Adult Education

Collage of Adults in Welding and CNA Night Classes
  • Career and Technical Education (CTE) is not just for high school students. The Allegan Area ESA is committed to delivering continuing education and training opportunities for adults of all ages at the Tech Center.


    Technical training in a variety of pathways and our partnership with Lake Michigan College allow adult students to complete short-term training or earn an associate’s degree right here in Allegan.


    The Tech Center and Allegan Area ESA staff members collaborate with postsecondary partners, community organizations and state agencies to promote learning and improve access to affordable and meaningful educational opportunities.


    The Tech Center seeks input from employers, adult students and other stakeholders to develop programs that increase employability, improve the quality of life and build a stronger local economy.
