuses and sites, we offer programs at senior centers, community and recreation sites throughout Wake County. If you take a course at a location other than a Wake Tech campus, you must register for the course at that specific location.
